Parents/guardians of students with life-threatening health conditions must inform the school and work with the school nurse and the student’s health care provider to create a health care plan. Planning ahead helps schools to be equipped and prepared to care for students in emergency health situations.
Report the life-threatening condition on the nurse alert form
Complete the authorization to administer medication form if student needs medication at school
Complete the health care plan that is specific to the student’s illness, if applicable
All student health forms are available in the forms library or at the school office. Required documentation must be completed before the child attends school.
Life-threatening health conditions include:
Asthma – with medications or inhaler
Allergy – epinephrine injector
Additionally, students with life-threatening health conditions participating in athletics or after-school activities will need to SELF-CARRY their emergency medication anytime they are on campus for a school event such as after-school sports. Please ensure your provider approves the ability to self-carry on the Medication Authorization form. All forms must be turned into the school PRIOR to being able to attend school or any on campus activity per Washington state law RCW 28A.210.320. https://www.lwsd.org/programs-and-services/health-services/life-threatening-conditions
Until these requirements are met, your child will not be able to attend school. If you have any questions, please call Health Services support personnel at our Special Services Office: 425-936-1201.
Eastlake Student Health Services is collecting Covid vaccination information for students who have been fully vaccinated. If your student has received BOTH doses of the Covid vaccination, we urge you to take a picture or scan of the vaccination card and send it via email toEHS-Vaccinations@lwsd.org. Once we receive your vaccination card it will be verified with the Washington Immunization Information System (WAIIS) and uploaded into Skyward.
Washington state law requires school age children to receive specific immunizations in order to attend school. Lake Washington School District works with the Washington State Department of Health to comply with state laws on required vaccinations.
Washington state law RCW 28A.210.080 requires that all children show proof of immunization or certification of exemption to attend school. Students cannot start school without the required documentation.
