Allergy Awareness

At Glenmeadows School, we are committed to encouraging healthy food choices. As a result, candy, highly sugary foods including pop, should be left for home consumption. We encourage students and parents to make healthy snack and lunch choices each day. More information is on the CBE Website Healthy Eating page..

We must energetically support safety for our significant number of students who live with food allergies and intolerances. As a result, we ask that students NOT bring nuts nor food that contain nuts. For health reasons, it is important that you support our message of not sharing food. We ask that families do not send birthday cakes or sugary snacks to school. Should you wish to bring special evets snacks, please speak with your teacher before hand. When this occurs, teachers will notify you and ensure that the focus is on healthy choices and that every child can participate in some way. Thank you for working with us to ensure “healthy bodies and healthy minds.”
