EpiPens - Where kept?
My son is just starting K at the end of the month. I started planning & working with the Principal & nurse last winter. Well, here it is 2 weeks away and I'm waffling on what to do. Should the epipens be carried with him from room to room in some kind of pouch or envelop or should they be kept at the nurses and principals offices which are centrally located? Initially, I wanted the epipens with him at all times, but now I'm re-thinking that. I'm afraid that the pouch will be forgotten and left in his homeroom much of the time, which I think would be worse than always knowing it is in the office. The school is fairly small, all on one floor, with the office in the center section. I'd just like to know what others have chosen to do.
