A Note from our School Nurse, August 2018

August 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of the many students with food allergies (some of which can be life threatening) we would appreciate your assistance in keeping our classroom communities safe for all of our children. If there are any allergy concerns in your child’s classroom, you will receive a more specific letter during the first week of school.

Although manufacturers have become more diligent in indicating allergen status on their products, there is always a danger that foods can be cross-contaminated on production lines.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. San Pietro in the Health Office at (203) 452-4412. For more information on food allergies visit The Food Allergy Research and Education website; it is a great resource for all types of food allergies.

Thank You,

Ileana San Pietro, RN,BSN
Middlebrook Health Office, (203) 452-4412
