Medical Emergency Information and HIPAA Authorization


    Every fall, students are given “emergency cards” to complete and return to school.  These cards help us identify students who take medications and/or have special health needs. In the event of illness or injury, the information is used to contact parents or guardians. Remember: A parent signature is required.  Also included for parents to complete is an authorization form for the exchange of health and education information called the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA).  This authorization assists Student Health personnel to communicate with physician offices when necessary.
