    Students With Life Threatening Health Conditions

    File: 3413.A

    In order to address the health and safety needs of students with life threatening health conditions, the District requires the presentation of treatment orders and medications prior to school attendance. 

    Students with life threatening health conditions are required to submit a medication or treatment order addressing the life-threatening condition on, or before, the first day of school attendance. Students with life-threatening conditions who fail to present the necessary documentation and/or medication(s) shall be excluded from school until such time as a medication or treatment order has been provided. 

    Life threatening health conditions are those that place the child in danger of death during the school day if a medication or treatment order and nursing plan are not in place. 

    Parents of students with life threatening conditions who are to be excluded under this policy shall receive written notice prior to their child’s exclusion. The procedure for excluding students with life threatening health conditions will be consistent with the State Board of Health’s rules governing exclusion. 

    Children excluded under this policy shall resume school attendance upon District receipt of the necessary orders and medications. 

    This policy shall be applied consistent with the requirements of section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
