    Asthma

    All students who have an inhaler at school must have

    • Current medication orders (H144a), signed by a Health Care Provider and Parent/Guardian
    • Unexpired, properly labelled inhaler

    Depending on the severity of your student's asthma, and their ability to manage symptoms, the School Nurse may create a Health Plan for your student. This plan outlines what action staff must take to support your student’s asthma management. In some cases, this health plan and related medications must be in place before your student can attend.
