Seizure Care

Seizures involve sudden, temporary, bursts of electrical activity in the brain that change or disrupt the way messages are sent between brain cells. These electrical bursts can cause involuntary changes in body movement or function, sensation, behavior or awareness. Some may start with minor symptoms, and then lead to a fall or loss of consciousness; other seizures may end in just a few seconds.  Therefore students with a history of seizures should submit an annual Seizure Action Plan signed by their physician and parent.  This will allow the School Nurse to monitor and manage the student's seizure activity in accordance with your physician's orders.


If your child requires emergency medications to control or stop a seizure, please make sure the physician completes the appropriate section on the Seizure Action Plan and provide the student's medication to the School Nurse.  Expired medication will not be administered.
