    Dear Parents,

    We ask your help in providing a safe environment for students in our school who have severe food allergies. There are certain foods that more commonly cause severe allergic reactions for some individuals. Those foods include:  foods containing peanut and/or tree nut (walnut, pecan, cashew), egg, fish/shellfish, soy, dairy, and wheat.  Peanut/nut allergies are among the most common life-threatening allergies, especially in children. If your child eats peanut or tree nut products before school, please have him/her wash hands before departing for school.  

    If your child has peanut butter, Nutella, or other peanut/nut products in his/her bag lunch, please reinforce the importance of hand washing after lunch.

    Please avoid sending snacks/treats that have peanuts, peanut products, or tree nuts in them for your child to eat in the classroom.  

    In order to help promote all students’ health, as well as providing a safe environment for our students with food sensitivities, elementary school guidelines state:  “If you wish to bring something to share with classmates for a birthday celebration, please limit it to a nonfood acknowledgement. Donation examples include but are not limited to: student’s favorite book to the class collection, have a special “guest reader” read a book to the class, stickers, pencils, pens, markers, erasers, a board game to the class for indoor recess days, etc.”

    Thank you for your assistance.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call.

    PTA  PTA Reminder
    The first PTA meeting for this year will be held on Tuesday, September 13 at 6:00 pm in the IMC.  Day care is provided.  We encourage all parents and teachers to attend.
    Also, remember to turn in your student's t-shirt order by September 12 to their classroom teacher. 


    A visitor screening system helps track visitors and volunteers at each school, providing a

    safe and monitored environment for students and staff. When parents come to pickup

    their child(ren), or visitors check in, they will be asked to present a valid state issued

    ID for entering into the system.
