IMPORTANT - Peanut Allergies at Prescott

Some of our students at Prescott have life-threatening allergies to peanutsThe only way to ensure a safe environment for these children is to make our school PEANUT-AWARE. To do this we need everyone's cooperation.

How can we ensure the safety of all of our students?

  • Please do not send any peanut products to school.  

  • Please check the ingredients of all foods your children bring to school.

In a classroom setting, cross-contamination is the greatest risk from this type of allergy.

Cross-contamination can occur when a few crumbs from one child's snack are dropped and then picked-up by an allergic child.  

Another safety concern is when a student with peanut butter residue on their hands may touch a book, iPAD, or a ball and unknowingly spread the residue to a child with severe allergy. 

With your co-operation we can minimize the risk of an allergic reaction and keep our students safe.

Thank you for your attention to this important safety matter!

Note:

Our procedure is in accordance with Parkland School Division Administrative Procedure AP 319– Life Threatening Allergies.
