  1. RELEVANT MEDICAL HISTORY: Please complete the Asthma Information Form.
  2. MEDICATION & ORDERS: Ask your student’s Licensed Healthcare Provider to complete this Authorization for Medication in School  for your student’s medications. Please sign it to authorize the orders.
  • Rescue Inhaler: will be stored in the health room or carried by the student. If the student “self-carries”, they will need to be checked-off by their School Nurse. If the student needs help using their rescue inhaler, delegated staff will be trained by the School Nurse as appropriate.
  • Daily Medications (ie: daily antihistamine, steroid inhaler, nebulizer treatment, etc.) should be taken at home whenever possible. We recommend having a “Three-Day Disaster Supply” of daily medications at school to be administered in case of lock-down. Please touch base with your School Nurse about overnight field trips / athletic trips. Daily medications can be ordered by a licensed healthcare provider using this  Authorization for Medication in School.

All Medications are Required

  • To be in their original pharmacy labeled container
  • To match the Licensed Healthcare Provider’s order 
  • Not be expired

TAKE NOTE:

  • Depending on the severity of the asthma and your student’s ability to manage symptoms and follow orders set up by their Licensed Healthcare Provider, the School Nurse may create and School Health Plan for your student. This plan outlines what action staff must take to support your student’s asthma management. It is distributed to staff that work with your student (including substitutes). 

In some cases, this health plan and related medications MUST BE IN PLACE at the school BEFORE YOUR STUDENT CAN ATTEND. Please get in touch with your School Nurse ASAP. Who is my School Nurse?
