Dear Parents of children in ________________________________:(name of teacher or age group)

One of the children in our program has a severe allergy to _________________.

Strict avoidance is the only way to prevent an allergic reaction. The allergy can be life threatening.

Anaphylaxis is the severest form of allergy and can affect various organ systems including the upper and lower respiratory systems with the throat possibly
closing. Our school has an emergency procedure established for such an emergency.

The child’s parents take an active role in managing the allergies but need your help concerning treats for the various celebrations. In an effort to allow this child to participate fully in all activities, we ask that you contact us for guidance
in selecting foods to be used during class parties or other special events.

Food allergies are becoming more common. We must do all we can to provide this student with a safe learning environment. With your help we shall achieve our goal.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.


Yours sincerely,
