While it is not possible for the District to completely eliminate the risks of exposure to allergens when students come to school, a cooperative effort among students’ families, staff members, and students helps the District reduce these risks and provide accommodations and proper treatment for allergic reactions.
The District has procedures in place to:
1. Identify students with allergies
2. Work with the students, parents, and staff to put reasonable measures in place to prevent
exposure for students with allergies. These measures will differ depending on the type of
allergy, severity of allergy, age of student, and other factors.
3. Train staff to recognize and respond to allergic reactions
The District has also established the following general measures regarding nuts:
1. The District does not knowingly serve any items in our elementary or junior high cafeterias
that contain nuts.
2. The District does not allow teachers to bring in snack items for students which contain nuts.
The District does not monitor or limit the types of foods parents provide in home-packed school lunches, unless this is part of a plan developed for an individual student with the cooperation of a specific group of classmates and their parents (a “peanut-free table” for example).
