Back to School Checklist

  1. Verify everyone has a copy of your child’s 504/individualized education program (IEP) plan
  2. Meet with teacher/nurse/occupational therapist (OT) to discuss any classroom modifications
  3. Make sure your child has an up to date physical
  4. File an immunization medical exemption form (contact your district office)
  5. Get a note for any modifications (e.g. no contact sports) needed in physical education (PE)
  6. Have a doctor's orders for any medication given at school (e.g. when and how to administer prednisone)
  7. Ask to talk to your child’s class about FOP. Read FOP Talk for a great example of a classroom talk prepared by FOP mom Amanda Cali.
