Asthma Self-Administration Form: Students can carry and self-administer inhaled asthma medications at school. This link takes you to the Utah School Nurses Guidlines page with both English and Spanish forms available. The form provides the necessary written information to allow your student to carry an inhaler.
Asthma Action Plan (Español): Ask your doctor for a written Asthma Action Plan for the school. This plan should include asthma symptoms, triggers, medications, and emergency contact information.
Tips for working with schools if your child has asthma:
Plan a meeting with school staff (school nurse, teacher, and physical education teacher) before school starts to review the Asthma Action Plan and your child's asthma symptoms, triggers, and medications.
Keep in touch. Continue talking with your child and school staff about managing asthma at school on a regular basis. Talk with school staff if your child misses school and assignments.
