SRV Health & Safety News


Health Notes from our School Nurse

According to The Food Allergy Research and Education organization (FARE), food allergy is a serious and potentially life-threatening medical condition affecting up to 15 million Americans. One in every 13 children has a food allergy-that's about 2 in every U.S. classroom. And every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room.

In the U.S., the eight most common food allergens are milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish.  Food allergy may occur in response to any food, and some people are allergic to more than one food. Food allergies may start in childhood or as an adult.

All food allergies have one thing in common: They are potentially serious. Always take food allergies-and the people who live with them-seriously.
Food allergy reactions can vary unpredictably from mild to severe. Mild food allergy reactions may involve only a few hives or minor abdominal pain, though some food allergy reactions progress to severe anaphylaxis with low blood pressure and loss of consciousness.

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that comes on quickly and may cause death. Early use of an epinephrine auto-injector is the primary treatment for anaphylaxis. Antihistamines can help relieve some mild symptoms from an allergic reaction, such as an itchy mouth or hives, they cannot stop the life-threatening symptoms of anaphylaxis.

Challenge Success Parent Night

Heading
Date: 01/10/2019 (Thu.)
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Location: SRVHS Library

When we are focused too narrowly on grades and performance, we deny our children the time and energy they need to tackle the demanding work of growing up. In this presentation, parents will explore recent research on topics including homework, sleep, cheating, technology use, academic engagement, and more. Parents will also explore concrete strategies to help reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement, and to support their children's resilience, creativity, and well-being.

This interactive workshop for  San Ramon Valley High School parents includes a PowerPoint presentation, coupled with opportunities for personal reflection, audience participation, and brief discussion activities. Parents will leave with practical strategies to put into practice at home and at school.
