            Important Information for the 2020-2021 School Year:

Thank you for your patience while details are sorted out during this most unusual time! We need all medical paperwork turned in for students with a health care plan for a life-threatening condition, there are three possible ways to deliver the medical paperwork to the school nurse. 

1) Scan your paperwork into your device and email directly to the school nurse at:    henningzimmerj@issaquah.wednet.edu


2) Your healthcare provider can fax the paperwork directly to the school to the attention of the school nurse.  These options are to collect only the paperwork.  Once we know more about when learning will resume in-person, there will be a separate date to collect medications.

3)Email me to arrange a time to meet you to submit paperwork outside the school building.

**For fall 2020, in order to comply with state law and to insure that students are safe on the first day of in person school, each student with a Life Threatening Health Care Plan must have the LTHCP and necessary medication and doctor's orders to the school before school begins with students in buildings. We are currently collecting all Life Threatening Health Care Plans, and this will enable us to process this paperwork and be ready to take in medications when school begins in personFamilies not abiding with this may not have their child begins with children in buildings.


As of August 1, 2020, Chapter 246-105 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) requires students to submit a completed Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS),Certificate of Exemption (COE),or medically verified proof of immunity that demonstrates a compliant immunization status BEFORE starting school.

                                                                                        ISD MEDICATION POLICIES:

If a student requires medication to be administered at school, we must have a completed Medication Authorization Form completed and signed by the health care provider AND the parent or guardian.  This applies to prescription and over the counter medication.    

All medication must be:

    • Brought to school by the parent

    •In the original container, labeled with the student's name, name of the medication, dosage, mode of administration, and name of the health care provider (for prescription medication).

    • Not more than a one month supply

    (On request, a pharmacist can provide an extra container—with the required information at the time the prescription filled)

In addition, RCW 28A.210.320 precludes the attendance of children with life threatening conditions at school without a medication or treatment order addressing any life-threatening health condition that the child has that may require medical services to be performed at the school.  They must have all required paperwork completed along with medications and  / or treatments at school prior to attendance.
