Peanut and tree nut free zone

Food allergies are serious business! Several students within LGSD have severe food allergies.

What does it mean if a child is allergic to nuts?

An allergy to tree nuts or peanuts can be life threatening. A food allergy is a disease not a choice. A child with a tree nut allergy can't eat or come into contact with any tree nut/peanut products. It is more than just not liking nuts. If a child with a severe allergy accidentally eats a tree nut or peanut, then they could break out in a rash, have swelling of the face and airways, or could stop breathing. In extreme cases and without medical care, a severe food allergy can be deadly.

Samples of Tree Nuts: almond; Brazil nut; cashew; chestnut; filbert/hazelnut; macadamia nut; pecan; pine nut (pignolia nut); pistachio; walnut. Did you know that a peanut is NOT a tree nut?

Peanuts: Students can also have a severe allergy to peanuts. Peanuts grow under the ground and are a part of the legume family.

For more information please see the Allergy Info Sheet.

EveryDay Matters

There's a very strong correlation between good attendance and success in school. On the other hand, students who regularly miss school are also more likely to struggle in school.

Missed days add up quickly: Just two days a month puts a child's success in jeopardy because students fall behind and disconnect. By third grade, it gets much more difficult to catch up. Students who regularly miss school can quickly feel hopeless, and returning becomes harder and harder.
