My question involves education law in the State of: NJ
child's (excellent) private school states that only life-saving medications may be given by anyone other than the school nurse. Example, epi pen for allergies is life-saving. That is pretty much the only medication they would permit. So the medication for an allergy, that would stop the reaction hopefully from becoming life-threatening and needing an epi pen, is apparently not permitted to be given if the school nurse is not available. Medically this is not proper, but I don't know whether they are correct about the law.
Can anyone point me to a statute so I can figure out if that is in fact the law, or perhaps they are not correct in their interpretation? Does the statute give a list of medications? Proviso for doctor's note for specific children? Or parent's note?
The school is fantastic but they believe that they are obligated to have this policy by NJ law.
