Food Sharing and Birthdays

18 Sep

We would like to remind parents and guardians that we have a number of students and staff in our school that have life-threatening allergies.  We appreciate your support in working toward providing the safest environment for all of our staff and students.  Kindly read all labels to ensure that student snacks and lunches are free of nuts and nut products.  As well, in order to ensure the safety of students with severe allergies, Brownridge P. S. asks that no birthday treats are brought to school.  Similarly, students are not allowed to share their snacks or lunches.  We would respectfully remind parents that this also includes snacks brought in with the intention of sharing with a whole class to celebrate a birthday.  Our sincerest thanks in helping us minimize the possibility of students and staff coming into contact with possible allergens.
