Diabetes requires attention "24-7"

If your child has diabetes, please be sure to:

  • Meet with the nurse before the start of school to develop a plan for how your child's diabetes will be managed throughout the school day.
  • Update your child's diabetic action plan at the beginning of every school year. Action plans need to be signed by the parent and health care provider.
  • Provide needed supplies for diabetic management (glucometer, test strips, lancets, snacks, insulin, alcohol wipes, etc)
  • Stay in close contact with the nurse at your child's school about their routine, update any changes or concerns.
