Back to school with allergies
Make your child’s teacher, school nurse, and front office staff aware of your child’s allergy diagnosis and symptoms, and provide them with our phone number (541-HUG-KIDS or 541-484-5437).
Children with allergy eyes may benefit from having eye drops at school. Those children, as well as those diagnosed with “allergy nose,” will be more comfortable if they take Zyrtec or Claritin before leaving home.
For children with food allergies, provide a Food Allergy Action Plan and an Epi-Pen, along with written instructions – at least two adults at the school should know how and when to use the Epi-Pen.
