School Health Care Plan (HCP) Information
 
If you child requires accommodations for a health condition while at school, he/she may be eligible for a Health Care Plan.  Health Care Plans must be renewed each school year. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to request a Health Care Plan each year.  To do so, please follow the guidelines below.
 
For Bee Sting Allergy, Food Allergy, or Asthma: Please download the appropriate HCP for your child linked below.  Fill out the HCP with your child’s doctor, attach a current picture to the top, and turn the completed HCP in to your school office.
 
 

The linked HCPs have several parts so please read the instructions carefully.

  • If your child does require medication to be kept at school (or has an order to self-carry an emergency medication), please fill out the Medication Order section with your child’s doctor.
  • If your child does not require medication be kept at school, please indicate “no meds required” in the Medication Order from section of the HCP.

HCPs for Other Conditions:  HCPs for other medical needs—seizures, Cystic Fibrosis, ITP, etc—will need to be drafted with the School Nurse.  To initiate this process, please bring the items listed below to your school office and schedule a meeting with the school nurse to draft a HCP for your child.


  • If your child does require medication to be kept at school please fill out the School Medication Order Form with your child’s doctor.
  • If your child does not require medication be kept at school, please bring:
    • A signed note from your child’s physician indicating your child’s diagnosis (current within 12 months) and suggested health accommodations necessary to provide educational access
    • An Authorization for Exchange of Information

Medication at School
 
If your child requires access to medication at school, even over the counter medication, you must provide a physician signed Medication Order Form with your child’s medication.  Please drop off the form and medication in your school’s front office for review by your child’s school nurse.
