PEANUT AWARENESS AND OTHER ALLERGENS
We have a number of children in our school who have severe life threatening allergic reactions to peanuts, peanut butter, peanut oils and any peanaut by-products. Some students are allergic to latex. Please do not send lunches or snacks that contain peanut products. Other life threatening allergens may include allergies to eggs, dairy and flour products, seame seeds and types of seafood if ingested by a student. A letter will be sent out from individual classroom teachers if there are students with allergies and to advise parents to take the necessary precautions. Your support will be appreciated.
LUNCH TIME FOR STUDENTS-LEAVING SCHOOL GROUNDS
The school lunch hour is 11:15am-12:15pm. When children stay for lunch, they will eat with their classmates and remain on school property throughout the lunch period. Supervision is prvided by staff and a lunch supervisor. For safety reasons, students either stay for lunch or they leave for lunch everyday. Changes to this routine are done only with written permission by a parent-guardian. Students are not allowed to call home to go out for lunch. The office is very busy at this time and phones are needed for office communication and emergency phone calls. Parents accept responsibility for conduct, safety and the well being of students when they are given permission to leave school property. We thank you for continuing to support this safety routine.
