Brookside Intermediate is an allergy aware environment. Please alert your child’s teacher as soon as possible if your child has any serious medical conditions or life threatening allergies. There is also a place for this information on the student data form. Where necessary, a medical alert form will be sent home for parents to complete.
Please note that we do have students and staff with serious life threatening allergies to peanuts, eggs, tree nuts and seafood. We ask all students and their families to be very conscientious of avoiding these products when packing snacks and lunches.
The Newfoundland & Labrador English School District has determined that given the similarities in appearance, texture and taste of Soy Butter products, they are also restricted in our schools where a student has a peanut allergy. We recognize that these products present no risk of anaphylactic allergy; however, having these products in our schools does undermine our capacity to enforce our restriction of peanut butter.
Brookside Intermediate is a scent-aware school. We ask that visitors in our school refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes, aftershave and other scented products.
