We celebrate successes, triumphs, and valiant efforts on a daily basis in our class! However, I appreciate that families might want to make a special day, well, extra special. In order to protect students who have allergies (and others who may not know they have them) against potential allergens, we have a schoolwide food policy.
The school nurse should be made aware of any food related celebration in the classroom at least 2 weeks prior to an event. The nurse also needs a list of foods and ingredients so she can discuss it with the parents of the children with identified food allergies/intolerances.
