Breads & Spreads Important Links
We are pleased to announce that we are now allowing lunch delivery from outside vendors! Breads and Spreads will, of course, continue as usual and be available throughout the year. Lunches may be delivered or dropped off by the parent at the main office.
This will also include birthday treats! Birthday treats may be ordered from an outside vendor or homemade. Soul Flours will continue to be an option for treats and can be arranged by contacting Breads and Spreads. We ask that you continue to follow the classroom birthday policy which can be found here on the RPA website or in the Parent-Student Handbook. Birthdays will be celebrated once a month, preferably on the first Friday of each month. Room moms will help coordinate the birthday celebrations with the classroom teachers. Please remember, all treats that will be shared with the class will need to be individually wrapped.
More importantly, please remember to follow the "Nut Restrictive Policy*" which can be found in our Parent-Student Handbook (P.43). (See below). If your classroom teacher alerts you that your class has a "Higher Exposure Risk", then all nut products will be restricted from that classroom. Classes that are in a "Lower Exposure Risk" will still need to be extra vigilant about having nuts/nut products in the classroom. Any questions should be directed to the classroom teacher, school nurse, or administration.
*PEANUT / TREE NUT AWARE/RESTRICTED CAMPUS Food allergies can be life-threatening. Royal Palm Academy is committed to offering safe educational environments for all students including students with food allergies. A cooperative effort between students, parents, physicians, and school staff members can help minimize risks. Royal Palm Academy is a Peanut / Tree Nut Aware school because of the sensitivity that some children present toward those foods. Depending on the severity of allergy any student may have, we will work in collaboration with the family and the pediatric allergist to implement precautions and procedures to protect the child. Royal Palm has two general categories that currently are used to a building’s nut handling level, these include: Lower Exposure Risk: Nut Awareness level (i.e. a nut-free table in the eating area, or a nut-free classrooms/buildings if necessary, extra hand-washing) Higher Exposure Risk: Nut Restricted level (i.e. attempt to restrict access of all nuts into the classroom/building at all times, all parent)
