    Prepare for Your Student's Health at School

    Washington state law requires that school staff and parents plan together for the safe care of their child throughout the school day.

    • Health issues: Please report any health issue your child has that could impact safety and learning at school to the school nurse. You can contact the nurse directly by phone or e-mail. Or fill out the online student verification form (in month of September) or through the Annual Student Health Information Update paper form. Examples include: Seizures, diabetes, asthma, life-threatening allergic reaction, cancer treatment, and anemia.
    • Medication at school: If your child needs to take any type of medication during the school day, even if it’s temporary, a medication form must be completed by the child’s health care provider and signed by parent. Authorization for Medications Taken at School (multiple languages)
    • Medical treatments at school: If your child needs a treatment at school, such as: G-tube feeding, insulin calculation, clean urinary catheterization, suctioning, nebulizer, dressing change, and others please have the health care provider complete the treatment form. Authorization for Treatments and Procedures to be Performed at School

    Fall Flu Shots

    Protect yourself and your community from the flu. Seattle Visiting Nurse Association will provide your annual flu shot to students (ages 4 and older), staff and community members.

    Most forms of insurance (including Apple Health and Medicaid) and cash or check are accepted. Visit the SPS Flu Clinics page for dates/times for a clinic year you.

    Students who are enrolled in their school-based health center can also get the flu shot. Visit the King County School Health website for a listing of locations.

    School-Based Health Centers

    Students have access to additional health services through the school-based health center located at this or a nearby school.
    Services are available to all students, regardless of their ability to pay. Your insurance may be billed and this program is also supported by the Seattle Families, Education, Preschool, and Promise Plan.

    Services include immunizations, sports physicals, prescriptions, reproductive healthcare, mental health counseling, lab tests, and nutrition counseling.

    Families must enroll their student to receive most services. Students can enroll themselves for confidential health services.
