Health Concerns at School

If your student has a diagnosed health condition, the School Nurse can develop an individualized health plan to support your student at school.

Students with temporary illnesses or injuries may receive instruction in their homes or in a hospital/care facility. See Home and Hospital Instruction for more information.

Students with health conditions such as diabetes, seizures, and life-threatening allergies are protected by Federal law. To learn more about these protections, see 
504 Plan Information.

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

Medication Assistance Authorization (Spanish)

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.

Health Emergency Programs

Cardiac Emergencies & AEDs
DJUSD is committed to the health and safety of our community. There is at least one AED on every District campus, and AED locations are tracked on the National AED Registry for emergency services access. DJUSD staff train, run drills, and have a written plan specific to each site to address cardiac emergencies as part of our Heart Safe Schools designations.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's an easy-to-use me
dical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death for student athletes, and the cause of more than 320,000 total sudden cardiac deaths in the United States every year.

In collaboration with UC Davis Children's Hospital and Project ADAM Sacramento, all campuses throughout the District have been designated Heart Safe Schools.

Anaphylaxis & Stock Epi-Pen
All school sites have stock Epi-Pens on hand to respond to anaphylaxis in persons who do not have emergency medication on site or who have not been previously diagnosed with an allergy. 

Credentialed School Nurses train teachers, administrators and staff to recognize signs of anaphylaxis and administer epinephrine.

DJUSD Stock Emergency Medications
Opioid Overdose & Stock Naloxone

All DJSUD school sites have access to naloxone, which is the medication that can reverse a fentanyl (or other opioid) overdose and save a life. 

DJUSD Health Services staff are all trained to recognize the signs of opioid overdose and use naloxone. Credentialed School Nurses have also trained teachers, administrator and staff members to do the same.

Naloxone is readily available on all DJUSD campuses, attached to all AEDs.
