Guidelines for Students with Life-Threatening Allergies
Life-threatening allergies and the incidence of anaphylactic shock seem to be on the rise. We have prepared these guidelines as an overview of how life-threatening allergies should be addressed in the Central Valley schools. It lists a variety of resources and suggests how staff can work together with students and parents to create a safe and healthy environment in our school district. Each situation is unique and needs to be addressed with a team approach.
Washington state law (RCW 28A.210.320), requires that all student with life threatening health conditions have the needed medical orders, medication/equipment and a nursing care plan in place before the child may attend school.
Any comments, ideas, or feedback may be directed to your building principal or the School Nurse Specialist for the district, Cheryl Sampson, at 228-5522.
Each building in the district has been provided with a manual that covers all of the guidelines. A Parent Packet is available for pick-up in each of the buildings that includes the overall guidelines and a variety of useful forms and information.
