New Food Allergy Guidelines



New Food Allergy Management Procedural Guidelines were approved in August for all Trumbull Public Schools.  The Guidelines are now posted on the TPS website.  Please make every effort to review the guidelines, especially if your child has a food allergy.

Please send in non-edible treats only for birthday celebrations.

Please remind your child that there is no eating on the bus and that food and drinks should never be shared with any classmate.

If you have been notified that your child is in an “allergy aware” classroom, please check labels for allergens before packing snacks and please remind your child which items are meant to be eaten for snack and which are to be saved for lunch.  We are not able to provide lists of “safe” snacks as ingredients and packaging facilities can change at any time.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep all of our students safe in school!
