Due to the life threatening nature of fish and nut allergies, no foods with fish, nuts, nut products, or nut warnings are allowed in the classroom. No home baked or baked items from a store or bakery are permitted in the classroom due to the risk of cross contamination of foods baked with nuts. Foods with nuts or nut products are allowed in the cafeteria for lunch because a nut free table is provided for children with nut allergies.
A medication administration form, as well as any appropriate health management forms, must be completed by the physician and signed by the parent for all students who need to receive medication at school. This includes any over the counter medications a student may need.
