|Peanut/Tree Nut Allergies|
|Contact Donna O’Connor, Nurse/Health Services Administrator, at 456-9317 or donna.o’email@example.com for more information on health and safety topics or if you have any questions/concerns.|
|In accordance with the General Laws of Rhode Island, all school districts must have a policy and protocols designed to provide a safe environment for students with peanut/tree nut allergies, including the development of an individual health care plan and an emergency health care plan for each student with a peanut/tree nut allergy. Depending on the nature and extent of the student’s peanut/tree nut allergy, the individual health care plan may call for the following measures to be taken in the school:|
|Posting of signs in the school; the prohibition of the sale of particular food items in the school; the designation of special tables in the cafeteria; all individual health care and emergency health care plans must be developed collaboratively and be signed by the student’s parents/guardians, school nurse, the student’s health care provider, and the student (if appropriate).|
Parents and Guardians: It is important that you immediately notify your child’s principal if your child has a known allergy to peanuts or tree nuts.
