SHARING OF MEDICAL INFORMATION
Current privacy legislation prohibits school nurses from sharing medical information with other school personnel, even when required for emergency services, without written parental permission. Because sharing important information on a need-to-know basis can greatly enhance a child's academic performance and personal safety, the office of pupil services strongly urges parents to provide that permission. Discretion is guaranteed. Please visit the Health Forms page to access this form.
