Special Medical Needs

  • It is Tempe Union High School District’s goal to provide each student with the maximum learning opportunities within a minimally restrictive environment. All medical conditions that may impair your student's ability to perform in class must be reported to the school nurse. This information will help the nurse to improve your student's ability to perform in the classroom and reduce feelings of difference among their peers.

    Ongoing communication between parents, students, and staff is vital to a student's success in Tempe Union High School District. We believe in building relationships with our students, and it is important that all personnel coming into contact with a student be aware of any accommodations that a student may need. A team approach involving any appropriate personnel is used in providing the best learning experience for students. The school nurse's role is to coordinate the care between home and school. Please contact your campus’ school nurse for assistance.

    Special Education Resources & Forms:
    Students with certain chronic health conditions may need special accommodations related to school attendance. If you believe your child would qualify for these accommodations, please contact your campus’ school nurse for directions on completing this Chronic Health Condition Form Packet - PDF.

    Student Health Care Plans:
    At Tempe Union High School District, it is required that all students who have a specific health condition must have an Action Health Care Plan on file in the Health Office. This Action Plan needs to be updated yearly.
    Family Responsibility:

    • Notification of the school of the child's condition, medication, special needs, and changes to health status.
    • Working with the school team to develop a plan that accommodates the child's needs throughout the school year. This plan includes inside of the classroom, in the cafeteria, during school-sponsored activities, and while on the school bus. All of this information will be included in the child's Action Health Care Plan.
    • Meeting with teachers to set up expectations for maintaining communication and continuity during absences.
    • Providing updates to home and emergency contact information.
