Dist. 186 Working to Refine Epi-pens Policy

District 186 plans to keep a supply of devices on hand to administer a dose of a potentially life-saving drug if a student has a serious allergic reaction.


The board passed a policy last year allowing the use of “epi-pens” by nurses or other staffers in an emergency, but had not acquired any yet.


The district will now seek grants to pay for a supply of the pens.


Some board members still have questions about the policy and procedures for using the devices… but board member Scott McFarland says the bottom line is that if a student is having a life-threatening allergic reaction, he’ll use the epi-pen, regardless of the policy.
