Yesterday we had the official "Care Plan Meeting"(not to be confused with the dreaded 504 meeting).
In attendance were both coaches, the music teacher, art teacher, AGP math teacher, AGP science teacher, school nurse, guidance counselor and myself. Justin's regular classroom teachers did not attend because I had already sat down with them before the first day of school.
Overall, the meeting was short and sweet(30 minutes). It seemed to be well received and the nurse and I were even asked a few questions. I introduced them all to D'COM (Dexcom Seven Plus CGM) and gave them a few information sheets to look over and ponder.
These info sheets are the reason for this post.
Thank goodness for Heidi over at
Heidi had shared some of her school documents with us and it gave me a GREAT place to start.
I changed things up to meet Justin's needs of course, but I think the teachers appreciated them.
The first page was a letter to substitute teachers. At least where I live, the teacher is SUPPOSE to leave the care plan in the sub folder. Now, I can say as a sub... this has never been left for me (yes, there has been times it should have). So that is where this handy little paper comes in. The school nurse said it was just enough info and she liked that it had a photo on it.
The second one is a quick sheet of some things teachers need to know or be on the lookout for. Mine is WAY shorter than Heidi's because Justin sees a nurse and Jack tests in the class. Her form reminds me of what our care plan is... so maybe I just utilized it in a different way than she does.
The third page I am going to share has nothing to do with the care plan meeting. I made it to give to the bus driver in case of an emergency.
I am sure I will make adjustment to these in order to perfect them, but they were a great start and I am thankful I had Heidi's help.
