Meeting with Parent scheduled yearly to develop a plan to accommodate the child’s needs. (The school should make every effort to schedule the meeting as early as possible so the plan and accommodations can be put in place, but definitely prior to Open House).
Parent provides documentation from Physician on severity each school year
School Nurse will provide Parent with a Severe Allergy Emergency Action Plan to complete.Once completed, the school nurse will provide copies to those in the school on a need to know basis. (Teachers, Bus driver, Office staff, First Responders, etc)
Parent will provide emergency medication with orders from the Physician.
The School Nurse and Principal will make sure that at least 2 people in the school are trained to give emergency medications.These medications should be stored in a readily accessible, unlocked area.The names of those trained to give the medication and the signs and symptoms of Anaphylaxis should also be posted.
Parent will decide which of the following accommodations their child will need:
Allergy signs placed at entrance to the school and the student’s classroom
Everyone in the classroom should wash their hands before and after eating
A table will be designated in the cafeteria and posted that it is free of the food allergen.This table should remain free of the food allergen at all times (not just for a particular class)
Students with severe allergies are not to be assigned as table washers
Rewards should be something other than food (ex. pencils, erasers, etc)
Arts and Crafts projects should be free of the food allergen
Awareness letter sent home with elementary classmates of student with severe food allergy
The parent of a child with a severe food allergy should be given prior notice of all parties and/or special events that will have food.All food brought to school to be shared with others should be commercially prepared (ex. Food Lion, Harris Teeter, etc) and ingredients listed on the package.If unsure whether the student should eat a certain food, contact the parent.If unable to reach the parent, the child should not be allowed to eat it.
