Welcome back to students and families of Glen Orchard Public School. We are all excited for Tuesday when we will see friendly student faces again and meet students who are new to our community.
There is a student in our school who has a severe allergy to fish and shell fish. Even exposure to a tiny amount of this item (airborne or skin contact) could be potentially serious and life threatening.
We can all play a role in preventing such a dangerous and frightening situation at school. The specific child and his family must take responsibility to avoid exposure. However, staff, other students and their families can also help to make the school environment safer.
Your assistance is needed to please avoid sending any and all fish or shellfish products to school and to teach your child how serious this situation is to discourage teasing of this student.
We appreciate your kind cooperation in this matter.
