*If you have any questions about Safe Snacks or Special Occasion Treats or about what it means to be an Allergy Friendly Program, please feel free to call the office, 752-2111.

Some parents have shared their concerns about the King’s Gate classrooms becoming Allergy Friendly. We have worked hard to ensure that this is not a burden on the families. We will send home a snack bucket with your child the day before they are “snack friend.” There is a list with the bucket to help you as you pick the snack. The list is very specific in order to help make the shopping easy.  Since the snacks are shared with all the children in the class, it is important that the snacks do not have nuts or traces of nuts.

Snack Friend is a long-standing tradition at King’s Gate and we want to continue the fun. If you would like King’s Gate to provide the snack on your child’s snack day, please let us know one week in advance and we would be glad to provide the snack. It is our desire that King’s Gate would be a safe place for every child, including the children at King’s Gate with nut allergies.

The number of children being born with nut allergies is increasing at a dramatic rate. Hopefully food manufacturers will begin to consider this fact and begin to work towards protecting children against cross-contamination exposure to nuts. Until then, we can work together to protect all children.
