11-Year-Old's Service Dog Banned From School

Eleven-year-old Madyson Siragusa's blood sugar level can go from good to dangerous within a 10-minute window because she suffers from type 1 diabetes. So you can imagine her parents' concern when the Rush Henrietta Central School District in New York refused to allow the girl's service dog in school, even though the dog helps to detect highs and lows in her blood sugar and helps her get to the nurse's office when there's cause for alarm.
