The Republic School District has a district-wide Epinephrine autoinjector Program and has been in existence since 1994. Each student-occupied building has stock epinephrine via auto-injector and the medication is located in each health office. These stock epinephrine auto-injectors are available in the event of a life-threatening allergic reaction by any student or adult. The District Health Services Department maintains and oversees this program.
If your child has a prescribed EpiPen, AuviQ or generic epinephrine autoinjector, please contact your school nurse for further information regarding self-administration/self-carry forms for this life-saving medication.
Any questions, please feel free to contact your child's building school health nurse or Natalie Botkin, Health Services & Wellness Program Coordinator.
