News from the Nurse: Health Plans DUE August 19

Please have the completed forms and any medications or equipment brought to the school your child will be attending in the fall as soon as possible after August 8th and NO LATER THAN AUGUST 19TH. Some time is needed to complete the nursing care plan and train/distribute to staff members who must be aware of your child’s health plan.


Children with life-threatening conditions such as severe bee sting allergies, severe food allergies, EpiPen prescriptions, severe asthma, diabetes, severe seizures or other serious illnesses, that may require medical services at school, are required to have a medication or a treatment order and a care plan in place before starting school. A life-threatening condition is defined as a health condition that will put a child in danger of death during the school day if a medication or treatment order and nursing plan are not in place.


We want our school to be a safe and healthy place for your child to attend. State Law mandates that we must be prepared to handle an emergency that could arise on the first day of school. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter and adherence to this deadline.
