Altadore Edible Garden Development


Severe Allergies and Vulnerable Students

We have a number of students with severe, life-threatening allergies and others who are vulnerable to various situations.

  • Only send lunches, snacks and special treats that are peanut and tree-nut free.
  • Remind students that sharing of snacks or food from lunches is not permitted, including Halloween treats.

If your child is vulnerable please inform the school and complete the
Student Medical forms in Forms You Need.


Parents of children with allergies are asked to provide an epi-pen or Allerject auto-injector to be kept in the office. Parents wishing their child to carry an auto-injector in the studentís backpack are welcome to do so, along with one kept in the office.
