Diabetes

Students with Diabetes will have an individualized health treatment plan created based upon their doctor’s orders. A daily schedule will be set up for checking blood sugar and administering insulin. Health clerks will monitor blood sugar levels and communicate student needs/concerns to district nurse and/or parents. The district nurse or parent will administer insulin. Parents and staff will have fluid communication regarding the students’ diabetes management throughout the school day as needed. Diabetes testing equipment, and insulin must be provided by the family and equipment must be well maintained. Glucose tabs, Glucagon, juice, and other treatments for low blood sugar are provided by the family as well and are kept in the health office. Some older students who are independent with their diabetes management must have a doctor’s order indicating such. Parents are responsible for providing back up equipment/treatments to keep in the health office.
