No Nuts Policy – Allergies and Snack Policy

In order to comply with the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act and to keep those students with a deadly form of nut allergy safe at school, San Tan Charter School is a nut free school. No peanut or tree nut sandwiches, granola bars containing nuts, trail mixes containing nuts or nut powders, other snacks containing nuts or any other form of peanuts or tree nuts are permitted on school grounds.

Due to the growing number of students who have been diagnosed with food allergies such as peanut allergies, which can be fatal to some, we ask that you be mindful of the existence of food allergies among children and discourage sharing of snacks or lunches. Sharing food at school is strictly prohibited.
