Nut Free Policy – Due to an increasing number of allergies, St. Pius X School is a “NUT FREE” school. “While we cannot guarantee a nut free school, we desire to keep our school safe for all students.” Children with these allergies can have life-threatening reactions to any type of nuts or nut products. We ask that all students bring nut-free snacks and lunches. Please do not send peanut butter sandwiches or any nut products to school with your child. Soy butter is okay. Students who bring lunch with nuts or nut products will be asked not to open them and take them home. If a nutty product is opened, it will be automatically disposed of by the teacher. Thank you for your kind consideration.
