EpiPen Notice: Life-Threatening Allergies
Please be aware of the continued shortage of EpiPen’s in Washington state. If your child requires epinephrine due to a life-threatening allergy, secure the medication as soon as possible for the 2019-20 school year. We do not want to interrupt the learning environment due to missing required medications and forms.
Contact your pharmacist and health care provider with any questions regarding your child’s medication.
The manufacturer of EpiPen, Mylan, may also be able to help you locate medication. The manufacturer’s phone number is 1-800-796-9526.
Reminder: If your student has a life-threatening medical condition, rescue medication, signed orders, and an Individual Health Plan must be returned to your student’s school by August 26, 2019. If the school does not have these items, your student will be excluded from attending class. Please contact your school nurse for more information. See below for a list of school nurses and email addresses.
Reminder: One dose of Tdap vaccine is required by state law to attend middle school and high school. If you have not provided the Tdap immunization information to your middle school or high school student, please do so immediately. View LWSD immunization information.
Committed to the health and wellness of our students
Lake Washington School District is committed to the health and wellness of our students. Each school has a registered nurse available to provide a range of services. At the beginning of each year nurses collect student health information to plan for needs during the school day.
School nurses strive to ensure all students can fully participate in educational programs. This starts with daily attendance and includes being well-rested, well-fed, and ready to learn. Our goal is for all students to be successful in school.

- Promote health and safety
- Intervene with actual and potential problems
- Provide education and case management services
- Actively collaborate with students, families, communities, school staff and district employees
