NUT ALLERGY

As we discussed last night, one of the students in our classroom has a severe peanut/nut allergy. Strict avoidance of peanut/nut products is the only way to prevent a life threatening allergic reaction. We are asking your assistance in providing the student with a safe learning environment. If exposed to peanuts/nuts, the student may develop a life-threatening allergic reaction which requires emergency medical treatment. To reduce the risk of exposure for the child, the classroom will be peanut/nut free. Please do not send any peanut or nut containing products for your child to eat during snack in the classroom. Any exposure to peanuts or nuts through contact or ingestion can cause a severe reaction. If your child has eaten peanut or nut products prior to coming to school, please be sure your child's hands have been thoroughly washed before coming to school.  In addition, please refrain from sending any peanut or nut products for your child to eat during lunch.  Please get in touch with me before sending any food in for the class to enjoy (this includes birthday treats and holiday class party treats).

Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring a safe environment for our kindergarten friend!!!

                                   

Please LABEL EVERYTHING (especially the sweatshirts) with your child's name.

TEXTBOOKS AND WORKBOOKS 

The school administration and the classroom teachers are aware of parental concerns regarding heavy backpacks.  We are making efforts to coordinate the home use of the heavier textbooks as well as workbooks in case a replacement is needed.  One option for parents is to purchase books to keep at home.  Some websites that sell new and used books are Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Ecampus.
