peanut restricted campus
Oak Ridge is a Peanut Restricted school. Classrooms are Tree Nut and Peanut Restricted.
Our goal is to ensure that students with food allergies have a safe and welcoming learning environment. Children with food allergies face life-threatening reactions when these allergens are ingested or in some cases, inhaled.

Peanut and Tree nut Restricted classrooms
All classrooms including the media center, music room, art room and gym have been designated as "NUT FREE." This means that no snacks containing any kind of peanuts or tree nuts will be allowed. Students may eat tree nuts in the lunchroom only. There are no peanuts allowed anywhere in the school or on school grounds. Posters are posted throughout the school as reminders.
teacher and lunch monitor awareness training
All staff will receive education and information on specific allergies of Oak Ridge students along with procedures for addressing allergic reactions. Each staff is epi-pen trained yearly.
New child identified bags with their specific allergy medications are readily accessible to staff in the school office. If your child is in need of a kit, see Sue Kaczowski in the front office.
one page picture sheet
All parents of students with life threatening food allergies can sign a permission slip and provide a 2 x 3" picture that will be added to a one page sheet. This sheet is distributed to each teacher and staff member at school. This ensures that everyone is aware of the students in the school with life threatening allergies.

There is a table designated for those children who have food allergies in the lunchroom
National Food allergy awareness week
