We have a new 1st grader entering school next week and her dad wants her to have a rescue inhaler in the nurse's office as well as in his classroom and with the PE teacher. His Dr. indicated on the medical form that he is NOT self directed. Her dad's note says she can self adminster, that the nurse must accompany him on all field trips but that she does not need to see the nurse to administer her inhaler.
I've never had a parent request an inhaler in the classroom or with the PE teacher and my room is close to the 1st grade room. It seems to me that dad thinks I don't need to be there yet he wants it written that I am required to go on all field trips. At this time the student does not have a 504 but that may be coming.
I'm hoping for some info on what you do for your students, especially younger elementary kids regarding inhalers, who has them, who can administer them and who goes on field trips with asthmatic students?
