The doctor must approve, on the correct medication form, for your child to self-carry Epinephrine or Asthma Rescue Inhalers.  A self-carry contract will also need to be completed and your child will need to talk to the nurse before he/she/they are approved to self-carry these medications at school.

     – Please provide the school nurse at the beginning of the school year (preferably 
         before school starts) with your child’s Health Care Provider Orders, signed by
         both the doctor and parent
You may also provide any back up supplies you would like to be stored in the clinic for the school year.
     – If your student is able to independently manage their diabetes,
         an “Independent Diabetes Management – Student Agreement” form
         must be completed by the student and parent and then the school nurse.
     Form:  Agreement-for-Student-Self-Management Diabetes – 2020

Diabetes Care Plans for at school and other forms will be created by the school nurse after receiving both the Health Care Provider Orders and, if applicable, the “Independent Management of Diabetes – Student Agreement” forms.  Care Plans, etc. will be sent home after created, most likely with your student, for you to review, make corrections if necessary, sign and return to the school nurse.

You may also contact DSA’s school nurse for medication forms.
