Chronic Conditions

When a student has a diagnosed condition (i.e., diabetes, asthma, seizures, heart conditions or severe allergies), it is necessary for the parents to provide this information at the beginning of each school year on the health and emergency information form. Parents will receive a medical management plan stating what steps typically will be taken if an emergency situation occurs. Parents, the student and the school nurse will collaborate to individualize the plan to meet the student's specific health needs. Any restriction or limitations at school will be included. Students' health information will be shared with appropriate school personnel, keeping in mind confidentiality.
