We will be accepting life-saving medications, doctor’s orders, and signed Individual Health Plans over the summer. If you wish to turn in your new paperwork or medications over the summer when your school’s office is closed, you may turn it in to the Educational Service Center (ESC) at 12111 NE 1st St., Bellevue, WA 98006 to the Special Education office on the 3rd floor. The hours for the ESC are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm, all summer long.

Reminder: If your student has a life-threatening medical condition – rescue medication, signed orders, and an Individual Health Plan must be returned to your student’s school by Aug. 29, 2018, or your student will be excluded from attending class. Please contact your school nurse for more information. Thank you!
Reminder: One dose of Tdap vaccine is required by state law to attend middle school and high school. If you have not provided the Tdap immunization information to your middle school or high school student, please do so immediately.
Nurses strive to assure all children have full participation in the educational programs which starts with attending daily, being well-rested, well-fed, and ready to learn. Our goal is that all children are successful in school.
To better support you and your student with a life-threatening condition, Bellevue School District is changing our summer medication storage process. If you wish to leave your student’s life-saving medication at school over the summer, we can keep it locked up at your child’s school until next year starts. If you would still like to pick up your student’s medication to keep it yourself over the summer, please come to the school on June 22 after dismissal.
If your student’s medication will expire over the summer, you will still need to provide new medication for next school year.
On May 4, 2017, Governor Inslee signed Substitute Senate Bill 5404 which took effect immediately. A new section was added to the medication in school law (RCW 28A.210.260) that allows students to have FDA-approved topical sunscreen at school without a prescription from a licensed health care professional.
