Sending a student back to school, whether it is the first time after a new diagnosis, or the start of a new school year, requires careful planning and coordination.
Parents need to be proactive in working with the child’s health care provider so that a Diabetes Medical Management Plan form is completed in time to assist the school team with creating a care plan based on the student’s current needs and abilities. Of course, parents are a vital part of that team planning!
The following are tip sheets to help parents, health care providers and schools work together to make the transition back to school both safe and smooth.
- Back-to-School Checklist
- Lesson Plans: How to Keep Your Child Safe at School
