District 186 Debates Epi-Pens Costs

The Springfield School Board wants more study before deciding whether to equip schools with “epi-pens” that could save a student’s life in the case of severe allergic shock.


A recent state law allows schools to keep a supply of the pens on hand and to administer them when a nurse determines that it’s necessary.


Previously, the pens could only be given to students who had already been diagnosed with allergies and who supplied their own “epi-pens” to the school.


Board members expressed concerns about the cost of stocking the devices and about what rules and procedures would need to be developed for their use.
