My 5 year old is in kindergarten. I let myself be talked out of a 504 plan at the beginning of the year since the school assured me they "would do whatever we wanted." I gave the school written information including when to test,pump directions, CGM instructions, peanut allergy/epi pen directions, etc. The school has a health department nurse who is there once a week, and a secretary that takes care of the day to day treatments. It started out rocky. The nurse said my info wasn't good enough and insisted on rewriting it in the school format. We had a big blow up, because she gave the wrong directions for the pump, told staff to adjust insulin dosages and said if he was having an allergic reaction to just give him benadryl instead of the epi-pen. We had multiple meetings with the principal to resolve this. So now, we are fairly happy with most things. The secretary does a great job taking care of him and the nurse stays far away if she sees me coming. My sticking point is that he has to walk to the clinic to be checked every time. This is the way all the other type ones do it. There are 7, but Tyler is the youngest. They send him with a friend to the clinic. His classroom is the furthest away. He has been having issues with stubborn lows,so there have been times he has been to the clinic at least 6 times.we are working on this! He always goes before lunch, before afternoon snack and before the bus. He is getting very frustrated leaving class so much. He hates to miss anything, and is starting to complain. He is smart, and I am afraid he will start clearing his alarms so he doesn't need to leave. Our social worker at the endo's office feels we do need the 504, and with our permission is contacting the school. I am totally lost on what I should require. I know they will try to talk us out of it again, and will try to offer the least amount of accommodations that they can. Am I out of line to insist on someone walking to his room to check him when he is low? I don't really have an issue if he walks at normal times or when high. Can anyone offer me some advice? I want to be well armed so I don't back down! I also have huge issues with the school using candy and food as rewards and incentives. But that is more from the peanut allergy standpoint and not a diabetes issue. Thanks!
