OUTSIDE FOOD POLICY IN SCHOOL

Our goal at Oaktree Academy is to provide the safest environment for all of our students. As a school we are a peanut/tree nut free school at all times and any items containing these ingredients are not allowed in the school. Due to this and other allergies that have impacted some children our school has a few policies regarding outside food being brought into the school whether that be for teaching, celebrating, or just to eat on any given day. We realize that the care and management of such allergies and reactions are based on their developmental level and our policies reflect that.

K4-3rd Grade: 

At this age students are still learning personal space, knowing how to determine if foods are OK for them to eat, etc. Only food that is safe for ALL students will be allowed in the classrooms*. Teachers are required to let parents know 48 hours in advance via email or Renweb if there will be food in the classroom for teaching purposes/rewards, class parties, celebrations, etc. Parents must notify the school office and their teachers 72 hours in advance via email if food will be brought into the classroom for teaching purposes/rewards, class parties, celebrations, etc.. All food must be pre-packaged and have proper labeling and not contain any allergic contents. No home baked goods will be allowed. All food must be first turned into the front office, do not take food directly to the classroom. *Submitted and approved by administration on a case by case basis.

4th-12th Grade:

By now students are at a point in their developmental level where they can make safer choices pertaining to their allergies. Teachers are required to let parents know 48 hours in advance via email or Renweb if there will be food in the classroom for teaching purposes/rewards, class parties, celebrations, etc. Parents must notify the school office and their teachers 72 hours in advance via email if food will be brought into the classroom for teaching purposes/rewards, class parties, celebrations, etc. Other foods and home baked goods will be allowed in the classrooms – but still no food containing peanuts or tree nuts. All food must be first turned into the front office, do not take food directly to the classroom.
