Students with Life Threatening Conditions

STUDENTS WITH LIFE THREATENING CONDITIONS

Washington State Law: RCW 28A.210.320

North Kitsap School District Policy: 3413

 

Prior to attendance at school, each child with a life-threatening health condition shall present a medication or treatment order addressing the condition to the school record’s staff or school nurse.
A life-threatening health condition means “a health condition that will put the child in danger of death during the school day if a medication or treatment order and a nursing plan are not in place.” Following the submission of the medication or treatment order, a nursing plan will be developed.

Students with a life-threatening health condition and no medication or treatment order presented to the school shall be excluded from school following due process until such orders are received. If you have any questions, please ask the school staff, and a school nurse will contact you as soon as possible.

Examples of Life-Threatening Conditions:

  • Severe bee sting or food allergies
  • Severe asthma, seizures, or heart problems
  • Diabetes

Any questions about other illnesses your student is experiencing should be directed to your building’s School Health Consultant or by calling our office directly at (360) 396-3580.
