We are now on the countdown Back to School !!! Less than 2 weeks – yikes!
Crazy to believe that Summer is almost over 😦
As much as I am looking forward to having some semblance of a routine back – I’m going to miss my lazy mornings and hanging out with my girls…
I received our school paperwork in the mail yesterday – the multiple pages of fun forms that need completing prior to the kids going back to school. 😉
Eden’s paperwork is a little more complicated – thankfully I got a jump start on all of her extra paperwork when school got out back in June!
- she requires doctors orders/authorization to be able to carry her insulin (in her pump) and for her emergency glucagon medication.
- she requires a signed Medical Plan so that the nurses and teachers can follow doctors orders in regards to
- high blood sugars / ketones
- low blood sugars / emergency protocol
- physical exercise
- insulin dosages
Eden also has a 504 Plan which I have spoken about (here) – which covers things like Eden’s level of self-management, immediate access to water and bathroom, blood sugar monitoring, field trips and extra curricular activities, classroom tests and emergency evacuation or shelter-in-place concerns.
We have all of Eden’s basic back to school things purchased like, binders, pens and notebooks..
Now it’s time to focus on the low blood sugar supplies that I will need to provide for EACH and EVERY classroom.. just in case..
Plus the additional supply of insulin, glucagon, testing strips and pump supplies that will be kept in the nurses office.
6th Grade comes with a new school, new routine, new teachers, PE class and greater responsibilities for Eden.
The first week of school always brings some jitters – I guarantee you – I will probably be the one with the worst case.
Eeeeek – it’s less than 2 weeks away ?!?!
