Food and Allergy Safety


With the prevalence of nut allergies, many schools opt to go nut-free. Review your child's school rules regarding food and nut allergies before school starts, and know what foods are banned from her classroom.

If your child has a food or nut allergy, talk to her teacher before the first day of school so she knows what to do in case of an allergic reaction, and make sure the school has any medications your child might need. Use this printable medical dispensation form to give your child's school permission to administer the medication if needed.
