Back to school with Tandem Diabetes Care
Beat the back-to-school jitters with resources for your school-care team.


School supplies? Check. Back-to-school clothes? Check. Diabetes resources for your school-care team? Check.

We’ve put together a useful reference sheet that you can provide to your school-care team. It contains important information to help them get comfortable with your child’s t:slim X2™ insulin pump and overall diabetes management.

Download the applicable PDF (either Control-IQ® technology or Basal-IQ® technology), complete the information, then email it to your school-care team. Or if you prefer a hard copy, simply print out the form. We recommend using a pen versus a No. 2 pencil, crayon, or finger paints.

It’s not just a pump. It’s a life-changer.

The t:simulator™ app lets your school-care team test drive the easy-to-use touchscreen interface of the t:slim X2 pump from their smartphone or tablet so they can get comfortable with how it all works.

Brooke and son

"The first time our son went to school, we had a big challenge training his teacher on how to operate his pump . . . I can’t help but think about how much the t:simulator app would have alleviated a lot of anxiety for all involved." -- Brooke Wheeler
