Many children suffer allergic reactions to insect stings and various foods. Allergic reactions are not normally harmful, but severe allergies may cause an anaphylactic reaction. The school nurse is committed to working closely with parents and health care providers in order to properly manage this condition and ensure the child's safety and well-being while at school. Children who have been diagnosed with severe allergies are required to have an Allergy-Anaphylaxis Action Plan completed each school year. If a child is able to self-administer medication, an Asthma-Anaphylaxis Self Administration form is also required.
