Nut Awareness Policy

We have a number of students who suffer from severe nut allergies. Even trace amounts of a problem food can cause a life-threatening allergic reaction.  

Please help us maintain a safe community by keeping all nuts and nut products out of the school (peanuts, walnuts, almonds and all other tree nuts). Even those foods labeled with “may contain" or "traces of" in the list of ingredients can be harmful. We appreciate your assistance in making the school safe for every student.

While we strive to be a nut aware facility, we cannot guarantee that your child will not come into contact with products containing nuts. Every reasonable effort will be made to provide a nut aware environment at Emanuel Congregation. Our Staff, members, and students cannot be held responsible. The ultimate responsibility lies with the parents and student to ensure their safety. It is therefore important that if your child has serious allergies, inform us upon registration, and provide any necessary instructions and an EpiPen.

Please list two people that we may contact in the event we are unable to reach a parent in an emergency.

Please enter one or more names of people you authorize to pick up your child(ren) after school.
e.g. grandparent, aunt, family friend, etc.
e.g. grandparent, aunt, family friend, etc.

If we or our emergency contact cannot be reached cannot be reached in the event of a medical emergency, we hereby give permission to the physician or hospital selected by the school or its selected representative, to hospitalize and/or secure proper treatment for our child(ren) named above. We understand that any costs incurred will be our responsibility.

From time to time, limited information about your child(ren) may be disclosed beyond the scope of Emanuel. This may include the release of students' ages, grades, images, artwork, writing or other school related work to the media for publicity, displays, newsletters, etc. If you do not consent to the release of information, you must notify the temple office in writing, prior to the start of the school year.
