Asthma District Program

  • Students with asthma on average miss 3x's more school than a healthy student. 1 in 10 children have asthma.  

    Annual statistics:  

    3,600 deaths due to asthma

    13.8 million missed school days by students

    14.2 million work days by parents

     

    Appropriate asthma care is essential to health and well-being of children.  It takes a circle of support that facilitates communication among clinicians, school nurses, families and community.  Each member is integral part of the care team.

    Please provide an emergency action plan from your healthcare provider to the school nurse when a rescue inhaler has been provided for school use. 

     

    All student-occupied buildings are stocked with albuterol 0.083% via nebulizer for treatment of a life-threatening asthma attack.   Any questions please feel free to contact your child's building nurse or the Health Services & Wellness Coordinator at natalie.botkin@republicschools.org.
