A completed Student Medical Form (FORM A1420-1 attached) is required each school year, or when a medical need is identified, or when the student transfers to another school, in order to authorize the administration of prescribed medication to students who require it during school hours, or when the medication and/or dosage requirements change.
Specific to asthma, every student is now permitted to carry his or her asthma medication if the student has his or her parent’s or guardian’s permission.
Parents/guardians and adult students are responsible for ensuring that a current, completed Student Medical Form is signed by a physician and on file at the school.
Some students may experience severe life-threatening allergic reactions to bee, hornet, wasp or other flying insect stings or to certain foods or food ingredients such as peanuts. For students with life-threatening allergies, it is recommended that two doses of an epinephrine auto-injector are available on site at school.
Where there is no change in the medical condition, a parent/guardian/adult student may request to extend an existing MRP for an additional school year, to a maximum of two school years. In order to extend the existing MRP it must be signed, dated and witnessed by school administration.
After two years, an updated Student Medical Form with physician instructions and signature is required.
