Snack and Treats for Students
We are asking that all parents please refrain from bringing in eatable snacks and treats for all students in the classrooms. Several students in our school suffer from a severe food allergy to all nuts, peanuts and all nut products. There is also a Ministry PPM where the purpose of this memorandum is to set out nutrition standards for food and beverages in publicly funded elementary schools in Ontario. For more information about the new PPM please visit: http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/healthyschools/anaphylaxis.html If you would still like to do something special for the classroom, a small non-eatable gift for each student or perhaps a classroom gift, i.e. Board game for inclement recess, may be other great alternatives. Again, we thank you for your co-operation.
