Nut Safe School
Staff at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Academy are always concerned about the health and safety of our students. It is our practice to be a nut safe school. Within our school there are several students who have potentially life-threatening allergy (anaphylaxis) to foods, predominantly to peanuts and nuts. Our school has anaphylaxis plans in place to help us provide an “allergy-safe” environment for children at risk of anaphylaxis.
In order to reduce the risk of accidental exposure, we ask respectfully that families cooperate by enjoying peanut/nut products at home (please do not send them to school). Such things would include almonds, pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts, and chestnuts.
Your assistance and understanding of this matter is appreciated.
