• Life Threatening Asthma or Allergic Reactions
    Forsyth County Schools has partnered with the District 2 Health Organization to implement a program for the emergency response to life-threatening asthma or systemic allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).  More than 20% of children have their first life-threatening allergic reaction at school.  School staff members are trained to assess the clinical signs, call 911, and administer the medication (the ephinephrine injection or the nebulized bronchiodialator).  The student must be transported to the nearest emergency room for evaluation and treatment.
