Have hemangoma. Have bulging enlarged veins in the forehead, Feels weak and looks pail. Recommendations?

I have a student that may have hemangoma. Doctors are still running tests to determine a definite diagnosis. She has bulging enlarged veins in the forehead. She often has episodes that cause seizure like symptoms. She turns pail, has weak mobility, and then cries. After these episodes that last about 30 seconds, she sleeps. Doctors are concerned with a hit to the veins being fatal. What recommendations would you have for a school environment to keep this child safe.
