Are schools allowed to give medication, such as ibuprofen, out to children who are needing it?

Not medicine that the child brought in for themselves for that specific reason, but medicine that the school has.

in grade school 0-8th grade Usually no, they would have to call the parent, how ever in high school some do let the nurses decide.

No. The parent must give the nurse written permission for any otc drug to be administered to a child. No exceptions
