If your child requires Benadryl or other medication in addition to the his/her epipen, the school is required to have a separate form signed by both you and the physician authorizing school personnel to administer the medication and giving exact dosage information. A measuring utensil must be included to ensure correct dosage is given.

- Medication Authorization Form (must be signed by both you and the child’s physician; a separate form is required for each medication)
- Emergency Care Plan (must be signed by both you and your child’s physician)
Finally, if your child’s allergy is food-related, you will be required to provide “safe” foods and snacks for your child to eat. Due to the proliferation of ambiguous language such as “processed in a facility that handles peanuts and tree nuts” on food labels, it is not possible for teachers to make informed decisions about what is and is not safe for children with food allergies to eat. Only you, the parents, in consultation with your child’s physician can make that choice for your child. Please work with the teachers to help them keep your child safe by providing the foods you approve of for your child. If you have any questions, please speak with your child’s teacher or with the Director, Siobhan Powers.
In order for the LPA to be successful, we know that the support and involvement of the parents of our students will be of utmost importance. As a parent, your first opportunity to show your support will be to volunteer for one of the LPA positions available. If you would be interested in volunteering for one of these positions, please contact Kimberly Swabsin.
The second way you can show your support is to participate in the numerous events and programs that we have planned throughout the year. Your participation might be that of a committee member, volunteer, or as an attendee. Whatever level of participation you choose, your time and involvement is much appreciated.
