AsthmaStudents with a history of asthma/wheezing often require medical management during the school day. Having an asthma action plan on file in the health room is important for caring for your student. If your student will need an inhaler at school, a current Asthma Action Plan from your health care provider is required.
Students in grades K-3 are not permitted to carry and self-administer inhalers at school. Please contact the health room staff to discuss your student's condition and inhaler use.
Students in grades 4-12 who have been diagnosed with asthma are permitted to carry and self-administer inhalers at school with the following forms on file in the health room:
Permission to Self-Carry Medications (must be completed by parent/guarding AND health care provider)Asthma Action Plan (must be completed by health care provider)
The physician's form may be faxed to your child's school.
