Returning to school can be fun for children and parents, but it is important to remember that common health problems such as allergies and asthma can interrupt that fun and interfere with the learning process. It is estimated that 9 million children suffer from allergies and asthma. Symptoms can range from a minor inconvenience to serious health issues which can result in missed school days and expensive medical bills.

It is important for students and their families to be proactive in dealing with allergies and asthma as we head into another school year. Look through the following checklist to see if you are prepared.

  • If your child requires an epinephrine auto-injector or inhaler, be sure to bring it in to the school nurse and complete the necessary forms so the medication is available when needed.
  • Contact your school nurse and food services staff regarding food allergies.
  • Keep all emergency information up-to-date.
  • Be sure your child is taking all their medication as prescribed.
  • Review all allergy and asthma triggers, and discuss how some triggers might be avoided.
  • Call the school if your child is absent due to allergy or asthma symptoms.
  • Continue to educate yourself regarding how to best care for your child.

 

The School Nurses had a team participate in the annual Community Quiz Bowl on March 21st. Fun and fellowship was had by all as we supported the Warsaw Education Foundation in this important fundraising event.
