What if my student has DIABETES?
Please get in touch with your School Nurse ASAP.
Who is my School Nurse?
The School Nurse will create a Health Plan specific for your student based on information you provide. This plan outlines what action staff must take to support your student’s diabetes management. It is distributed to staff that work with your student.
Washington State Law requires that students with a Life-Threatening Health Condition, including Diabetes, have treatment orders from a Licensed Healthcare Provider, supporting medications and supplies, and a Health Plan in place at school before they can attend.
PROVIDE THE SCHOOL NURSE WITH:
Some families plan for their student to carry their supplies and medications with them. If this is the case for your student, the School Nurse will check with them to make sure they have everything.
All Medications Must:
- Intramuscular Glucagon can only be administered by a School Nurse or Paramedic. Nasal Glucagon can be administered by staff that have been trained by the School Nurse.
- Students that require nursing support to check blood sugar and/or administer insulin will receive necessary assistance and care. Families of elementary-age students with diabetes may be interested in Consolidated Health Services offered at Chase Lake Elementary.
