5/20/2019 - Wake County School Nurses Meeting:

Date: Monday, May 20, 2019

Location: Dorcas Ministries - 187 High House Rd, Cary, North Carolina 27511

Time: 6:15pm start (arrive up to 15min early to meet & greet)

Guest Speakers: Kelly Creech RN, Ashley Barbour, RN

Ashley Barbour and Kelly Creech RN, from Wake County Public Health Services have generously volunteered their time again to discuss the WCPSS IHP (INDIVIDUAL HEALTHCARE PLAN). We will discuss what strategies are in place to handle life threatening food allergies and minimize the possibility of any allergic reactions. They'll explain the 'process' and philosophy of what is expected of our children, the parents, and school personnel on a grade level. It's important to keep in mind you need to contact your school nurse to work on a personalized plan for your child. This is more of an overview of the process behind the plans and any major changes. Now is the time to call your school and work with your school nurse to plan for next year! For confidentiality purposes, no individual student issues will be addressed

Plans K-2nd grade have the same distribution of responsibilities, but in 3rd grade the plans change to reflect more personal responsibility of the student. If you have any questions that you would like to forward ahead of time, please send them to  

We hope to see you! Please be prompt, we will be starting on time.

Private peanut-free area located in Red Oak Roof Top in Right Field

Please join us for our yearly Peanut Controlled Durham Bulls Game! What does "Peanut Controlled" mean? NC FACES has a reserved covered section on the top level which is only for our members. It will be power washed and cleaned prior to the game. No peanuts or tree nuts are allowed in that section. Other ball park food is allowed, so please be mindful when eating - clean your spots, wipe hands etc.  They offer vegan burgers, vegetarian hotdogs, gluten free buns, other vegetarian options and they don’t cook any items in peanut oil (except Chick-fil-A sandwiches which are cooked off site) so they have options to help avoid common allergens. They understand that there are individuals that may have other severe allergies that they may not be able to offer items they could consume. You must show a medical note to security to bring safe outside food into the park.

Tickets are $12 each and you MUST purchase online via a link sent to our members (please join by contacting us.)

Purchase tickets by August 28.

Please let us know if you have any questions! Hope to see you there. Again, RSVPing via evite/facebook event/etc only lets others know you are planning to go, you must purchase tickets online. We have a block of 50 seats and can add more if needed.

What’s next

As a 100% volunteer support group, what we do going forward is entirely up to you. We normally do a Halloween food free event for our younger kids at the end of October, please do let us know if you’d like to help with this event. As always, please let us know how you would like to get involved!
