Students with Allergies

Communication

Families of students with health needs due to allergies should communicate with Nurse Amy as soon as possible. Nurse Amy will set up a care plan for your student and educate staff on the care plan and the student’s allergy needs.

Health Policies

  • Cedar Park encourages families to only send nut-free foods to school with their children for lunch or snack and to only donate nut-free items to school events. 
  • The need or viability of specific allergen-free classrooms or lunch tables will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. 
  • Teachers will teach their students about any special allergy needs that are in their classroom and will monitor allergen proximity during snack and lunch. 
  • Epi-Pens and other medication will be stored in the Nurse‚Äôs office, along with care plan and instructions. Faculty are trained annually on the use of epi-pens and other medication.
