RE: Peanut Allergies

April 28, 2017


This is just a quick note to remind you that some of our Villa Grove students have some very serious allergies to peanuts. Therefore, we request that you do not send those items containing peanuts into the classrooms. An example of this occurred recently when a contest was going to be held for the upcoming circus. The contest was to guess the number of peanuts in a jar that was brought into a classroom. The principal removed the jar immediately. The intent of the contest was good but in the future you must contact administration and office for approval. Hopefully, we can all work together to find a safer alternative. 

Thank you for following this protocol for the safety of our students with this peanut allergy.
