In our household, as in many others with a child who has diabetes, there are additional preparations taking place:
- Writing a letter to the new class teacher (here, every year the kids get mixed up between the classes and they get a new teacher too),
- Updating diabetes school management plan,
- Packing fresh supplies into the hypo kits for the school bag, classroom and the office,
- Making sure all the spares for blood glucose meter, pump, infusion set and emergency glucagon are packed to be handed in to the school’s office.
