Medical Alerts


The Medical Alert guidelines have been updated as of September 2022.

There are students in school who may have a physician diagnosed, potentially life-threatening medical condition, and may require emergency care by school staff. This is referred to as a Medical Alert Condition. The purpose of this document is to provide parents/guardians, students, administrators and school staff with guidelines for the development of the Medical Alert List and for managing the emergency plans for life-threatening medical conditions. Parents/guardians, students and staff all have a shared responsibility for keeping students safe at school.

Please complete a Medical Alert Plan(s) if your student has any of the following conditions:

  • Anaphylaxis
  • Asthma
  • ​Diabetes
  • ​Seizures ​
  • Other Conditions Requiring Emergency Care
