Dear Parents/Guardians of School District 11 Students:
Food allergies can be life-threatening. It is important that schools, students, parents, and physicians work together to help minimize risks for students with food allergies. District 11 has implemented a policy (JLCDA, Response to Students with Food Allergies) and we wanted to inform you of this important policy required by State law.
If your child has been prescribed medication for treatment of a food allergy or anaphylaxis, please contact your child’s school to obtain a Medication Administration form and an Allergy & Anaphylaxis Plan form. We strongly encourage you to return these completed forms and supply the school with the prescribed medication needed for treatment of the student’s food allergies or anaphylaxis in a timely fashion.
Additional information related to food allergies and student’s special dietary needs can be found at any CSSD11 School Kitchen.
Please feel free to contact your school with questions or concerns related to your child’s diagnosed food allergy or anaphylaxis plan.
