Dear Parents and Guardians,

Woodroffe Avenue Public School is a nut-free school.  This includes peanuts, peanut butter, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, nut oils (i.e. peanut oil), nut flavourings (i.e. almond extract), etc.

We are therefore asking you NOT to send any sandwiches or snacks to school with your child that have PEANUTS or ANY OTHER KINDS OF NUT or NUT PRODUCT in them.  The only way to be absolutely sure is to read the label carefully.  If you are still uncertain, please send the unopened package with your child and we will look at the label.

I have attached a copy of  “Peanut Butter-less Lunch and Snack Ideas” from the Ottawa Public Health Department.  On the back side of the sheet you will find many ideas for snacks that you can send with your children that do not have nuts in them.  Please take a moment to look at this list.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the school on Saturday mornings (613-722-6586) or at anytime.

We thank you in advance for your consideration in making the school environment safe.
