Ok...I took a little bit of info. from a few other 504 Plan's listed here and from other research online and this is what I've come up with. My son is going into his first year of preschool. I'd love some advice, suggestions, opinions, etc. I've had my first 504 meeting with the school in May and "most" of this was discussed and agreed on but..when I got my 504 letter in the mail, none of it was in writing. So, I am having another meeting with the school and I'm going to bring this (some things revised, changed, etc). Thanks to everyone who has posted their 504 Plans and for everyone who has offered some great info. on getting your child ready to start school!

HI - I am also a mom of a 3 year old PA child who will be going to preschool for his second year. I did some precautionary measures last year, but feel I need to be more things in writing this year. I love your plan and will be adapting it for my school. It is very thourough and I love the idea of putting your child's picture on the emergency plan.
In one section you say you are going to include "directions for the Epipen" in his Medicine Kit. Could you please write down your directions for me. I am always confused at how to put that in words. And could you also let me know what 3 books you are going to send to the classroom. Thank you so much for your information. I know school is very stressful but you are doing all you can to make it safe. Thanks again!

Hi! I'm glad that you found the plan useful..like I wrote, I've been gathering alot of it from on here from other parents, articles, etc. I will be bringing this to the school on Tuesday to see what they think.
The directions for the Epipen that I mentioned is just the directions that come in the box when you purchase an Epipen. On his Emergency Action Plan (that I'm still working on) I do want to include my own directions. Not exactly sure how I'll be wording them either.
The 3 books are:
A preschoolers guide to peanut allergy by Lauri Habkirk (ordered from Amizon Books- you can click on link from Peanutallergy.com main page)
No nuts for me by Aaron Zevy (also from Amizon)
A Special Day at School by Anne Munoz-Furlong (I ordered from the FAAN website)
They are all great books and I think the kids will really be able to understand them. How did your son make out in his first year of preschool~any problems?
Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your response. My son's first year at preschool was, thank goodness, non-eventful when it came to food. We purposefully choose a preschool that did not serve lunch. Ours only went from 9 - noon. However, they did get a snack during that time. Thank goodness I had a great teacher and very understanding parents. Everyone really pitched in to keep my son safe. One thing I always did was to have my cell phone with me at all times. If my teacher ever had a question during the day, she would always call. Hope your child has a great year and thanks for the help on the plan!

Hi! Very happy to hear that your son's first year in pre-school went so well and so safe!! My son will be in school from 12-3:00 with snacktime. I can only hope that I will get a bunch of understanding parents that are willing to help keep him safe! I wrote a letter that I'd like the school to send out to the parents; I'll be showing it to the Coordinator on Tuesday. Then Orientation is 8/27, which I'll be able to talk face-to-face to all the parents and explain my son's PA to them. I "hope" they try to understand and know how serious it is. Let me know how you make out with your son's 504 Plan. What state are you in? Great talking to you, it always helps to talk with someone who can relate to exactly what you are dealing with. :-)

Hi! I live in Charlotte, NC. I hope all goes well at your orientation. I was lucky last year that things went so well, especially due to the fact that I had nothing in writing. I think you are so smart to have all your ducks in a row before your child even starts school. This year I will be doing the same thing. You can never be careful enough with your child's life at stake. Take care!
