sc brd dk wst
The board of education met at DeKalb West School Thursday.
Members of the board of education voted Monday evening to approve the use of EpiPen kits to be used at the five county schools, as well as for sports teams to take to road games. The EpiPen kits contain a dose of Epinephrine, a synthetic version of adrenaline used to treat allergic reactions. National food allergy guidelines name Epinephrine as the only recommended first line of treatment for anaphylaxis.
