From Carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA:

Are there any concerns, either medical (blood borne pathogens) or legal, which pertain to glucose testing in the classroom for a 10 year old? We desire to negotiate for "in classroom testing" for many reasons, rather than repeated trips to the nurses office. The child is on an insulin pump.


To help you in your arguments with the school, see Settlement Reached in Board of Education Lawsuit; School Children with Diabetes Nationwide May Benefit.
