Significant Health Conditions

For the safety of any student with a life-threatening health condition, a medication or treatment order is required to attend school in the State of Washington. A life-threatening condition is any disorder that might result in death if medical services are not delivered at school. For example, a child may have a life-threatening if there is a history of severe asthma, allergic reactions, diabetes or a heart condition. The order must be from a licensed health care provider such as a physician, physician assistant or advanced registered nurse practitioner.

Parents are responsible for annually meeting with the school nurse and providing any needed supplies, prior to the first day of school. A release to exchange information with the student’s health care provider is also requested. When the condition is life-threatening, the law provides that a child may only attend school when these requirements are met. Parents may schedule an appointment with the school nurse by contacting the Oak Heights Elementary office.
