HELP US MEET THE HEALTH AND SAFETY NEEDS OF YOUR CHILD

  • Students with Asthma should keep an INHALER in their backpack and/or in the Health Office.  
  • Students with Food/Insect/Latex Allergies should keep an EPIPEN in their backpack and/or in the Health Office. 
  • Parents of students with Asthma should also update the health office with physician orders; all students carrying an inhaler must have a doctor's order on file in the health office.
  • Update the school health office with any new medical diagnoses your child has or any new medications your child is taking.
  • Inform the school health office of any changes to your child's emergency card/contacts; including new phone numbers.
  • Update the school health office with  any known severe food allergies (such as tree nuts, peanuts, etc.) or other severe allergies (such as insect bites) your child has.  Please make sure the school health office has current health care provider orders for EPIPENS and BENADRYL.
  • Provide the school health office with EPIPENS and BENADRYL as ordered by your child's physician in the event of an emergency as Volcano Vista is NOT a "peanut free" school.

NO MEDICATION OR SUPPLIES CAN BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT A VALID ORDER SIGNED BY THE MEDICAL PROVIDER AND THE PARENT.

APS school staff will no longer be able to facilitate completion of medication forms by the student's provider. 

Medical providers are no longer accepting fax requests regarding orders to provide nursing care for your student. It is critical that you obtain these orders signed by the provider and parent, PRIOR to the beginning of the school year.  

Immunizations

This form must be completed and approved by the Department of Health prior to registration each school year.  

If there is a case of any  vaccine preventable disease at your child’s school, students who have a state approved exemption may be excluded from school.  This exclusion can be for about 21 days. Because this exclusion is a home quarantine, those students excluded from school would not be eligible for on-site homework assistance (such as home hospital).
