August 25, 2015


Dear Grazide Parents,


It is the philosophy of our school that the safety and well-being of all our children is a top priority.  This year there is a concern with a serious peanut allergy.  An affected child can experience a reaction merely by touching a peanut-containing food and/or inhaling airborne peanut protein particles.  A major health issue such as this must be taken very seriously; therefore, peanut products will no longer be sold nor served at our school.  Additionally, students may be asked to wash their hands with soap and water before entering their classrooms. 


We are asking our parent community to assist us in our efforts to keep our students safe by refraining from sending peanut products to school including peanut butter or products containing peanut flour or peanut oil for breakfast, snack, lunch, class parties, or school events.  An additional safety measure includes reading labels carefully to make sure products do not contain traces of peanuts/nuts or have been processed in a plant or equipment that process nuts.  Finally, please ensure that your child washes his/her hands with soap and water before leaving for school if he or she had peanut products for breakfast. 


Thank you, in advance, for understanding how important it is to keep our children healthy and safe by following these guidelines.  If you have any questions or concerns about these allergen-avoidance measures, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Wishing you and your family a safe and healthy school year.



Gloria Alderete
