Asthma Action Plan, Medication Authorization and Self-Administration Form (Combined Asthma School Form) This link takes you to the Utah School Nurses Guidelines page with both English and Spanish combined asthma school forms available. 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.

Recess Guidance for Schools

The Utah Recess Guidance is a tool for determining when to hold recess indoors due to poor air quality. The Guidance provides recommendations for recess based off PM2.5 levels reported by the Department of Environmental Quality.

We encourage schools in these counties to use the Recess Guidance and DEQ website to determine recess. Ultimately, the final decision on when to hold indoor recess is made by the schools. Below are some steps for implementing the Recess Guidance. Find more school resources here.
