Mt. Vernon schools to stock epi pens

Mt. Vernon Schools plan to stock EpiPens

FORTVILLE — Epinephrine pens will be kept on hand in all Mt. Vernon school clinics in the upcoming school year.

The Mt. Vernon school board approved the policy change Monday.

The epinephrine is available in case a student or staff member has an allergic reaction to a bee sting or food but does not have a prescription pen on hand.

Greenfield-Central’s school board also recently approved an EpiPen policy.
