 Are you a nut free school?
Epiphany promotes nut-free classrooms and does not allow students or staff to bring food containing any type of nuts (peanuts or tree nuts) or foods processed in a facility that processes nut products into the classrooms. Some of our students have severe nut allergies so we appreciate our families working to keep these students safe. Epiphany is committed to working with students with multiple food allergies and sensitivities. Please talk with the director if you have specific questions.

 What type of snacks/lunches should we pack?
Students should bring a healthy, nut free snack that is easy for them to feed themselves.  For our Toddler’s and 2’s, food should be cut into bite size pieces to prevent choking. They should also bring a cup for water.  We do have a water only policy for snack time.  Lunches should follow the same guidelines but can include juice or milk.

 What should I do if my child is sick?
Please call the school anytime your child will be absent. If your child misses school for illness, he/she should not return to school until he/she has been fever-free without medication for 24 hours, has been on antibiotics for 24 hours, has not experienced uncontrollable body excretions for at least 24 hours or has regained his/her usual behavior and appearance. If you are unsure about sending your child to school, keep him/her home. If you have an upcoming planned absence, please let the director and your child’s teacher know prior to your
absence.
