Food allergies are serious business! Several students within LGSD have severe food allergies.
What does it mean if a child is allergic to nuts?
An allergy to tree nuts or peanuts can be life threatening. A food allergy is a disease not a choice. A child with a tree nut allergy can't eat or come into contact with any tree nut/peanut products. It is more than just not liking nuts. If a child with a severe allergy accidentally eats a tree nut or peanut, then they could break out in a rash, have swelling of the face and airways, or could stop breathing. In extreme cases and without medical care, a severe food allergy can be deadly.
Samples of Tree Nuts: almond; Brazil nut; cashew; chestnut; filbert/hazelnut; macadamia nut; pecan; pine nut (pignolia nut); pistachio; walnut. Did you know that a peanut is NOT a tree nut?
Peanuts: Students can also have a severe allergy to peanuts. Peanuts grow under the ground and are a part of the legume family.
What is a Peanut/Tree Nut Safe Campus and how can I help?
LGSD wants to provide a safe place for all students to go to school. We have made the following changes to keep students with a peanut/tree nut allergy safe:
Remember: "Be a PAL!" - Protect A Life
There's a very strong correlation between good attendance and success in school. On the other hand, students who regularly miss school are also more likely to struggle in school.
Missed days add up quickly: Just two days a month puts a child's success in jeopardy because students fall behind and disconnect. By third grade, it gets much more difficult to catch up. Students who regularly miss school can quickly feel hopeless, and returning becomes harder and harder.
The reasons for chronic absenteeism are understandable but they must be addressed. Troubleshooting issues that are keeping a student away from school can make a difference immediately and for the long term. Students with solid attendance are much more likely to be successful during school and after graduation.
Even at the elementary level, regular and consistent attendance is crucial! Island City School is asking families to Make An Attendance Pledge Today! For more information, please go to www.Every-Day-Matters.org
