MAINE SCHOOL ASTHMA PLAN INSTRUCTIONS
Every student with asthma in grades kindergarten through twelve should
have a current Maine School Asthma Plan completed and signed by their
physician (or other health care professional) and kept on file in the school
nurse’s office. The form must also be signed by a parent/guardian. The plan
should be updated each year or when there are major changes to the plan
(such as in medication type or dose). The physician’s office is encouraged
to fax the plan to the student’s school nurse.
The school plan is intended to strengthen the partnership of families,
healthcare providers and the school. It is based on the NHLBI Guidelines for
Asthma Management. (For more information contact the school nurse or
CARRYING AND ADMINISTERING AND QUICK RELIEF INHALERS:
Most students are capable of carrying and using their quick relief inhaler by
themselves. The student, student’s parents, school nurse and healthcare
provider should make this decision. The school nurse should also evaluate
technique for effective use.
USE OF QUICK RELIEF MEDICATIONS MORE THAN TWICE WEEKLY:
This indicates poor control of asthma. Healthcare providers should check this
box to be notified.
. PEAK FLOW ZONES (based on student’s personal or predicted best):
Green zone: Peak flow 80-100%
Symptoms and/or use of quick relief medication < 2 times a week.

Please complete attached School Asthma Plan if your child
has asthma (sometimes called reactive airways disease) and/or
has an inhaler at school
The purpose of this Plan is to keep your child, who has asthma, safe during the school day. Please complete the first section and send the Plan back to the school nurse. The school nurse will then FAX the Plan to your doctor for completion. If you prefer, you can give the Plan directly to your doctor and ask him/her to complete it and send it back to your school nurse.
The best way to keep your child with asthma safe is by having a current, updated Plan available on file at school. Please call the school nurse at your school if you have questions.
Thank you for your help.
