SCHOOL PARKING LOT
Signs, Gates and Patrols
We ask that all parents take caution when driving their children to school. Please always slow down and be aware of students walking to school. There is no parking in the ring road. Please enter far drop off your child quickly and exit to keep the traffic flowing. Please do not block the school driveways or turn around in them as this is dangerous to all and it is a fire route. Please leave the handicap parking spots for those who have permits.
NUT/PEANUT/SCENT AWARE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT
We have several students and staff attending Christ the King School with a severe allergy that can cause an anaphylaxis reaction. An anaphylaxis reaction is an allergic reaction so severe that it can cause death. These children have a severe allergy to Peanuts /Nut Products. We also have children/staff with sensitivity to scents. Since these children can react to trace amounts, inhaling or ingesting even minute amounts can trigger a life threatening reaction. Emergency treatment involves immediate drug injection and an immediate trip to the hospital.
These children with this allergy are showing admirable restraint and maturity in dealing with their problem. They are taught not to share any food because of a possible reaction. All of us need to do what we can to provide these children with a safe learning environment. Although this may or may not affect your child’s class directly, we respectfully ask that you make every effort not to send food products to school that contain or may contain peanuts, peanut butter or nut products, remembering to check ingredients carefully. Your understanding is sincerely appreciated.
