  • Parent/Guardian Instructions for Students with Chronic Health Conditions

    If your child has a chronic health condition and may need assistance while in school, he/she should be referred to the principal at your child’s school.

    Students may require assistance with medical procedures while in school.  Some examples include students with diabetes, asthma, seizures or severe allergic reactions to peanuts or insect stings.

    All medical procedures are child-specific. Examples of medical procedures are as follows:

    • Clean Intermittent Catheterization
    • G-Tube Feedings
    • Suctioning
    • Blood Glucose Monitoring/Insulin Administration/Glucagon
    • Epi-pen administration for severe allergic reaction
    • Diastat rectal gel

    A completed Authorization for Medication/Treatment form is required for all medical procedures to be performed during the school day.
