Medical - Epi Pen Info

California law now requires all public schools to stock epinephrine auto-injectors (epiPens) in the event an undiagnosed anaphylactic reaction were to occur in a student or staff member while on a school campus.  BUSD has epiPens at all school sites in our district.  SB 1266, states that school nurses or trained school personnel may administer an epiPen to a student who is suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering from an anaphylactic reaction. Students  with a “known” allergy diagnosis potentially requiring an epiPen are still required to bring a physician signed medical authorization and epi-pen to school at the beginning of each school year.
