Nut Safe Procedures

Peanut/Tree Nut Safe Neshobe


To All Parents, Guardians, Students, Faculty, and Staff at Neshobe:


Food allergies are on the rise and can cause a severe, systemic, potentially fatal allergic reaction called anaphylaxis in allergic individuals. 


Peanut and tree nut allergies account for most fatal and near-fatal anaphylactic reactions.


Allergic individuals can experience anaphylaxis if they touch, inhale or ingest even the slightest trace or residue of the allergen.


To help make school a fun and safe place for our increasing number of peanut- and tree-nut-allergic students, we’re becoming a peanut- and tree-nut-safe school.


In addition to cleaning hands and mouths before entering school, here’s how you can help:


Lunches and snacks

• Send lunches and snacks with items that contain no peanuts, tree nuts, peanut butter, or nut butter.


Shared Items

• Read labels to ensure shared items, such as snacks and craft materials, contain no peanuts or tree nuts, no traces of peanuts or tree nuts, and are not manufactured in a facility or on equipment that processes peanuts or tree nuts.

• Provide shared items in their original, unopened packages.



• Consider sending non-food birthday treats


Thank you.
