Allergies

Managing a child's allergies is a team effort, involving you, your child, your child's healthcare providers and the school. All members of the team want to be able to communicate, ask questions, and share information about your child's health and well-being.  Please complete this Family Food Allergy Health History Form for your school nurse.  This allergy history form only needs to be completed one time, or as your child’s allergies change. Please notify the Health Office to discuss whether your student will need to have accommodations in the lunchroom related to their food allergy.

Middle and high school students may self-carry their emergency medications without a healthcare provider order or self-carry contract in place. Parents will simply need to notify the health office that the student will be carrying an emergency medication.

If your elementary student will need emergency medications at school, please have your healthcare provider complete the Colorado Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan and Medication Orders. This form requires physician and parent completion each school year.

If you would like your elementary student to carry and self-administer their their emergency medication, please complete this Permission to Self-Carry Contract with your student. Your healthcare provider will need to indicate permission to self-carry on the order form. Prior to being authorized to self-carry at school, this contract will need to be reviewed and signed by the School RN Consultant. This contract must be updated each school year.
