Type 1 Diabetes Support Group: Thursday, November 15, 6-7:30 pm at Birch Lane Elementary, 1600 Birch Lane, in the Staff Room. Karla Mahoney, DJUSD School Nurse, will be discussing the differences between the Health Care Plan, IEP (Individual Educational Plan), and 504 Plan. Free Childcare will be provided! Please RSVP to: kmahoney@djusd.net

Any medication your student requires at school must have an accompanying district medication authorization. Medication forms for the 2018-19 school year can be picked up in your school office or downloaded from the Popular Forms below and to the right. If your student currently has medication in the school office, please remember to pick it up on the last day of school.

Health Concerns at School

If your child has a serious health condition such as Diabetes, Seizure Disorder, or Severe Allergy, please contact your school nurse. The school nurse can develop an individualized health plan to support your child at school.

Medication
Please fill out this form with your doctor for prescription or over-the-counter medication:
Medication Assistance Authorization

A new Authorization is required at the beginning of each school year and any time there is a change in medication directives (such as change in medication, dosage, timing, or frequency). All medication supplied to the District must be in its original labeled form (i.e., in the original prescription bottle, sealed package, etc.). Except for personal asthma inhalers, epinephrine, and glucagon kits, a student may not independently possess medication during the school day or while on District property; all medication must be turned in to the school office.
