Back to School with Asthma

Parents and schools can be prepared to help their students with asthma using these resources:

  • Combined Asthma School Form: This form combines all of the forms you need to manage asthma at school. It serves as an asthma action plan, medication authorization, and self-administration form.
  • Asthma Self-Administration Form (Español): Students can carry and self-administer inhaled asthma medications at school. These forms provide the necessary written information to allow your student to carry an inhaler. See Utah's Inhaler Law (Utah Code Annotated UCA-53A11-602) for more details.
  • Asthma Action Plan (Español): Ask your doctor for a written Asthma Action Plan for the school. This plan should include asthma symptoms, triggers, medications, and emergency contact information.
  • Winning With Asthma: Invite athletic coaches and PE teachers to take this free 25-minute online program.

Air Quality Index

The air quality index (AQI) gives information on current and forecasted air quality conditions. The AQI will help you understand what your local air quality conditions are and what that means for your health.
