Allergy & Asthma

Severe allergies and asthma are potentially life-threatening conditions.  If your student has a severe allergy or severe asthma requiring medication at school, contact your school nurse. Classroom and school site precautions or accommodations can be developed in concert with the school nurse in an Individualized Health Care Plan. 


All school sites have stock Epipens on hand to respond to anaphylaxis in persons who do not have an Epipen on site or who have not been previously diagnosed with an allergy. 


Severe Allergy

If your child has a severe food allergy or bee sting allergy you will be asked to bring an Epipen to the school office along with the Allergy Action Plan and Medication Authorization Form.  These forms must be signed by you and your child's doctor and renewed every year.  If your child may require an Individualized Health Care Plan for precautions and accommodations in the classroom, contact the school nurse.

In 2015, DJUSD issued the Food Allergy School Brochure-English Food Allergy School Brochure-Spanish as a resource for students and parents.

If your child requires an inhaler at school for prophylaxis before exercise or for treatment of asthma symptoms please bring the inhaler to the school office along with the Asthma Action Plan and the Medication Authorization Form.  These forms must be signed by you and your child's doctor and renewed every year.  Your child may carry the inhaler with him/her if they are able to safely self-administer the medication.  Forms are still required when your child carries the inhaler.
