Guidelines for Care of Students with Life-Threatening Food Allergies

http://www.k12.wa.us/HealthServices/pubdocs/GuidelinesCareStudentsAllergies.pdf

Excerpt:
A student with a life-threatening food allergy qualifies as a disabled student under Section 504, if in a licensed health care providerís assessment, the student is at risk of having a life-threatening (anaphylactic) reaction.

and

Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, students with life-threatening food allergies must be provided with the environmental accommodations and emergency school health services they need to safely attend school.

and

... as noted above under RCW 28A.210.370 students are entitled to have backup medication in a location to which the student has immediate access.

Note the form name to be filled out for LTFAs.
LIFE-THREATENING FOOD ALLERGY
LICENSED HEALTH PROFESSIONAL (LHP) ORDERS / NURSING CARE PLAN / 504 PLAN

One of the questions staff fill out after training regarding an affected student:
I know how Section 504 pertains to students with food allergies.
