Anaphylaxis is a severe and sometimes sudden allergic reaction. It occurs when a person is exposed to an allergen. Anaphylaxis is potentially life threatening and always requires an emergency response.

Schools use the Anaphylaxis Procedures for Schools and information on the department's student health web pages when planning to meet the health care needs of students diagnosed at risk of anaphylaxis.

In addition, the Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management within the Curriculum P-12 Proceudres apply to all curriculum and extra curricular actvities.
