In accordance with the new policy from the archdiocese, the following policy will be put into effect for the 2019-2020 school year.
Snacks or treats sent for sharing, such as birthday and classroom party snacks must be in individually pre-packaged wrappers with the ingredients listed. These snacks must be peanut-free/ dairy-free for classrooms that are peanut/ dairy-free. Home-baked food items are not allowed.
Most food labels will say if it contains peanuts or dairy. Snacks that are made in a peanut facility are not allowed as well.
I know this will be an adjustment. This policy means that store-bought cupcakes, donuts, cookies, cookie cakes, etc. are not allowed anymore as well as homemade treats. Please contact the school nurse if you have any questions about whether a food is allowed or not. Thank you for helping in the implementation of this policy.
Below is a list of some approved foods that are peanut-free. This list is just some suggestions. Please read the labels to make sure they avoid snacks that contain peanuts or made in a facility with peanuts. Please make sure they are in individual bags.
