We have changed our practice for students with life-threatening medical conditions.

Please read below to see how we can better support your student:

Each year, by law, students who have life-threatening medical conditions:

  • Must have treatment and medication orders and unexpired medications at school.
  • Students who do not have these orders and medications at school will not be allowed to start school on the first day.

What’s new:

  • Medical orders and unexpired medications will be collected now for the 2019-20 school year.
  • Your school nurse will be contacting you with a draft Individual Health Plan and/or Medication Authorization form. Please get these forms completed and signed by your student’s provider this spring. Return them to the school before June 21, 2019 for next year.
  • You can also keep unexpired rescue medication for your student at their school over the summer, so they are ready to go on the first day.

What if I miss the spring deadline?

If you need to drop off your student’s medication or signed orders/Individual Health Plan over the summer, you can do so at the:

Educational Service Center
12111 NE 1st St.
Bellevue, WA 98005

We will make sure the medications and forms are delivered to your student’s school in August when the schools re-open for the school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school nurse.
