Emergency Epinephrine Use

Public Act 14-176 requires the administration of epinephrine as emergency first aid to students experiencing allergic reactions, even if the student does not have parental authorization or the order of a qualified medical professional. In the absence of the school nurse, the administration of epinephrine may be done by qualified personnel who have completed required training. Please notify the school nurse in writing annually if you do not wish your child to receive epinephrine as emergency first aid by qualified personnel in the absence of a school nurse. 911 will be called if an EpiPen is administered.
