Lenski is an allergy aware school. We work diligently with staff, parents and students to support those with food allergies. Parents of students with severe food allergies are asked to contact the school nurse consultant
Parents often ask about support for students with nut/peanut allergies:
- Parents, staff and students are asked to refrain from sending or eating peanuts or nuts or food items containing peanuts or nuts. This is particularly important for classroom snacks and activities that involve food.
- Parents are encouraged to look at our list of peanut/nut free snack ideas.
- Our cafeteria has four designated nut free tables and four tables for students who have peanuts or nuts in their lunch.
- School staff work with students to reinforce hand washing, not sharing food, checking food labels and asking an adult for help.
We appreciate everyone being vigilant in our combined efforts to keep children safe.
