From Clio, South Carolina, USA:

Does my daughter have to leave the classroom to have her snack?


The school may have rules about students eating in class. So, the best way to work within these rules is to have a 504 plan in place with the school which clearly mentions how hypoglycemia treatment and routine snacks are to be handled. You should have a discussion with the school nurse, teachers, and perhaps principal to come to an agreement about how to handle snacks.
