Sending your child to school with medical needs:  

If your child has any medical conditions please do not hesitate to speak with your child's teacher, principal, AND school nurse.  The School Nurse is available to help assess what your child needs to succeed at school and we can develop Individualized HealthCare Plans or Emergency Care Plans for them.  Below are some quick references for common medical issues, but we understand that our students have many other medical needs beyond those listed here.

For the student with Asthma

  • Please schedule an appointment to talk with your child's teacher, principal and school nurse.
  • If your child will have an inhaler in the office please provide the school secretary with a physicians order for their medication.  You will also have to sign a permission form so we can administer the medication at school.
  • If your child will be carrying their own medication please have your doctor sign the MT Authorization to Self Carry and Self Administer Asthma Medication form and give a copy to the school to keep on file.
  • Does your child's asthma interfere with their daily life?  The Montana Asthma Program is a great resource that helps your child learn about and control asthma.  Please contact the Montana Asthma Program Home Visiting Nurse at 406-395-4305.
