That seems so very, very strange.
Really? Every school that I looked into has very strict policies on possession of medication as well as self medicating.
Not in my part of the Great White North.. :cwds:
This is not the case in several states. Texas is one such state, as is California and Illinois -- and there are other I am sure.
Students with diabetes can treat themselves anywhere on campus -- testing, giving insulin, and eating.
This may not be true in your state.
My son (7th grade) still has to go to the nurse once a day to "check in" with her. He does it right before lunch, writes down his # and boluses with his pump right there. It's a total waste of time IMO but we're taking baby steps. He is the first student that is allowed to test in class, if you can believe that.
Her school never gave me the option for this.
I just got back from her 504 meeting and they are allowing her to carry everything with her from now on. I am so happy this all worked out!!!!!
Yay! I'm so glad everything turned out well!
That's great news!
