If a student has an allergy, the parent/guardian needs to complete some forms and return them to the school. This information helps FCPS staff determine how best to help your student during the school day. Details will be distributed to appropriate personnel on a need-to-know basis and might include bus drivers, substitute teachers, cafeteria staff and others who work with your student daily.
Always let the school know of any changes in your student's medical condition or emergency phone numbers.
If daily medication, EpiPens, inhalers, Diastat, or Glucagon are to be taken on a field trip, a trained FCPS staff member must accompany the student if a parent/guardian is not available to attend. Daily medication and emergency medication administration trainings are offered at the beginning of the school year and are good for one academic year.
