1. Inform your child’s school of any food allergies. Be sure all staff members responsible for your child (classroom teacher, lunchroom staff, school nurse, etc.) are aware of their allergies and will help to ensure those foods are strictly avoided.
2. If your child has asthma, be sure to discuss your child’s asthma action plan with the school including when to administer fast-acting rescue inhaler and where the inhaler will be stored (for example, with the child or in the nurses’ office).
3. Have a robust communication plan for the school to reach you. Give the school several contact numbers and a good email address.
4. Have you updated your child’s physician contact information? If your child is a patient at Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center provide our contact information as well as that of your child’s primary care physician.
5. Plan for emergencies. Your plan should outline in a clear way how to manage symptoms in the event of anaphylaxis, asthma exacerbation, or other allergy emergency.
