Asthma 411 Mission
Azle ISD has entered into a partnership with Cook Children's, JPS and UNTHSC to participate in Asthma 411.
This program allows Azle ISD nurses to administer emergency albuterol to those students experiencing an asthma emergency and do not have medication available on campus. This allows immediate treatment for a student that may have previously required the time and expense of a 911 medical call from the school to transport for treatment , or a parent taking to emergency room for treatment.
If a student is experiencing an asthma emergency, a phone call will be made to the parent, message left if they can't be reached and emergency albuterol will be administered. The nurse will determine if the parent needs to pick up the student, they need further emergency care or the student can safely return class.
