Students With Asthma
District 105 requests that all families of students with asthma submit an asthma action plan that has been completed by their health care provider to their building's nursing office. If the student will need asthma medication at school, this action plan along with the district medication form should be completed by the parent and health care provider and submitted. (See below Required School Forms Section for both documents)

El Distrito #105 pide que todas las familias de los estudiantes con asma manden un plan de acción de asma que se haya sido realizado por su médico, a la oficina de enfermería de la escuela de sus niños. Si el estudiante va a necesitar medicamentos para el asma en la escuela, este plan de acción junto con el formulario de medicamentos que deben estar en la escuela del distrito, debe ser completado por el proveedor de salud y los padres y llevado a la escuela. (Vea aquí abajo la “sección de formas de escuela” para los documentos requeridos)

School District 105 Health and Safety Information
Administering Medication to Students

Students should not take any medication during school hours or during school activities unless their licensed health care provider and parent/guardian believe it is necessary. Any medications dispensed during school hours or school activities must adhere to the District's policy and procedures on dispensing medication.. A "School Medication Authorization Form" must be completed and and signed by both the parent/guardian AND the child's licensed health care provider. NO student shall possess or consume any prescription or over the counter medication on school grounds other than what is stated in the School District 105 policy and procedures. Medication at school needs to be brought in by a parent/guardian and be in an unopened sealed container. If the medication is a prescription it needs to be in the original container. A student may carry with them an epinephrine auto injector or inhaler for immediate use at the student's discretion with health care provider and parent written permission. For more information on School District 105 medication policy, please refer to the Student Handbook. Any questions please ask one of our staff nurses.

Guidelines for Keeping Ill Students Home

  • Keep students at home if they have the following
    • Fevers (temperature of 100 or above). Do not give students medications to reduce the fever and then send them to school.
    • Vomiting and/or diarrhea. Students should be kept at home with these symptoms and for at least 24 hours after they have happened last.
    • Rashes that have not been checked by a doctor. If the student will be coming to school with a rash that the doctor has checked, a doctor’s note is required noting that the student is cleared to come to school.
    • Red, pink, crusty, irritated eyes. If your student will be coming to school with red, pink, crusty, or irritated eyes that the doctor has checked, a doctor’s note is required noting that the student is cleared for school attendance.
    • Any problems like severe coughing, colds, sore throats, earaches, or stomachaches that will make it hard for the student to participate comfortably in the school day.
  • Please have plans in place in case your student needs to be sent home ill from school. Plan for who might be available to pick students up and have a back-up plan.
  • Make sure family contact phone numbers are up to date in the school’s office.
  • Report specific symptoms when calling students in sick (e.g. fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash) and let us know if the doctor has made any diagnosis.

What can we all do to prevent illness? Please teach these to children and provide frequent reminders.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water. Spend at least 20 seconds washing. Easy ways to teach children to spend 20 seconds: hum the Happy Birthday song twice, sing it silently in their head, or count slowly from 1-20.
  • Keep hands away from the mouth, eyes, and nose.
  • Cover coughs with the inside bend of the elbow or a tissue (and throw the tissue right in the garbage).
  • Avoid sharing eating utensils or drinking cups/straws.
  • Cover open wounds, cuts, or sores with a bandage.
If you have any health related questions or concerns please contact the nurse at your child’s school.
