A completed “Permission to Administer Medication for Extended Field Trips” form is required for:
Any student who DOES NOT have a current active permission form on file
Any student who requires medication outside the school day
We do NOT need an additional Permission to Administer Medication (PTAM) form to give medications during school hours to students who currently have a signed form and medication(s) at school. An extended field trip/camp is considered school. For example, if we have permission to give medications at 10AM and 2PM, just make a copy of the current medication administration permission form to use at camp. This also applies to “as needed” medication such as inhalers and epi-pens.
If we currently have permission to administer medications at school to a student who requires those medications OUTSIDE of school hours an additional medication administration permission form is needed. For example, we have permission to administer a medication at 10AM and 2 PM, but the student also has a dose at 7PM, an additional PTAM form is required for the 7PM dose.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for providing enough medication whiletheir student is at camp.
