Sanofi US is voluntarily recalling all Auvi‑Q® (epinephrine injection, USP). The recall involves all Auvi‑Q currently on the market and includes both the 0.15 mg and 0.3 mg strengths for hospitals, retailers, and consumers. This includes lot number 2299596 through 3037230, which expire March 2016 through December 2016. The products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage delivery.
Expect a call from your school if your child uses Auvi-Q.
Please note that all schools in District 135 follow a policy regarding food for snacks and classroom parties. Please visit the food service page for details.
Administration of Medication
Medication can be administered only with a signed physician's order, which is part of the District 135 medication form and can be obtained in the nurse's office, or downloaded from the health forms webpage. The Illinois Food Allergy Emergency Action Plan and Treatment Authorization form can also be obtained in the nurse's office or downloaded to the right. This policy is inclusive of both prescription and over the counter medications. Medications must be brought to school by the parent or guardian in the original, properly labeled container. For more information on our district's policy for medication administration in the schools please visit Board Policy 714 Administration of Medication to Students.
Asthma Action Plan
Illinois Public Act 099-0843 requires schools to request from parents of students with asthma an Asthma Action Plan (AAP). A sample Asthma Action Plan is provided here for your primary care provider to complete. Please return the completed Asthma Action Plan to your child’s school nurse annually.
