During Field Trips, all medications are kept in the safekeeping of Peak to Peak staff and administered only by staff who have been delegated to give medications by the Peak to Peak School Nurse Consultant.
A volunteer is never responsible for medication administration.
A student can self carry an inhaler or an Epi pen ONLY if the Medication Administration Authorization is signed by a Health Care Provider indicating that student is capable.
DAY FIELD TRIPS
Peak to Peak is required to follow BVSD Health Services Policy regarding medications and field trips.
The health room will provide medications for field trips during school hours only if a parent/guardian has provided them. BVSD Health services does not require the health room to provide as needed (PRN) medications on a day field trip.
AFTER SCHOOL HOUR EVENTS
The health room will NOT provide medications for events that happen after school hours.
It is the responsibility of families to provide medications and training to staff/chaperones.
Staff can refuse the responsibility of medications.
OVERNIGHT EXTENDED FIELD TRIPS
Medications that your student takes at home will need to be provided for all extended field trips.
All medications must comply with BVSD policy. See the Medication page for specific details.
Please give the health room time to alert our School Nurse Consultant so that she can properly delegate safe medication administration to staff chaperones.
Peak to Peak staff are responsible for administering and storing all medications on overnight trips which take place IN Colorado.
Students are responsible for administering and storing all medications on overnight trips which take place OUT of Colorado. The exception is controlled substances which are required to be carried and stored by staff on out of state trips - students will still self-administer their own medications.
Please contact the BVSD School Nurse Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the health room at 303-453-4616 if you have any questions or concerns.
