There is increasing frequency and intensity of allergic reactions that impact students in the educational environment. Parents of a student with a life-threatening allergy must provide the school with documentation from a licensed healthcare provider. This information should include the specific allergy and medical requirements needed for the student. Staff who will work in partnership with the parents to develop an emergency medical plan may include but are not limited to the principal, school nurse, student’s teachers, after school care coordinator, First Aid Response teams and the cafeteria manager if appropriate. The school system takes seriously its responsibility to take reasonable steps to protect the safety of its students. The goal is to increase awareness & communication, to prevent possible exposure to identified allergens, and to create an emergency procedure for allergic reactions.
