We ask students, parents and visitors to please refrain from wearing scented personal products, heavy detergents and no perfume or cologne (during your interview time and) any time you visit us.

-Restrict all kiwi fruit in the
Nut and Sesame Allergy
Here are the risk reduction strategies as outlined by our Eastern Health Pediatrics and Allergy Consultant:
- Restrict all nut and nut-containing products where a student has a peanut
- Products that state “may contain” are safe for children without the allergy to
consume in school.
All other food allergies
Restrict sharing/trading of foods, food utensils and food containers.
Anaphylaxis management is a shared responsibility that includes educating families and
children with allergies on self-management, ensuring that we have policies and plans in
place to respond to an anaphylactic emergency, and creating anaphylaxis awareness in the
broader school community.
