January is Blood Donor Month and Karen Seifert from Life Share presented on the importance of blood donation.

The new stock EPIPEN program was discussed. The Mylan group EpiPen for schools program provided our district with 6 EpiPens and 6 EpiPen Jrs, 3 EpiPen lockers and an instructional video for staff. These EpiPens can be used for any student having an anaphylactic reaction without prior knowledge of food or other allergies. Dr. Groom at The DeKalb Physicians clinic has been working with us to get all of the paperwork and needed orders for this program.

Anyone that would like to set up a booth at the fair can confirm with the school nurse via email or telephone. So far we have Spirit of St Michaels, TxDOT, LifeNet, Maximus, DSHS, AFD, and ETCADA.
