Allergy Guidelines

The Catherine Cook School is committed to responsibly limiting a student’s risk of exposure to foods to which he or she is allergic by responsibly limiting potential food allergens that may come into the school.

Items containing peanuts, walnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, other tree nuts, or any known food allergen should not be brought on school grounds for any project, for any fieldtrip, for any event, for any reason, at any time, by any individual adult or child.

Keeping students with food allergies safe requires the education and cooperation of the entire community. It is critically important that each student with allergies, his or her parents/guardians, the faculty, the staff, food service providers, other students, their parents/guardians, and guests all fulfill their respective responsibilities. If you have any questions, please contact the School Nurse at ext. 2150 or nurse@ccookschool.org.

If a child possesses a serious risk of allergic reaction through ingestion of any known allergen, parents and guardians must notify the school nurse at nurse@ccookschool.org.
