*A HUGE thank-you for supporting our Parent Council

Allergy Alert!!

Dear Parents

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School
is an Allergy Aware school.

Absolutely NO Peanut or tree nut products may be brought to school for snacks, lunches or treats.  

With Valentine's Day approaching, we encourage all parents to rethink sending in food and candy as treats.  However, if you do, the treats must be labeled as peanut and nut free and cannot contain traces of nuts. No homemade treats, please.

Also be aware that we have other allergies to milk and other products.  Please contact your child's teacher to ask about snacks.  
No child should be left out of a class snack or treat.  If the treat cannot be shared by all, then it should not be sent in to be shared by some.

We are responsible for ensuring the safety of all students.  
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Mrs. Pallisco, Principal                        Mrs. Walker, Vice Principal


Congratulations to our Confirmation Candidates!!
