1. Parent/Physician Authorization for Self-Administration of Asthma or Anaphylaxis Medication by a Student
2. Parent Authorization for Independent Treatment and Monitoring of Diabetes
These forms can be used for students with asthma, anaphylaxis, and diabetes who can self-administer. When applicable, these forms must be signed by a parent/guardian and physician and are kept for the school year. A copy will be kept with the campus nurse and activity sponsor.
