IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS
Several students in Third Year have a serious peanut allergy that is potentially life threatening. The severity scale for such an allergy is 0 to 5 and these children have an allergy rating of 4 requiring the use of an anapen (an adrenaline injection) and hospitalisation if any peanut products are touched or ingested or inhaled.
It is therefore essential that your child does not bring any food containing peanuts to school. This will require some vigilance on your part and on the part of anyone else who may prepare your child’s lunch. Packets of peanuts and peanut butter are obvious but sometimes cereal bars, muesli and even some types of bread and cakes can contain peanuts. Many packets will say ‘may contain traces of peanuts’ or made in a factory where peanuts are used’. These products are usually fine, but you will need to avoid any products that have peanuts in their list of ingredients
While you may think it is OK for your child to eat peanuts in school as long as they do not share them, the danger is that peanut residue on your hands could easily, through touch or shared materials, make their way to the allergic child, with very serious consequences. Even in this time of increased hand hygiene we need to adhere to these important precautions.
Your ongoing attention to this issue is much appreciated and essential in keeping all our students safe and well.
Many thanks for your cooperation,
