Allergy, Asthma, Diabetes, Seizure Action Plans
If your student has a chronic illness please inform the School Nurse before the school year begins. If the student must take medication you will need to have a Medical Authorization to Administer Medication Form filled out & signed by your Health Care Provider. Any prescription drug must be brought to school in the ORIGINAL prescription bottle with the label on the outside including student's name, medication instructions, and doctor's name along with a completed Medication Log for the current school year.
If your student needs to carry insulin, an inhaler, EpiPen, an antihistamine, or seizure medication in their backpack while on campus, the parent/guardian must sign a Self-Carry (Consent to Carry) form at the Health Center AND fill out an Action Plan for that student's particular medical condition. This way, we know how you would like us to treat your student's health condition here at school.
If your student has severe allergies (food, nuts, seasonal, etc.) that require medication, please complete an Anaphylaxis Emergency Action Plan form and bring the any necessary medication to the Health Center.
