Allergy Notice to Parents
To eliminate the chance of a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment, and to foster a safe, supportive, and inclusive educational experience, we are asking that you NOT send foods with peanut, peanut containing products, egg (ie. hard boiled eggs, egg salad, quiche, etc.) or raw egg products (ie. mayonnaise or mayo containing products).
The policy presented at the last board meeting on Nov. 19, 2018 for its second reading is as follows:
Pursuant to Act 158, Barnard School District will provide a safe, supportive, and inclusive educational environment for all students with a life-threatening allergy or chronic illness. Any student with a life-threatening allergy or chronic illness may be provided with protection under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Dear Barnard Families,
The children have been studying the Winter Solstice as well as the many holidays around the world enjoyed during this time of year. We also have been preparing for our Holiday performance “The Voyage of the Wee Red Cap” to be performed on Tuesday, Dec.18th, at 6:00pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
As we get closer to the end of 2018, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to all who help make Barnard Academy the great school it is. BA staff is a community with many strengths. Our collective efforts to support students to love learning and nature will have a positive and lasting influence in the future for us all.
Parents are a critical part of all we hope to accomplish on behalf of our BA students. We are grateful to you for doing what we know firsthand is the hardest, most rewarding job of all. Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious gift!
Above all, we have the most wonderful, talented, creative, inquiring, resourceful and resilient students!! They make us laugh, they make us think, they have our love. They best express the true meaning of this holiday season.
Please have a joyous holiday season, and thanks again for everything that you do for our school.
