Allergies | Nut-Aware School
We believe separating children with food allergies instills a false sense of safety for the child, parents and supervisors alike. The varieties of food choices available make it impossible for specific foods to be eliminated or controlled in our lunchroom setting.
Students, taking into account their individual abilities, are responsible for developing skills at managing their personal allergy awareness. This is often accomplished by simply not sharing food with others and asking, “Does this contain _______?”
Staff are responsible for being aware of allergy information provided to the school by parents. Staff will make reasonable accommodations for students with allergies. The school does not ban particular foods from the school. If you have specific questions about our allergy procedures please contact your child’s teacher for classroom questions and the main office for lunchroom or school-wide concerns.
Our student health form asks parents if their children have any health concerns (such as exercise or spring induced asthma) or food allergies that we need to be made aware of. Special Allergy/Concern lists are compiled and every supervisor has access to these lists at all times. We make special note of those particular medications supplied by the parent. Any conditions related to outdoor activities should also be reported (i.e. grass, bee sting allergies). When required, separate forms for administering medication will be sent home.
Parents or guardians requesting school assistance with their child’s medical needs are required to complete the following forms.
Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form
- This form is to be used when there is a student health issue requiring attention. This includes when there is a request to administer medication.
Student Health Plan
This form is to be:
- completed if a physical or medical condition may affect the student’s attendance at school
- completed if medication is to be taken at school
- reviewed and updated annually or sooner if there is a change in the student’s health concern or school registration.
Public Health Nurse
A Public Health Nurse is assigned to the school to assist in meeting the health needs of students and families in the community. If you would like to contact the Public Health Nurse, you may leave a message at the school or at 403-943-9100.
