Anaphylaxis is a sudden, life threatening, severe allergic reaction. The most dangerous symptoms include breathing difficulties, a drop in blood pressure or shock. While Klein ISD cannot guarantee an allergy-free environment at school, the district is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the safety of every child who has allergies. Campuses do not have an emergency supply of epinephrine or antihistamine available to them; therefore each student is responsible for having their own prescription medication. To ensure student safety, Parents/Guardians are required to bring the medication and necessary forms to the school clinic and conference with the nurse. Students who are at risk for developing anaphylaxis are entitled to carry and self-administer their anaphylaxis medications (epinephrine auto-injectors) while at school or a school event, if they have met the legal requirements below:

 • The medication and the self-administration must be authorized by a licensed health care provider and documented on the KISD Permission to Carry Anaphylaxis Auto Injector form.
• The student must demonstrate to the licensed health care provider and to the school nurse the skill level necessary to self-administer the medication.
• The student must have a current Allergy Action plan on file with the School Nurse.


Allergy Action Plan

If your child has a life threatening food , insect , or environmental allergy, please contact the clinic so that we, along with your child's physician, can develop a plan to keep your child safe and healthy at school. You may download these forms to take to the Dr and return them to the school nurse , along with any medication that is needed.
