Nut Free Policy

Some food products can cause an anaphylactic reaction if a person eats, touches, or breathes in the protein.

Some food products can cause an anaphylactic reaction if a person eats, touches, or breathes in the protein. Anaphylaxis means that the immune system over reacts to a particular protein found in that food. Each reaction is unique and symptoms range from mild to life threatening with each exposure. The eight foods most commonly responsible for the majority of reactions are: cow’s milk, eggs, fish, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat. Examples of non-food related anaphylactic allergens are latex, medication, and insect venom (i.e. bee stings).

Although the district cannot guarantee an allergen free campus, DC Everest Policy 5335.01 provides an anaphylactic aware environment (K-12) for staff and students by taking measures to minimize the risk of an exposure and educate staff to respond to life threatening reactions. During classroom projects and activities, common food allergens, as well as latex, will be avoided.

To reduce the risk of exposure for physician diagnosed anaphylactic food allergies, it is recommended that products containing nuts are consumed in the cafeteria. If nut containing products are eaten, hand washing with soap and water is recommended prior to returning to a classroom environment or playground. Items for snack break should not contain nuts as they cannot be consumed in the classroom.

The food service department will make dietary substitutions in accordance with USDA regulations 7 CFR Part 15b, when the "Medical Statement for Children with Disabilities Requiring Special Foods in Child Nutrition Programs" is correctly completed by a physician and returned to the Supervisor of Food Services.

A reasonable effort for school operated programs will be made to not serve or purchase food products that contain nut ingredients. Nut containing products will not be served in grades K-5. All students may pack a cold lunch containing nut product to be eaten in the cafeteria only.

The parent/guardians will supply a physician signed and completed Anaphylactic Action plan to the school and indicate if the student should sit at an allergy safe table and notify staff if there are any changes in the student’s health.
