Due to the increasing prevalence of food allergies and their life threatening nature, there is a new statewide Food Allergy Management Program.
The goal of this program is to:
- Identify students with food allergies
- Prevent exposure to known allergens
- Respond to allergic reactions with prompt recognition of symptoms and treatment
While it is not possible for the school to completely eliminate the risks of exposure to allergens when a student is at school, this program using a cooperative effort among students, families, staff and students will help the school to reduce these risks and provide accommodations and proper treatment.
If you specified on your Health History Form, at registration, that your child has a known food allergy, you should have received an Allergy History Form sent out prior to winter break. Please be sure to completely fill out this form and provide us with the necessary Emergency Action Plan signed by a doctor as well as any prescribed medication A.S.A.P. It is imperative that we have all necessary authorizations and documentation to assure that in case of a crisis, we can give your child the best care possible.
If your child does have a known food allergy,
and you did not receive this form,
please notify the office A.S.A.P.
