Our district, consistent with national trends, continues to see an increase in the prevalence of students with life threatening food allergies. The focus of our allergy management continues to be prevention, education, awareness, communication and emergency response.
As you may know, our District continues to review and update our Allergy Policy and Regulation (5403) and the Wellness Policy and Regulation (5402) to assure that they appropriately provide for the safety of our children. A copy of these District policies and the regulations are available on the District’s website (www.tesd.net).
T/E Middle School follows the procedures outlined below:
· All foods sent in for school sponsored activities or celebrations should be commercially prepared with a full preprinted label listing ingredients. Sugary foods should be limited.
· In-school birthday celebrations are discouraged.
· Only Mylar balloons may be used for locker decorating and school events.
STUDENTS WHO HAVE LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES NEED ALL OF US TO KEEP THEM SAFE
