In order to ensure a safe environment for all of our students, BMA is a Tree Nut and Peanut Aware environment. Please be sensitive to the fact that there are students in our school with serious allergies. Failure to comply with this policy may be putting someone else’s child in grave danger.
Being completely Nut-Free (as opposed to Nut-Aware) would disallow any outside food on the BMA campus. Since many of our families opt to send lunch and snacks for their children, and we would like to continue this policy, being Nut-Free is not our preferred option. We realize that being Nut-Aware may be inconvenient for some families, but the safety of ALL our students is of utmost importance to us. Please review the following guidelines and plan your children’s lunches and snacks accordingly.
The following food items are not allowed in school:
Chocolate, granola or snack bars containing any type of nuts
Cookies containing any type of nuts
Any item labeled “may contain traces of peanut and/or tree nuts” or “contains peanuts and/or tree nuts.”
Nutella is a nut product and will not be permitted. Please opt for the kosher, pareve chocolate spread alternative.
Please do not send any items marked as “may contain peanuts” or “may contain traces of peanuts”.
