Chronic Health Conditions

  • If your child has been diagnosed with a chronic or potentially life-threatening health condition such as diabetes, asthma, seizure disorder, heart condition, serious allergies, etc., we ask that you provide current health information to your child’s school health office at the start of each school year or upon diagnosis of a new health condition. Parents/guardians are asked to work with the school nurse to complete an emergency management plan for their child which will outline steps that should be taken in the event of a health emergency during the school day. This information will be shared with appropriate school personnel, keeping in mind the students right to confidentiality and their need for safety.

    For disease/condition specific information, please refer to our “links” page.  The “Infectious Diseases in the Childcare Setting” manual has lots of helpful information for specific conditions. 

    If your student participates in any activities outside of the normal school day (8:00-3:00), it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the supervisors of those activities of their child’s health concerns. If the student rides the bus to or from school, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the transportation company of their child’s health concern.
