Food Allergies & Asthma

Specific contact information for your particular child's school nurse can be found in the staff directory.

Food Allergies


Please contact the school nurse immediately if your child is diagnosed with a food allergy, particularly one that is serious enough to require medication (such as a peanut allergy). For more information regarding Food Allergies visit Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) website.

Epi-Pen Training Power Point (PPT) is also a useful document.

Asthma


Asthma is a chronic health condition that affects a person's lungs and their ability to breath. If your child has asthma, please consider completing an Asthma Action Plan form (PDF) with your child's doctor and providing the school nurse with a copy. This plan will remain on file in the health office and will be shared with staff on a need-to-know basis. Asthma Action forms are very important resources for the nurse to have in the event of an emergency or if your child develops an urgent asthma need during school hours. This form should be updated each school year. To take the online Asthma Control Test (ACT), go to www.asthmacontrol.com to find out what your child's score is and to obtain information that can be printed out and shared with your child's doctor.
