Overview

Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.  Common examples of triggers include foods, latex, insects and medication.  Exposure can lead to various symptoms which may include difficulty breathing, hives, difficulty swallowing or a dangerous drop in blood pressure and shock.

We ask that our parents/guardians partner with us to ensure we have an updated form for new and returning students. Once identified, the campus nurse will make contact with the student’s parent/guardian to discuss an Allergy Action Plan that must be completed and signed by the student’s parent/guardian and physician. This plan outlines possible triggers and the proper emergency response for your student.

All staff members on campus are trained yearly to recognize a severe allergic reaction and are familiar with emergency procedures. Designated campus staff members are trained on proper administration of rescue medications.

While, 艾美影库 艾美影库 cannot guarantee an allergy-free environment at school, we have developed guidelines to manage students with these life threatening allergies so that they may safely participate in the educational process.
