The TWIN VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT recognizes that life-threatening allergies are on the rise nationally and affects 5% of children and 4% of adults including many students at TVSD.
People diagnosed with severe allergies can have devastating reactions that can result in serious illness, or in extreme cases, death when exposed to a specific food allergens. Some are at-risk only if they ingest the identified allergen. For others, simply touching a desk in the classroom or a water fountain that has the allergen on it can trigger an allergic reaction. To support our students and staff diagnosed with a life threatening allergy, TVSD has added procedures to address K-8 classroom birthday celebrations, daily snacks, and classroom parties. Please review the documents below for information about our safe snack procedures and safe snack list.
