• Food and Other Severe Allergies

    The district requests to be notified when a student has been diagnosed with a food or other life-threatening allergy.  Please complete the annual Student Health Information portion of online enrollment to report your child's allergies.  If your child's health or allergies change after completing enrollment or during the school year, please contact the school nurse.

    The following forms are required to be completed by you and your child’s physician.  These forms must be completed each school year in order for the school nurse to provide student-specific training to teachers and staff that interact with your child on a regular basis.  Please return completed forms to the school nurse as soon as possible.
