Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act

The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to store supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for students with allergic reactions. Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide Epi-pens for their children. These students will continue to have Allergy Emergency Action Plans/IHP developed by the school nurse. All school personnel are annually trained on the recognition of severe allergic responses and how to use epinephrine auto-injectors.

If your child has a severe food allergy and requires a food alternative or substitution, please contact your school nurse to schedule an appointment.
