Allergies

  • Students with allergies that require medication at school or the omission of certain food products while at school require a doctor’s note indicating exact steps school personnel should take to ensure the student is not exposed to an allergen.

Allergies Requiring the Use of Epi-Pens

  • The administration of epinephrine can be delegated to an unlicensed staff member. Personnel are taught the signs to watch for to identify an anaphylactic reaction.

    It is not necessary for a nurse to accompany a student with an epi-pen on a field trip.
