Allergies at Mariposa

Allergies at Mariposa

Please be reminded that Mariposa E.S. is a peanut/nut aware school. In common with most other schools, we have a number of children with allergies to peanut and tree nuts (hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, etc). Students are not to bring peanut butter or other imitation nut spreads (e.g. Wow Butter) to school. We also ask students and parents to check labels and avoid sending these products to school.

Additionally, we also have a member of our school who has serious anaphylactic reactions to oranges, mandarins, clementines and shellfish. This allergy is not to the juice but to the oil in the peel.

Thank you for helping to keep all of our students safe.
