New health policy being considered by OSB

January 14, 2014

A policy change being considered by the Oconee School Board of Trustees will enhance the safety of students with allergies who are at risk for anaphylactic shock. At last night’s work session Michael Thorsland, assistant superintendent for operations, introduced for consideration the idea of district schools stocking epinephrine dosage pens for use as required on students susceptible to the potentially-fatal anaphylactic shock resulting from allergies—often from insect bites. According to Thorsland, the change would allow school nurses, or someone trained by nurses, to administer the medication.
