Health Conditions


If your child has a potentially life threatening health conditionwe need a new care plan and if needed, an authorization for your child to have a medication at school, each school year. The school lists most life threatening health conditions as asthma with a rescue inhaler, allergy with an EpiPen prescribed, seizures, diabetes with insulin and heart conditions.

All forms must be completed & signed by parent and licensed health care provider (LHCP) and received in your child’s school health room prior to classes starting on the first day of school. If an emergency medication is prescribed, they need to have the medication on the bus as well.

Please be aware that the forms can be found under each health concern in this webpage under  >Parent forms for Student Health Conditions. 

If your child has had an emergency medication in the past, but you feel they no longer need it, then we have to have a LHCP note stating that they no longer need the medication at school.

The School Nurse will be available during regular school hours starting August 26, 2019. Please call Sonja at 360-477-7728, with any questions or concerns.

NOTICE OF HIV/STD PREVENTION EDUCATION CLASS

Dear Parent/Legal Guardian:

In response to the growing threat of HIV to our population, the 1988 Washington State Legislature mandated that a program of prevention education be presented to students yearly, beginning with the 5th grade.  The Sequim School District #323 has adopted an appropriate program for HIV/AIDS prevention education with the advice of educators, parents, and community members.  This is a graduation requirement and includes students in the Running Start program (alternative essay information is available in the Sequim High School Office). 

Sequim High School 9-12th grade students will be attending an HIV/AIDS class on Monday Feb. 4th, 2019.  The HIV/AIDS class will be taught in your student’s DEN class.

Two parent preview meetings were held in October 2018, to allow parents to preview the curriculum. State law provides that a parent or guardian must attend such a meeting before they can have their child or legal ward excused from participation in the HIV prevention program. 

If you have any questions, please call Sonja Bittner, School Nurse at 360-477-7728
