Over the next few weeks, I am visiting all Armstrong classes to talk about allergies. Since many of our students have allergies, it becomes the responsibility of the entire Armstrong community to help keep those students safe.
As part of our lesson, I am taking time to explain allergies, including the causes and symptoms of an allergic reaction. Students are learning that people can be allergic to a range of things, including pollen, insect stings, and foods like milk, eggs, and nuts, and can become very sick if they have an allergic reaction.
Here at Armstrong, we need everyone’s help to keep students with allergies safe. There are three important things each of our students can do to. They are:
- Please don’t share food
- Always wash your hands after eating, especially if you have eaten nuts or peanut butter
- Look out for your friends with allergies. If someone looks sick or is having trouble breathing, get an adult right away
If you have a moment, please review the strategies we use to keep students with allergies safe at Armstrong with your child. And remember, all of our classrooms are nut free. Please do not send in any snacks containing nuts.
Thank you for your help supporting this important lesson.
