Hi Folks:

I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction. Our child is at a point that playing school sports is now a new and exciting option; and will need to travel on the school bus to and from school events.

We need to update the plan and are only looking to address the bus piece with the school. It seems to be a no brainer, no food on the bus!

Could anyone please let me know if they have addressed this issue in their child's 504 plan and would you be willing be to share it with us. Thank you in advance for any input.

We aren't traveling yet for sports but my kids take the bus to school and our plan states.
1. no food on bus
2. bus driver is not to pass out candy, treats etcf.
3. a specific plan in event of reaction ie bus driver will administer epi pen, call 911, etc.
You want to make sure you have a plan in the event of a reaction AND if your child is old enough--he should be self carrying and maybe the coach should too. You want to make sure there is an available EpiPen on hand. It's up to you whether you think your child is responsible enough to remember. But everyone needs to know what their jobs are and what the expectations are. :)
Hope that helps!
