REMINDER: WE ARE NUT FREE AT
FREEDOM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
We have a significant number of students at Freedom Elementary School with
allergies to nuts. Some of these students do not have to consume them to have a
reaction. They can react from being in close proximity to the allergen. Their reaction
can be life threatening. We are aware that this is a challenge when preparing snacks and lunches,
but we need to keep Freedom Elementary a safe place for all students.
It is important to read the labels of the snacks you
are sending. A lot of products are made on the same assembly line as items that
have nuts. You will see a note by the ingredient list that states “made with items
that may contain nuts”. These items are not okay to send with your child. Another
thing to remember is that coconut is not allowed either. Coconut is classified
as a fruit, however most children with nut allergies are also highly allergic to
coconut. You can find a list of items that are safe to send on our website at
www.freedomschools.k12.wi.us. Thank you for taking this seriously so we can all
have a safe environment to learn!
