Valentine’s Day is not far off and prior to your shopping for this day, I am taking this opportunity to remind you of the guidelines in our Parent Handbook regarding Valentine’s and treats:
“Please do not attach any treats on Valentine’s cards (i.e. candy bars, etc.), due to the possibility of a child with a deadly peanut/nut/food allergy receiving the items. Valentine’s with candy attached will not be permitted in any classroom.” We want this day to be special for all students by keeping everyone safe and we do not want to disappoint any child who may bring items to school to give out and then is not permitted to do so.
The PTA will be providing the students with cookies and apple juice during the party on Tuesday, February 14th. The ingredients for the cookies are:
Minute Maid Apple Juice – Apple Juice from concentrate with added ingredients of: pure filtered water, concentrated apple juice, less than 0.5% of: calcium citrate (calcium source), Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), potassium phosphate.
**Cookies – bought from Costco. Ingredients: chocolate chunks (sugar, cocoa solids and cocoa butter, soy lecithin (an emulsifier), vanilla, enriched wheat flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), vegetable shortening (palm oil, canola oil), sugar, eggs, invert syrup, molasses, whey powder, natural and artificial flavors, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, corn starch), salt.
**Produced on equipment that also processes peanuts and tree nuts.
Please be aware the cookies may be made in an area where tree nuts are available.
If your child is unable to have the treat provided because of allergies, you should have already notified the school nurse of this situation. You are asked to provide your child with a treat that he/she can have if they have allergies to the cupcakes being served.
Finally, alternative activities will be planned for children whose families choose not to participate in this event beginning at 2:30 p.m. Please contact Mr. LeCrone through email no later than Wednesday, February 8, 2017, in order that appropriate activities can be arranged. His email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
