The children will be on holiday from Monday 12th October until their return on Tuesday 20th October. I hope that you and your families have a safe and healthy break.
As we have several pupils and staff within our school who have severe nut allergies, we would be grateful if you could ensure that all snacks and packed lunches sent into school do not contain any products containing nuts (eg. Nutella, hazelnut chocolate spread, M& M’s, Reese’s Pieces etc).
Exposure to nut contamination can occur when a person handles nuts or nut products as the residual dust/oil can remain on skin for several hours after. Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction to a trigger such as an nut allergy.
As part of the LPS Community, your co-operation with this matter is much appreciated.
