Midvale Elementary teachers and staff recently saved the life of a student who experienced an anaphylactic reaction after eating kiwi a fruit the student didn’t know she couldn’t eat without suffering serious allegeries.
To laud those quick actions, Canyons District’s Nursing Services Department has awarded its first-ever CSD Above and Beyond Award to the school’s faculty and education support professionals. Midvale employees received the award, the nurses said, “for their quick and appropriate” responses on that day. The nurses plan to make it an annual award for school staff and faculty who go above and beyond in promoting student health and safety.
