ANNUAL NOTICE TO ADULT STUDENTS OR
PARENT(S)/GUARDIAN(S) OF STUDENTS UNDER THE AGE OF 16
A completed Student Medical Form (FORM A1420 - 1) is required each school year, or when a medical need is identified, or when the student transfers to another school, in order to authorize the administration of prescribed medication to students who require it during school hours, or when the medication and/or dosage requirements change.
Specific to asthma, every student is now permitted to carry their asthma medication if the student has their parent’s/guardian’s permission.
Parent(s) /guardian(s) and adult students are responsible for ensuring that a current, completed Student Medical Form is on file at the school. Parent(s)/guardian(s) and adult students are also to complete a Plan of Care for students with prevalent medical conditions such as anaphylaxis, asthma, type 1 diabetes, or epilepsy/seizure disorder.
Some students may experience severe life-threatening allergic reactions to bee, hornet, wasp or other flying insect stings or to certain foods or food ingredients such as peanuts. For students with life-threatening allergies, it is recommended that two doses of an epinephrine auto-injector are available on site at school.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions you may have.
