Allergies

In January 2011, the Illinois State Board of Education enacted Public Act 96-0349, which requires school boards in Illinois to adopt policies promoting both the prevention and management of life-threatening allergic reactions. A copy of Community Consolidated School District 21’s manual, Procedures for Managing Life-Threatening Food Allergies in School, is available here or at your child’s school. In accordance with this policy, classroom snacks are limited to fruits, vegetables and hard cheese. If necessary, these snacks may be further limited in accordance with specific food allergies in a classroom. School District 21 does not allow food as a birthday treat at school.
