Sample Letter from School Nurse

Dear Parent/Guardian:

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of a student in your child's class with a severe dairy and dog allergy.  These allergies can range from mild to severe life-threatening reactions when dairy products are ingested, or from just touching or smelling these foods, or from residue from another child who has touched it.

For the above reasons, I am asking your cooperation so that all of our students here are provided with a safe environment in which to learn.  Please do not send any dairy products into the classroom.  Please remind your children not to share any snacks and to be sure to clean their hands before and after eating snack and lunch.  Please check with the classroom teacher before sending in snacks for parties, birthdays, special occasions, etc.

Thank you for your cooperation now and throughout the upcoming year.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
