Severe Allergies

Students who have been diagnosed by a physician with severe food or life-threatening allergies need special considerations to help ensure their health and safety in school. We have a wide range of supports for students in kindergarten through grade 12 including:

  1. Registered nurses in each building who are knowledgeable in preventing and managing allergic reactions

  2. Comprehensive procedures for administering prescribed medications in school and on field trips

  3. Training, books and teaching materials for school personnel on prevention and intervention activities

  4. Staff training in epi-pen administration

If your child is diagnosed with a severe allergy:

  1. Contact your building principal or school nurse upon enrollment.
