I/we request that the board of management authorise the taking of prescription medicine during the school day as it is absolutely necessary for the continued well being of my/our child. I/we understand that the school has no facilities for the safe storage of prescription medicines and that the prescribed amounts be brought in daily. I/we understand that we must inform the school/teacher of any changes of medicine/dose in writing and that we must inform the teacher each year of the prescription/medical condition. I/we understand that no school personnel have any medical training and we indemnify the board from any liability that may arise from the administration of the medication.
