What is Peanut Allergy Aware?

Several of our students have a severe allergy to peanuts/tree nuts. This allergy can be life-threatening and for these students strict avoidance is the only way to prevent an allergic reaction. Accidental contact or ingestion can be fatal.

Are peanut/tree nut products allowed in school?

Yes. However, in order to reduce the risk of exposure for students who possess an allergy to peanut products, these items are not sold in the school lunch program, at extracurricular events or school sponsored activities.
