Board Policy 504.49 Peanut and Tree Nut Allergies
The Blue Hill School Board has revised the policy regarding Peanut and Tree Nut allergies. The amended policy will take effect at the start of 2023. The approved policy is attached to this notice.
To summarize the changes, the hot lunch program will continue to serve nut-free meals. However, students can bring items from home in their lunches that contain nuts. The nut-free policy will not apply to concession stands, after-school programs, athletic events, classroom celebrations, or field trips. Parents must take responsibility for informing the school of their child’s allergies and notify supervisors of before and after school activities of their child’s allergy.
If you have concerns regarding the policy change, please contact Mr. Ruybalid at 402-756-2085.
