DGH endeavours to be a “Peanut Safe School.” We encourage all parents to NOT send food containing peanut, peanut products, or tree nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, etc…) to school. DGH currently has students attending the school who are highly allergic to nuts and nut products.
Should a student mistakenly/accidentally bring a food item to school that contains or has come into contact with nuts, they will be asked to place the item back in their lunch bag. Should the student absolutely need to eat that food item, they may do so in the office.
We recognize that it can be an inconvenience not being able to send peanut butter sandwiches or products containing nuts to school, however, we would all agree that if it was our child who had a life-threatening allergy we would want everything reasonably possible done to keep him or her safe.
Should you have any questions regarding our Peanut and Tree Nut Safe School Policy, feel free to contact the school’s office.
