Having a seizure at school can be a frightening experience, both for the one experiencing the seizure and for other students. Seizures don't have to be frightening however. A well-informed teacher and a supportive school nurse and school administrator can help to minimize fear and anxiety. Parents of students who are prone to seizures should consult with their child's doctor to complete a Seizure Action Plan prior to the start of school. In addition, if a child may require emergency seizure medication, parents should provide that medication to the school nurse at the beginning of the school year. Parents/guardians of students with a seizure disorder are urged to meet with the School Nurse at the beginning of the school year.
