ABOUT HEALTH SERVICES
The Mount Baker School District employs a certificated nurse who rotates between district buildings. In the event you need to speak directly with the nurse, contact the school your child attends and the secretary will assist you.
Before the first day of school, parents/guardians of children who have life-threatening health conditions must provide the school nurse with a copy of medication or treatment orders, and any necessary medication or equipment. The school nurse and the parent/guardian will develop an Individual Health Plan.
A life threatening health condition is one that will put the child in danger of death during the school day or school-sponsored activity if a medication or treatment order and an Individual Health Plan are not in place. This includes children with conditions such as:
Anaphylaxis to bee stings;
Severe food allergies;
Other health conditions.
If the child participates in school sponsored activities, it is the parents' responsibility to notify the school nurse that the child is beginning the activity. The nurse will review the plan with the coach/adviser prior to the child beginning the activity.
