IMPORTANT Information UPDATE
The peanut product safer learning evironment has been updated to "Nut Safer". Thank you for your continued support of this practice for of our classrooms/learning areas.  A complete listing of approved food items can be found under "Forms and Documents". Part of our comprehensive, proactive plan is to limit the consumption of nut products in classrooms.  This nut product elimination will go beyond healthy type snacks (peanut butter crackers) to include birthday treats and food products enjoyed at the three classroom parties. We will continue to serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in our dining room and a "sack lunch" could certainly include products restricted in classrooms.  There will continue to be a "nut safer" lunch table available to children. This listing will also be used for the three designated classroom parties.  In an effort to protect all children and to continue to have safety as our number one priority, only items from the listing will be accepted for distribution at school.  Although it would be impossible to guarantee a totally nut-free environment, with your support and effort we can make additional strides in making all children safe while at Cedar Hills.  Thank you for your understanding of this very important matter.
