Food Allergies

There are a number of student in our school who are severely allergic to certain foods and substances. We need to work together to make sure that our students stay safe and healthy. 

Common food allergens include: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. 

In order to keep all students safe, foods containing nuts can only be consumed in the APR. 

Please refer to the approved food list for class parties, only foods on this list may be brought in. All foods brought in for class parties must be checked by a nurse for approval. If your food item is not approved that nurse will return the food item to you to take home. If you have any questions please contact me.
