How allergy aware is your school?
On a scale of 1 (being not at all) to 5 (being the best) how would you rate your school?

Our local school, according to the other family that has a child with severe allergies, is great, but had no real official plan until I helped them create on earlier this Spring, as my daughter starts Kindergarten there in Sept. So far, the principal has been mostly great and very accommodating, and I've been lucky that there is a staff member there who is extremely knowledgeable on allergies and very helpful. The public health nurse has been helpful so far as well, and we'll see how the staff training goes in September.

I'm fairy happy so far - there have been a few hiccups, but this is all new to them, so it's to be expected. I'll have more to report on this in a few months' time, I'm sure. Keeping my fingers crossed that the other parents are OK with the changes.

Alison's Mom- Have you looked into the Anaphylaxis Protection Order?
http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/legislation/s ... pdates.htm
I think it's the 7 or 8th item down.

Education Minister Shirley Bond issued this Ministerial Order in September of 2007.
Quote:
“Children with life-threatening allergies need to be safe in B.C. schools, and our direction today is for all school districts to take immediate steps to ensure all students are protected,” said Bond. “Boards of education will now be required to have school-based anaphylaxis policies and practices that meet rigorous provincial standards.”
