DIABETES

 

Your site School Nurse will assist you to plan for your student’s safety during the school day. 
It is important that we have physician and parents’ authorization signatures for diabetes management for ALL students with diabetes before each new school year begins.

If your student is able to do self-care, the physician may indicate that on the form. We recognize that some students are knowledgeable and competent with managing their diabetes and that others need assistance.  We are able to provide support in any way needed.

  • Have your student’s physician complete the PARENT CONSENT AND PHYSICIAN AUTHORIZATION and return it before classes begin.
  • Be sure to send in any necessary medication, equipment, and snacks to the school Health Office prior to the start of the school year and as needed throughout the year. 
  • It is important to have a supply of emergency glucose sources and snacks for hypoglycemia leading to loss of consciousness or during a natural disaster.
