Crestview Board of Education Food Allergy Policy

The Crestview Local School Board Policy (EFH) accommodates  students with known food allergies and reduces the likelihood of an allergic reaction at school. Parents and staff are encouraged to provide non-food items such as pencils, erasers, stickers, games or bookmarks for classroom celebrations.

The prevalence of food allergies is on the rise in the U.S., now affecting 6 to 8 percent of all children and nearly 1 in 25 school-age children. For some people, an allergic reaction to a particular food may be uncomfortable but not severe. For others, an allergic food reaction can be frightening and even life-threatening. If your child has a diagnosed food allergy, please make your school aware or contact the District Nurses.
