Anaphylaxis Emergency Action Plan
All students at risk of Anaphylaxis are required to have an Emergency Action Plan completed and on file at the school. Parent/guardian and physician signatures are required. This Action Plan remains valid throughout the student’s time in our schools UNLESS there is a change to the student’s condition.
The Emergency Action Plans are to be uploaded to MyEd as a PDF so they remain connected to the student as they transition to middle/secondary. If Administrative staff requires information on how to upload a PDF follow this link
