Snacks and Lunch

Allergy Friendly

We promote healthy eating while being conscious of our students who suffer from food allergies. Please do not send peanut or nut products in lunches or snacks and become familiar with our safe snack and safe lunch information. We recommend you print our Allergy-Friendly Safe List and keep it handy so you can refer to it when packing lunches and snacks. 

Our staff is trained to recognize allergic reactions and administer an epi-pen if necessary.

Snack Friend for Preschool and Pre-K

Our long-standing Snack Friend tradition allows our Preschool and Pre-K students to serve as hosts by bringing snacks for their classmates. Our students look forward to their snack day. However, the number of children born with nut allergies is increasing at a dramatic rate. We want to work together with families affected by nut and other allergies to make sure that snack day is indeed a fun day.

You will receive a snack calendar from your teacher at the start of school. We send home a snack bucket with our Preschool & Pre-K students the day before they are “snack friend.” Inside the bucket, you’ll find the Allergy-Friendly Safe List with specific safe foods to make shopping easier. Because snacks are shared with the whole class, we require that snacks do not contain nuts or traces of nuts.

Elementary & Upper School Snacks

Elementary and Upper School students bring their own snacks. Although they don’t bring snacks to share with their class, we still prohibit snacks containing peanut or nut products to ensure the safety of other students with nut allergies.

If you have questions about Safe Snacks or Special Occasion Treats or what it means to be Allergy Friendly, please call the office at 405-283-0144.

Water Bottles

Research continues to reveal the need for water in a young student’s life. It’s essential for a healthy brain. Students need to bring their own water bottles labeled with their name. Please make sure they are cleaned and sent back to school with your student each day. Water bottles are only for water. 


If your student attends school for a full day, please pack a healthy, ready-to-eat lunch and label all items brought from home. If items need to be kept cool, please include an ice pack. Students do not have access to a refrigerator or a microwave at school. While we prohibit peanut butter, we do allow peanut butter alternatives. For our Primer through 2nd grade students, please note on the sandwich bag if it contains a peanut butter substitute. No drink mixes, sodas or other carbonated beverages are allowed at school.

Friday is Pizza Day at King’s Gate! You have the option of ordering pizza for your student for Pizza Day or you may send a lunch from home.

Health & Security

King’s Gate promotes health, nutrition, and security in our curriculum, our daily routines, parent communication tools, staff training, administration, policies, and within our facility.

Emergency Exits

Emergency exit plans are posted in each classroom and regular drills help us practice and prepare for all kinds of emergencies.

Stormy Weather

In case of stormy weather, students are taken to a designated hardened storm room within Surrey Hills Baptist Church. Students at the Village are taken to classrooms with concrete walls.

First Aid/CPR

Our staff is trained in First Aid and CPR, annually and we have a full-time registered nurse on staff at Surrey Hills.

Imunizations & Health

Each student must submit a copy of his/her birth certificate and an updated record of immunizations from a physician or health professional, or a Certificate of Vaccine Exemption. Any student unable to present an immunization record or exemption certificate by the end of the first week of school will not be allowed to return to school until the proper paperwork arrives, by order of the Department of Human Services of the State of Oklahoma.

Staying Home from School

Students who stay home for illness should not return to school until they are well enough to participate in all school activities. King’s Gate does not have provisions to keep a student inside while the class goes outdoors. If your student is ill and will miss school, please notify the office, especially if the child has a communicable disease. Please contact the school for instructions following Covid infection/exposure.


  • Has a contagious disease
  • Shows signs of a fresh cold
  • Has sore or discharging eyes
  • Shows signs of fatigue
  • Has had a temperature of 100 or more, stitches, or a cast within the past 24 hours
  • Was sent home the day before due to symptoms/illness
  • Has or has had anesthesia, thrown up, diarrhea, or had an upset stomach within the past 24 hours


King’s Gate staff will administer over-the-counter medication as long as we have an Authorization for Administration of Medication form on file for your student.

Parents whose children are severely allergic to nuts, bee stings, etc. and desire the Epi-Pen to be used in an emergency as well as students using an inhaler must have the Emergency Permission Authoriztion form on file. Upon using the Epi-Pen, 911 emergency and the parents of the child will be contacted.

Students are protected by State law to carry and self-administer an inhaled asthma medication. 

Emergency Procedures

If a student becomes ill or is injured while at school the staff will provide appropriate first aid. If the illness or injury is not life-threatening at the discretion of staff, the parents will be contacted to come for the child. If the illness or injury is life-threatening, the staff proceeds as follows:

  • Attempt to contact a parent or guardian.
  • Attempt to contact parent through any of the persons listed on the form completed by the parent/guardian.
  • Attempt to contact the child’s physician.
  • If we cannot contact a parent, guardian, or physician, we will do any or all of the following: (a) Call another physician or paramedic, (b) Call an ambulance, (c) Have the child taken to the most convenient medical facility under the escort of a staff member or sponsor.

Any expenses incurred are the responsibility of the student’s family.

Evacuation Procedure

In case of fire, bomb threat, or danger of fire or explosion, the staff’s first responsibility is to evacuate the children to a designated safe area. Emergency exit plans are posted in each classroom. In case of tornado, children will be taken to a designated room within the facility.

Weather & Emergency Closing

Check local television channels for weather closings. If King’s Gate has to close school early, parents will be contacted to pick up students. We take severe weather seriously following safety procedures for all of our students’ protection.

Weather & Air Quality Advisory Guidelines

Weather permitting, students go outside every day as long as the wind-chill factor is above freezing or the heat index is under 100 degrees. Please dress your student in warm clothes and send a coat on cold days. We stay inside during a severe weather watch or warning, when lightning is present, or when there is an air quality advisory.


Communication between King’s Gate and parents is a vital component to your child’s success. We strive to balance between keeping you informed and information overload. Checking your email daily is important for staying connected.
