PEANUT-FREE POLICY

The Irene-Wakonda School board recognizes that peanut allergies represent a health and safety hazard, which can have serious consequences for those who have such an allergy and the safety of the District.  In order to protect those students, staff, employees, visitor and guests of the District from an environment that may be harmful to them because of such an allergy, and because of possible harm to personal well- being, the Board hereby prohibits the use, serving, or selling peanuts, peanut butter or any product containing peanuts or peanut oil by students, staff members, employees, visitors, or guests in the Irene-Wakonda elementary building and grounds or by any concessions at any of the districts buildings or facilities and in all school owned or contracted building at all times.

 

For purposes of this policy, “Peanuts” will mean all nuts and peanuts including products that use or contain nuts and peanuts, or use peanut oils.

 

This peanut prohibition will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will apply to anyone present in the Elementary Building or on the Elementary Grounds or at any activity on any school building in the District or on school owned grounds ( this includes the football complex).

 

The Board hereby directs the superintendent to formulate any other necessary rules and procedures to ensure the enforcement and implementation of this peanut free policy.
