Food allergies are becoming more common and can be life threatening. The foods most likely to cause allergic reactions are peanuts, tree nuts, dairy products, eggs, wheat, and shellfish. In compliance with Ohio House Bill 1, which directs all Ohio school districts to safeguard students from peanuts and other food allergens, Guardian Angels School has adopted a policy regarding the distribution of food products in the classrooms. No homemade foods or items from bakeries can be brought into the classroom. Everything brought in must be listed on the GA Safe Food List and be in the package in which it was purchased.
While Guardian Angels School has adopted this new policy in regards to food allergies, peanut butter will still be served in the cafeteria. Students are still welcome to pack food products containing peanuts/tree nuts for their own individual lunches. Students with food allergies will continue to sit in a designated peanut-free zone in the school cafeteria.
The complete policy and a safe snack list can be found below.
