SISD Unassigned EpiPens

School Year 2022-2023


Re: Unassigned EpiPen Auto Injector Policy


Dear Sanger ISD Parent/Guardian,


In accordance with the Education Code 38.208 EpiPen Auto Injectors, Sanger ISD will maintain a stock supply of EpiPens in each school. The school nurses and other designated school personnel will have the authority to administer the EpiPen to any student or other individual on school premises whom they believe in good faith is experiencing anaphylaxis.


The EpiPen is an auto-injector prefilled with epinephrine which is the drug of choice for the emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) to insect stings or bites, foods, drugs, and other allergens.  


School nurses and designated school personnel will be assigned and trained on the proper technique of EpiPen administration.


Protocol requires that any time an EpiPen is administered; the individual must be transported via ambulance to the Emergency Room.


If your child has been diagnosed with an allergy/health condition that requires the use of an EpiPen, it is your responsibility to provide your child’s EpiPen to the school nurse on or before the first day of class along with medical orders.  Please contact your campus nurse to discuss a plan of care for your student.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
