Nut/Peanut Allergy Information

Allergies to nuts/peanuts and nut/peanut-containing products are on the rise. Crestview has established a policy and emergency plan for our affected students. Crestview has students and staff on a high level allergy spectrum. If exposed to even airborne pathogens, they may suffer a severe reaction resulting in possible anaphylaxis leading to loss of consciousness and even death without immediate medical assistance.
Crestview has an obligation to establish a safe environment for all students and staff. We are
requesting that parents consider not sending nuts/peanuts and nut/peanut containing products in
lunches or snacks.
We specifically ask that NO SNACKS WITH NUTS/PEANUT INGREDIENTS be brought for treats or
parties. Most pre-packaged snack foods will have warnings on the label stating if the product contains
nuts, peanuts or oils from nuts/peanuts or has the possibility of containing them.
Thank you for understanding this policy. Ultimately, it is for the health and safety of our school. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the principal, John Villotti or the school nurse.
