I would provide the school district with copies of the AAAAI Position Paper 36 regarding the accessibility and adminisration of epinephrine in day care and school settings. This is available at [url="http://aaaai.org/."]http://aaaai.org/.[/url] I would also get your state education and health departments involved.

Yes, a great link!!! It can also be found by accessing this link: [url="http://www.aaaai.org/members/academynews/1998/10/positionstatement.stm"]http://www.aaaai.org/members/academynews/1998/10/positionstatement.stm[/url]
scrolling down to the bottom, and clicking the "view" statement.
the link I just posted sorta comments on the position statement.
As I eluded to in a previous thread, I think it would behoove us to read position statements as I feel they outline what our expectations of certain individuals should be. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out exactly what is expected of many individuals. I think it would also be interesting to read job descriptions of those who we trust our childrens' safety to. Of course, job descriptions do not ensure safety, but they do list expectations now, [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Folks...sometimes you have to get very creative to get things done.
For example, the snow was not being removed in front of my daughter's Catholic elementary school. The snow was shoved in the middle of the street making it hard for school buses to go around the corner to pick up students and hard for parents to navigate to pick up their students after school. Students were falling trying to cross the street to get to their parents car.
I called the city adminstrator's office and told him all the snow in the downtown area had been removed except for the two blocks in front of the school. I also was concerned about fire protection and emergency medical care. He hemmed and hawed...then he got on this tangent about the school not paying property taxes (right, as if the public schools did.) I basically told him to sit on because all the Catholics in the city were paying property taxes.
Then I told him I had videotaped a school bus losing control going around a corner and students falling down trying to get through the snow to the other side of the street and if it wasn't removed by 7 a.m. the next day...I was taking it to a Des Moines television station.
(I did have videotape, too)
It got taken care of!!!! I called the principal the next day and told him he would not be having any further trouble getting that snow removed. I told him what I did and he had a good belly laugh. He told me he had been fighting with them for years about it!
It was always removed after that!
