Dear Parent / Guardian:

This letter is to inform you that students in your child's school has severe food allergies to: PEANUTS.  Exposure to these allergens could cause a life-threatening reaction.

It is our goal to ensure that every student in our school is safe. Our school policy for managing students with food allergies is:

1.     To notify parents/guardians in writing if their child has a classmate with severe food allergies and

2.      To avoid foods that contain the allergen for birthday celebrations, school functions and fundraisers.

Because these students cannot be in contact with foods containing this allergen, we are requesting that you not send these foods to school for snacks or treats. Even trace amounts of these allergens could result in a severe allergic reaction. Please Note: Sometimes these elements may be hidden in processed foods, and some foods are processed in plants that contain peanuts.

Please discuss the following with your child:

1.     Do not offer, share, or exchange any foods with other students at school.

2.     If your child rides the bus, remind her/him that there is a "no eating on the bus" policy.

Thank you for your consideration and help in this matter. Please call if you have any questions or concerns.
