pHi everyone,/p
p I want to apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed. I've never seen the "search" button some of you have referred to and I've read all the posts on this page and didn't see this topic./p
p If you allow your child to ride the school bus, what type of precautions did you take? Does your school have some sort of policy concerning bus drivers and medical issues? Does your child ride a special bus? Is there an aide on your child's bus? How did you educate the bus driver/ aide?/p
p If your child does not ride the school bus is it because of his/her allergy?/p
p I plan to drive my son to kindergarten next year. I'm curious how you have handled to transportation issue. /p
p Thank-you, /p
p Victoria/p

vic,
If you haven't already seen it, I found a related thread and brought it up for you here, under Schools. I hope it helps you. (Transportation to School and Epi-pen availability)

Vic, I have had a very positive experience with our bus driver. Initially when I contacted our Director of Transportation, I did encounter some resistance, but they left it up to the bus co. and driver. Well, the driver has ben great. She learned how to use the epi and watched FAAN's videos. The school district has a "no eating on the bus" policy and I implemented an emergency plan for my daughter. The driver calls me if she is going to be off. She really watches out for my daughter.
