Health Concerns

MPUSD’s Health Services team is committed to ensuring your student’s health and safety while at school. If your student has a health concern that may impact them during the school day please let your school staff, and Health Services team members, know. Below is a list of four common health concerns in the school setting. If your child’s health concern is not among them, but requires medication or specialized procedures during the day, please contact your school for any necessary paperwork. Thank you!

Allergies

If your student has a severe allergy please have their doctor fill out the Allergy Action Plan below. A Medication Permit will be required for each medication needed on campus (i.e. one for Benadryl, one for EpiPen). MPUSD is not currently authorized to stock EpiPen and EpiPen Jr.

Asthma

If your student has asthma please have their doctor fill out the Asthma Action Plan below. A Medication Permit will be required for each medication needed on campus. MPUSD recommends that all students with asthma have an inhaler on campus in case of an emergency. Inhalers can be carried by students and self-administered if signed off by a doctor.

Diabetes

If your student has diabetes please have their doctor fill out the Diabetes Management Plan below, or provide your student’s school with a copy of the plan generated by your student’s doctor’s office. School staff are happy to assist your student with the management of their diabetes while at school. If your child manages their diabetes independently please have this indicated by the doctor on their Diabetes Management Plan. A Medication Permit will be required for each medication needed on campus (i.e. one for insulin, one for glucagon).

Stock Supplies & Medications


MPUSD is not currently authorized to stock any medications on campus. If your child requires medications for their health condition (including inhalers, allergy medications such as EpiPens, or insulin) it must be provided to the school with the appropriate paperwork. Please visit the Medications tab for more information regarding medications.

While schools do have stock first aid supplies, there is no stock available for specialized procedures. If your student requires supplies for procedures such as blood glucose checks, gastric tube feedings, or catheterizations, supplies must be provided to the school. School staff will be happy to remind you of decreasing stock, if your student is unable to do so.

We appreciate your help in ensuring your student has everything they need to maintain their health while at school.
