Allergies

PeanutManaging a child's allergies is a team effort, involving you, your child, your child's healthcare providers and the school. All members of the team want to be able to communicate, ask questions, and share information about your child's health and well-being.  

Please complete this Family Food Allergy Health History Form for your school nurse.  This allergy history form only needs to be completed one time, or as your child’s allergies change.  

Middle and high school students may self-carry their emergency medications without a physician order or self-carry contract in place. Parents will simply need to notify the health office at their school that the student will be carrying emergency medication. 

If your elementary student will need emergency medication at school, please have your healthcare provider complete the Colorado Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan and Medication Orders. This form requires physician and parent completion each school year.

If your elementary student will be carrying and self-administering their emergency medications, please complete this Permission to Self-Carry Contract with your student.  This contract must be updated each school year.

If your student purchase or receives a school lunch, we are able to accommodate food allergies.  Please visit the Weld Re-4 Nutrition Services Department web page for guidance.
