Allergy Letter

posted Aug 19, 2013, 7:02 AM by Cathy Wolinsky-YES   [ updated Sep 16, 2016, 5:10 AM by Rowe School ]

Dear Parents,

Each year we have several children in our school with allergies.  Some allergies are mild, while some are life threatening.  For the health and safety of all children, we are requesting your assistance in the following ways.

If your child is in a classroom with another child with peanut/nut allergies, the classroom teacher will be asking you to avoid sending such snacks with your child.  You may need to read snack labels to determine whether it contains peanut/nut products.

There will be several tables in our cafeteria that are peanut/nut-free.  Several tables will also be available where children will sit if they have a lunch containing peanut/nut products.  Each table will be clearly marked with pictures, and teachers will review the seating options with children.  It would be most helpful to us if you told your child in the morning if the lunch has peanuts/nuts in it. 

Please have a discussion with your child about not swapping food with other children.  Classroom teachers will also review this rule with children.   

We also request that food not be sent in to celebrate your child’s birthday.  Each teacher will honor your child’s special day with a classroom celebration that will not involve food.  There will be times throughout the year when we will celebrate with healthy snacks, but we have made a school decision to eliminate food for birthdays.  We thank you in advance for respecting this request.  We honor the District Wellness Policy that encourages healthy snacks and nutrition.

We thank you for your part in helping to keep our children healthy and safe.
