Back-to-School Health Checklist
This form helps to remind parents and guardians about the health forms due to the school at the beginning of each school year. (This checklist does not need to be returned to the school.)
Health Service Form
This form is provided for your physician to use to document your child’s annual physical. Many physician offices have their own forms and these are accepted as well. All students participating in sports sponsored by Ladue Schools must have an annual physical.
Kindergarten Lead Screening Form
This form is recommended by the Saint Louis County Health Department to be filled out by the primary care physician to determine whether or not the student has been exposed to lead. Exposure to lead may contribute to childhood developmental delays and learning difficulties in school. It is strongly encouraged that all students entering kindergarten be screened for lead poisoning. This form is to be returned to your child’s elementary school and will be forwarded to the Saint Louis County Health Department.
Medication Administration Form
This form must be completed by the physician and the parent/guardian if a child needs to receive medication at school. The doctor must order the medication and the parent/guardian must give the school consent to administer the medication.
Request for Self-Administration of Medication Form
This form is to be completed by the physician, parent/guardian and student. It is a supplement to the Medication Administration Form and allows students who require medication for life-threatening illnesses to carry and administer their own medications (i.e., EpiPens, inhalers, and diabetic supplies).
Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation for Athletics Form (MSHAA)
This form is required by the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHAA) to certify that each student participating in athletics is deemed physically able to participate in sports by a physician or advanced practice healthcare provider. It must be submitted annually to play sports.
Release of Information Form
This form notifies physicians that you have given consent for them to communicate with appropriate Ladue Schools personnel.
Allergy Action Plan
Students who have a history of a severe allergic reaction and a diagnosis of a life threatening allergy should have an Allergy Action Plan on file with the school nurse. This form is filled out by the student’s physician and communicates the doctor’s orders for medical intervention specific to the student in the event of an allergic reaction.
Asthma Action Plan
Students who have asthma and need to use an inhaler at school should have an asthma action plan that provides instructions for treatment at school in the event of an asthma attack or exacerbation of symptoms. This form needs to be filled out by the student’s physician.
Diabetes Medical Management Plan (DMMP)
Students who have a history of diabetes should have a Diabetes Medical Management Plan on file with the school nurse. This form is filled out by the student’s physician and communicates the doctor’s orders for medical intervention specific to the student for diabetes management while at school.
Seizure Action Plan
Students who have a history of seizures should have a Seizure Action Plan on file with the school nurse. This form is filled out by the student’s physician and communicates the doctor’s orders for medical intervention specific to the student in the event of a seizure at school.
Student Health Assessment
Student health information should be updated annually through the online registration process in the Infinite Campus parent portal. If changes occur during the school year or you missed the online registration window, then this form is to be completed to inform the school nurse of your child’s medical history and any current diagnoses. It also gives the district consent to administer first aid to your student in the school clinic or to seek medical treatment in the event of an emergency and provides information on how to reach your child’s physician should the need arise.
