Life-Threatening and Medical Conditions

Posted September 12, 2018

This year a new UGDSB policy is in place supporting students with life-threatening medical conditions.

Students with life-threatening medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, or those who are at risk of anaphylaxis due to life-threatening allergies, require the development of a Plan of Care. These students may require support for their medical needs while at school, during school-based activities, and/or while using school transportation services.

The Plan of Care will replace our existing Life-Threatening Management and Prevention Plan and Asthma Management Plan.  There is a distinct Plan of Care for students with Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes and Epilepsy.  In addition, there is a general LTMC Plan of Care for any condition that is not covered under the other four forms.

When this applies, we are asking parents along with their health care provider to:

-Complete the appropriate Plan of Care form

-Obtain Health Care Provider Signature

-Meet with the principal to discuss the Plan of Care

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
