Health Care Plans

The health team is here to care for all children’s health needs while they are at school. If your child has a significant medical condition or specific medical needs, we ask that you complete the appropriate Health Care Plan and/or Health Care Provider’s Authorization for the Administration of Medication forms and submit them to the health room prior to the start of the school year. Should an emergency happen during the school year involving your child, and we don’t have any medical information or care plans on file, we will need to call 9-1-1.

Please be aware that all health-related paperwork such as Health Care Plans and Permission to Health Care Provider’s Authorization for the Administration of Medication forms are valid for only one academic school year. They must be completed for each school year. All medical forms require the signature of a health care provider with prescriptive authority as well as a parent’s signature.

Health care plans allow you the opportunity to communicate to us the individual needs of your child, as well as how you would like us to care for them should they have medical issues while at school. Summer is a great time to take these to well-child checkups for your health care provider to fill out.

Available health care plans are:

Bleeding disorders
Digestive disorders
Heart condition
Hypoglycemia
Muscular Dystrophy
Seven Skin Disorder
Cancer
Head injury
Hydrocephalus/Shunt

Any other severe, diagnosed health/emotional concern/condition
