Medical Info. for Teachers ??

  1. Hi All,
    Another quick question for you !
    Do you let all staff know of any medical concerns regarding all students ?
    Diabetes, Seizures, Allergies, Asthma, etc ??? What about bus drivers ?
    With HIPAA and FERPA, I never know what is allowed.

    Thanks !
