We have students with the following severe allergies:
** Sesame - All forms, including seeds, oil, paste and tahini
** Egg White
** All Peas and Pea products
Please be aware when sending in food items, for lunches, pot lucks and birthdays. Thank you!
We are not able to guarantee with 100% certainty that our school is allergy (nuts, sesame, fish, etc.) free. However, because some students have severe LIFE THREATENING allergies, students are asked to refrain from bringing items containing nuts, sesame or traces of nuts/sesame to school. Homerooms which have students with severe allergies will have a medic alert poster outside the classroom indicating the allergy in that room. Teachers will support students in learning how to properly wash hand/desk etc. in order to minimize the risk as best possible in a public setting. All parents in that homeroom will be sent email correspondence in the fall with the necessary details and information.
Severe Sesame Allergy Alert
We have a student attending ÉWCS who has a severe allergy to sesame in all forms. To ensure the health and safety of our student, we ask that everyone refrains from bringing foods that contain sesame in any form ie: seeds, oil, paste, tahini (used in Hummus)
Aerosol sprays, such as deodorants, hair sprays and perfumes are not to be brought to the school, as these are a concern to our students with asthma.
