Allergies

  • Each classroom is labeled with allergy alert signs. Please be aware of the food sensitivities of your child's classmates when sending food items.
  • An "allergy aware" sign indicates these foods can not be shared by classmates.
  • If there is an anaphylactic allergy through touch and/or smell a red "alert" notice is posted on the "allergy aware" sign.
  • If you are ever in doubt please question the classroom teacher or ask at the office. The safety of our students is always our priority.
