The school must ensure the safety of all its students. At times, we must ask parent and student cooperation to make sure potentially life threatening items are not brought into school. For this reason, as noted in the section entitled “Food in Classrooms” we have limited the food items which are found in classrooms.
Due to an increase in the number and severity of allergies in the school, parents may receive a letter at the beginning of the year informing them of food items which cannot be sent into the room for snacks. For instance, an increasing number of students have severe allergies to nut products. We therefore discourage the use of nuts in schools and will make parents aware of those classrooms where nut products are not allowed. Your cooperation for the safety of the children is appreciated.
