Does your child have a serious, potentially life-threatening allergy? In order to be best prepared to care for your child during the school day in the event of a life-threatening allergic reaction, it is our policy that we have the emergency medications and paperwork in place.
Students who have been properly instructed and deemed capable of self-administration, may now carry a single dose of antihistamine with them as well as the epinephrine auto-injector.
Your child's healthcare provider needs to complete the Emergency Action Plan (pdf)
and Self Medication Release Form (pdf)
. These forms need to be completed and submitted annually to the school nurse. It is the parent's responsibility to provide the emergency non-expired medications (antihistamines and EPI-PEN's) to the school each year.
