Allergies

We are committed to the safety of our students. Please speak to the office staff regarding any allergy concerns.

School allergy information

We continue to have an increase in the number of children at Blair Ridge who have severe, life threatening, allergies. As you do with your children's lunch and snacks, we need to be very careful in what is being sent in to the school from home.

Our school is a nut/peanut aware school and you are asked not to send food containing either of these products with your child to school. We understand a manufacturer's label can be quite confusing and have provided examples of labels that indicate items are safe for school. Although this message focuses primarily on "nut product" items, we do have a number of students with severe allergies to other food items as well (mango, kiwi, gluten, shellfish). Your child's classroom teacher may inform you of additional food restrictions in your child's classroom. 

Scent Aware

Please be scent-aware.  Some members of our school community have extreme sensitivities to certain smells and scents. Please refrain from wearing excessive cologne or perfume/body sprays/lotions when entering our school.
