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:
If you have any questions regarding procedures or snacks, please feel free to speak with your child’s teacher, the Health Office, or Mr. Legg.
Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students safe and healthy!
