Should I tell my child's school about rhinitis?

It may be beneficial to your child's health and education for you to tell his or her school about rhinitis. For instance, if your child's rhinitis is triggered by specific allergens or irritants, it might be possible for your child's school environment to be adjusted to avoid them. If your child needs rhinitis medication during school hours, the school nurse may be able to help. Rhinitis can sometimes keep children home from school as well, so informing the school about absences is helpful for attendance records and schoolwork make-up.
