    For students who are transitioning to a new school, we ask that you update your child's Medical Statement form so that we have the most update to date information.  

    For students who have a Medical Statement/Medical Diet order on file and this form is over 2 years old or the information has changed, we also ask that you update this form with your child's medical provider.
