Health Concerns at School

If your child has a serious health condition such as Diabetes, Seizure Disorder, or Severe Allergy, please contact your school nurse. The school nurse can develop an individualized health plan to support your child at school.

Please fill out this form with your doctor for prescription or over-the-counter medication:

Medication Assistance Authorization (Spanish)

A new Authorization is required at the beginning of each school year and any time there is a change in medication directives (such as change in medication, dosage, timing, or frequency).

All medication supplied to the District must be in its original labeled form (i.e., in the original prescription bottle, sealed package, etc.).

Except for personal asthma inhalers, epinephrine, and glucagon kits, a student may not independently possess medication during the school day or while on District property; all medication must be turned in to the school office.
If your child has a concussion, please contact your school nurse. Have your student's health care provider complete a care plan for school.

Cardiac Emergencies & AEDs
DJUSD is committed to the health and safety our community. There is at least one AED on every district campus and AED locations are tracked on the National AED Registry for emergency services access. DJUSD staff train, run drills, and have a written plan specific to each site to address cardiac emergencies as part of our Heart Safe Schools designations.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's an easy-to-use me
dical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death for student athletes, and the cause of more than 320,000 total sudden cardiac deaths in the United States every year.
