   Four-Legged “Student” of Honor Keeps Her Boy Safe
HSubmitted By Carla Squyers
offmann Elementary School registered a new type of “student” this year...the four-
legged type! Charlotte is a 10-month old Goldendoodle Service Dog for Carter, a second grade student at Hoffmann. Carter has Mitochondrial Disease, which means his body doesn’t produce enough energy for his organs to function properly. As a result, he suffers from frequent drops in blood sugars and increased levels of ketones.
 Charlotte is trained to detect when Carter’s blood sugar drops or his ketones go up and alert someone so that he can get proper treatment. She is an extra set of eyes on him to watch for subtle changes in his condition that even humans might not notice. Charlotte not only provides this incredible service but also acts as a source of comfort to Carter during his difficult medical journey.
The school and the family began preparing for a smooth transition several
  months before the first day of school. In addition to ensuring that district procedures were followed and parents were informed, all teachers were trained prior to the first day of school and the students in Carter’s classroom were trained on the first day of school. Carter’s mother feels that having
Charlotte at school with him gives the family a peace of mind that they wouldn’t have otherwise. As for the staff and students at Hoffmann, she has quickly become a member of our school family.
