  • health
    Current law (SB 1266; BP/AR 5141.21) now requires schools to provide emergency epinephrine for individuals who may be experiencing anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction which can occur after exposed to an allergen, an insect sting or even (rare) after exercise.
    Without immediate administration of epinephrine and summoning Emergency Medical Services (911), death could occur. Certain individuals may experience anaphylaxis that have no known previous history of an allergy and therefore, may not have their own prescription. A school staff member will administer this emergency injection to any student believed to be suffering from anaphylaxis and activate Emergency Management Services (911). Parent will be notified of the emergency and action taken. 
    IF YOU DO NOT WANT your child to receive the emergency epinephrine injection, please NOTIFY THE SCHOOL IN WRITING.
