parent/guardian, student, school nurse, and a representative of the school administration must meet to review the plan.
The following need to be returned to the clinic no later than July 30, 2012
1. Allergy Action Plan (with required Physician signature) 2. Medication Permit Form (with required Physician signature) 3. Parent Waiver/Food Allergy Policy (food allergy only) 4. The required medication(s) named on the signed Medication Permit Form.
Any medication that your child may need to take as part of the Allergy Action Plan must be labeled with the child’s name and
brought by the parent to the clinic office no later than July 30, 2012. If a student’s medication is not in the clinic by
Wednesday, August 8, 2012, the student will not be allowed to attend classes.

If you choose to have your child carry his/her epi‐pen during school hours, the school must have written permission from your child’s physician stating that the child may carry his/her epi‐pen along with the signed Archdiocese of Atlanta Medication Permit Form.
Additionally, students who carry the epi‐pen on their person must have a second epi‐pen stored in the school clinic. If the child
self‐administers the epi‐pen, he/she must alert school personnel/the clinic immediately and 911 will be called.
A copy of the Archdiocesan Food Allergy Guidelines is enclosed. Per this policy, each student with a food allergy must have an
Allergy Action Plan on file with the clinic.
The school nurses appreciate your cooperation in supporting them to keep your child(ren) safe.
