The common practice by manufacturers is to include the top eight allergens in their ingredients list, and provide a warning label only if there is a cross contamination issue. These snacks are listed safe as of today’s date. You must still carefully read every label because manufacturers may change manufacturing procedures or ingredients at any time. You must send in any snacks with the original packaging that clearly states the ingredients. If you see a disclaimer indicating that there could be some type of cross contamination you will not be able to serve it. Common disclaimers are:
“Processed in a facility that also processes peanuts/tree-nuts.”
“May contain traces of peanuts and tree-nuts.”
“Processed on shared equipment with nuts.”
“Processed on a dedicated line in a facility that also processes peanuts/tree-nuts.”
In addition, please remember that our school policy requires parents to give the teacher a written 48-hour notice to request a birthday celebration. This gives our teachers enough notice to adjust his/her lesson plans for the day. Please also indicate the item or items you will be bringing to school in that request letter. Other children with different allergies still need notice to bring in a snack that is safe for them. Unless a teacher is notified in advance, your child will not be able to have their birthday celebration.
Thank you for your continued cooperation in this matter. Please contact the School Leadership Team if you have any questions or concerns.

Please see below and attached for information on the upcoming CAPP Parent Program: The workshop is virtual, and will be held:
Friday, May 6, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM. Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84269884524
The workshop is titled Online Exploration and Digital Safety Workshop. The goals of this workshop are to:
· Increase parent/caregiver familiarity with tech devices and apps children are using (including games and social media).
· Demonstrate age-appropriate ways to speak with children about digital safety.
· Provide space for parents/caregivers to share concerns and ask questions.
The group within The New York Foundling that is facilitating this workshop is very reputable, and is the same group that the DOE promotes, and many of our elementary schools already partner with, to conduct the Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP).
This is the program that comes to schools with the hand puppets (Muppets) to provide children with the safety information they need to prevent and report child abuse.Due to tomorrow’s forecast of 100% chance of rain we are using the rain date which will be Monday, May 9th for the FUN RUN. We want to accommodate the vendors and ensure the students have the best conditions possible to enjoy this FUN day!!
