Asthma

Asthma is a chronic health condition that affects a person's lungs and their ability to breath. If your child has asthma, please consider completing an Asthma Action Plan form with your child's doctor and providing the school nurse with a copy.  This plan will remain on file in the health office and will be shared with staff on a need-to-know basis.  Asthma Action forms are very important resources for the nurse to have in the event of an emergency or if your child develops an urgent asthma need during school hours. This form should be up-dated each school year. To take the online Asthma Control Test (ACT), go to www.asthma.com to find out what your child's score is and to obtain information that can be printed out and shared with your child's doctor.
