Heloise Lorimer – Peanut Aware

Allergy Information

Heloise Lorimer is a "Nut Aware" school as we have students in attendance who have potentially life-threatening peanut and/or nut allergies.  As a result, we ask for your cooperation in making Heloise Lorimer as PEANUT-FREE and NUT-FREE as possible.

You can help minimize the risk to these students by not sending peanut-butter sandwiches or products containing nuts or peanuts to school.  Some of the common products to avoid are: granola bars, cookies or chocolate containing nuts or peanuts, peanut butter cups, Reese's pieces.

In classrooms where there are students with an identified nut allergy, students who bring peanut or nut products to school will be asked to choose a friend and then eat at a designated table outside of the classroom. This will enable us to clean any surfaces that have come into contact with a peanut product and will also help us to decrease the risk of cross contamination. We do not want to create a stigma about students with allergies or students who eat peanut products. Please talk to your child about some of the serious implications of eating peanut products in the classroom.
