Bromwell Elementary recognizes that food allergies can be life threatening. The risk of accidental exposure to foods can be significantly reduced by working with students, parents, health care providers, and school staff to minimize unnecessary exposures and provide a safe environment for our students. Denver Public Schools’ allergy policy outlines four major requirements set forth by the Board. They include: a health care plan, reasonable accommodations, access to emergency medications, and staff training.
Bromwell Elementary is committed to implementing these policies. Bromwell has initiated additional interventions to protect and empower our students with food allergies. Bromwell believes in a real world approach to managing food allergies, which will help students thrive in society at large. The goal is to equip all students with the most effective way of being a “PAL” (Protect a Life):
Students are each other’s first line of defense. By educating students and staff on primary prevention methods and the signs of an allergic reaction, we can create a safe environment for everyone; those with known allergies, and those with undiscovered allergies. In an effort to increase awareness, Bromwell Elementary will hold an annual “Be a PAL” campaign before every Halloween and will hold semiannual principal coffees that focus on health related issues in the school.
Our school nurse, Brooke Goudy, will meet with all classrooms to discuss allergies and the five main ways in which everyone in the school can Be a PAL and Protect a Life:
Nurse Goudy is working to make Bromwell’s existing policy of protecting kids with food allergies even stronger by taking additional steps such as making the sign for the allergy table in the cafeteria more prominent, working closely with the cafeteria manager, and placing a list of epinephrine-trained staff at both the allergy table as well as on her office door. Nurse Goudy is available to respond to any questions or concerns at Brooke_Goudy@dpsk12.org.
