Food Allergies

  • Huntsville ISD Nursing Department provides nursing services that promotes students ability to learn. Our goals are to:

    • Assist students in learning how to take care of their health.
    • Ensure a safe environment.
    • Promote good control of a student’s health condition so they are ready to learn.

    Food allergies can affect a student’s ability to learn if they are not under good control. As a reminder, each year we need to have the following information for your child:

    • Written food allergy action plan from your health care provider.
    • Signed authorization by parent/guardian for medication and treatment at school.

    In addition, adequate supplies, as listed in the student’s asthma action plan, must be provided at school:

    • Medication, such as antihistamines, with physician’s order or dispensing.
    • Emergency Medications (Epi-Pen).

    We look forward to helping your child with food allergies be successful in school. Please feel free to contact your child’s school nurse with any questions or concerns.
