We are a peanut and nut free school. If your child has any dietary needs please inform the main office during registration and the classroom teacher on the first day of school. Please provide any doctor’s form detailing the allergy.  Our nut-free policy includes all* tree nuts.  In order to ensure the safety of all children, please adhere to this school-wide policy, refraining from all nut products. Some nut alternatives are peanut butter or almond butter including sunflower seed spread (sun butter) or soy nut butter, as neither contain nuts. 

For pre-packaged lunches like  Lunchables, any candy, gum, or nut products must be removed prior to sending lunch to school.

*all tree nuts including peanuts, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, and walnuts
