Allergies and Celebrations

Nut allergies, especially peanut allergies, are very common. Students with these allergies cannot ingest or touch nuts. This includes peanut by-products like peanut oil. When these students ingest or come into contact with these products, they can experience minor rashes, severe breathing problems that resemble asthma attacks, or anaphylactic shock which requires immediate medication administered through an EPI Pen and a call to 911. In an effort to keep all of our students safe, we have the following procedures and reminders:

  • Students should pay attention to Nut Free tables and not eat at these tables if their snack contains nuts. If a child is unsure about their lunch or snack, teachers and staff will be available to help them.
  • Children will be asked to wash their hands when returning to class.
  • Children should not eat snacks with peanuts or other nuts in classrooms. Teachers and staff will be available to help.
  • Because of allergy concerns and to comply with federal regulations, any classroom celebration that includes food must meet the district guidelines regarding healthy snacks. 
  • All celebrations must be planned in advance with your child’s teacher.
  • Remember, sometimes the best gift you can give to a classroom is school supplies, stickers, a hands-on activity (craft, project, art, or a game) or a book for our library.

If you have any questions regarding procedures or snacks, please feel free to speak with your child’s teacher, the Health Office, or Mrs. Doose.

Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students safe and healthy!
