Saint John XXIII School is a nut-aware environment. This school policy is in place to provide a safe environment for our children and staff who have life-threatening allergies to nuts and nut products. We ask parents to monitor this closely with your children as you prepare snacks and lunches to be brought to school. In the event that a nut product is brought to school, noon supervisors have been instructed to replace the product with a nutritional nut-free snack and to send a note and the snack back home to remind parents to please choose nut free snacks. When bringing classroom treats, please call the teacher to inquire about other food allergies which may cause a severe anaphylactic reaction.
