Why is slime stretchy? How do chickens flap their wings? 

With these questions in mind, two science classes at Lake Washington High School celebrated the last week of school by setting up lab experiments. The labs also gave students a chance to use the new equipment in two of the school’s 20 new classrooms.

    Administration of Medication at School

    File: 3416

    Under normal circumstances prescribed medication should be dispensed before and/or after school hours under the supervision of the parent or guardian. However, the District recognizes that in certain circumstances in-school administration of medication is necessary to meet student health needs. 

    Medication means oral medication, topical medication, eye drops, or nasal spray.

    State law governing medication administration in schools requires a, current written authorization from a licensed health professional prescribing within the scope of his or her prescriptive authority together with written authorization from parent(s) or guardian(s) in order for school personnel to administer medications to students.  

    The Superintendent shall establish procedures for:

    1. Delegating, training and supervision of staff members in the administration of prescribed or non-prescribed medication to students by a physician or registered nurse; 
    2. Designating staff members who may administer prescribed or non-prescribed medication to students;
    3. Obtaining signed and dated parental and health professional requests for the administration of prescribed or non-prescribed medications, including instructions from the health professional if the medication is to be given for more than 15 days;
    4. The identification of medication;
    5. Storing prescribed and non-prescribed medications in a secure location;
    6. Maintaining records pertaining to the administration of prescribed or non-prescribed medication; and
    7. Permitting, under limited circumstances, students to carry and self-administer their own medications.
