Life Threatening Conditions

  • State law requires children with life-threatening conditions to have a medication and/or treatment order on file prior to the start of school. A "life-threatening condition" is a health condition that could be deadly to the child – during the school day – if a medication and/or treatment order is not provided. School nurses will be responsible for putting a nursing care plan in place.

    If your child has a “life-threatening” condition, please have a health care provider complete the required medication and treatment forms based on your child's health condition. All parents who have a child with a life threatening condition are required to fill out the basic packet that includes an Authorization for Exchange of Medical Information and a Contact Information form. Additional forms may be needed based on your child’s health condition. All forms and medications must be provided to your child's school before the school year begins. If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
