School policy of CPR- trained individual to administer Epi-pen
Hello. I just want to vent my concerns regarding my 7 yr old son, EP, who is in the 2nd grade at a unified school district.
My son has section 504 designation and the school has made accomodations for him since he was in kindergarten. Now, after a meeting with the vice-principal, I was told that EPI-PEN must be administered by a CPR- trained individual per policy. I did not know that and was not told by the school for the past 2 years. The School nurse is only available 1 day every-other week, and the school aide is available everyday between 10:00am-1:00 pm.
Since no one else is CPR-trained, how is my child protected under 504?
I will aggressively pursue this matter with the school district until we are satisfied with the school's accomodations for my son's safety.
Anybody else with this situation? I appreciate your feedback. Many Thanks. MP
