Food Allergies and Special Days
Special days like birthdays, Valentines, Easter and end-of-the-year parties are examples of celebrations with friends and food. However, since there are students in our school with life-threatening food allergies these students are especially at risk during these times. You can help to keep allergic students safe by celebrating with stickers, games or prizes instead of food. However, accepting “class treats” such as cupcakes from parents, for all of the students in a class, is an individual teacher's decision. Therefore, it is essential that you contact your child's teacher prior to bringing food of any kind to the classroom.
Finally, for children in all of our classes, we ask that you do not send any Valentine candies or other edible treats to school for children to share with others on Valentines.
