Scent Aware School
Sacred Heart Academy is a scent aware building. Some of our students and staff are sensitive to scented products or have conditions which are impacted by scents. We ask that you avoid the use of scented items including:
▪ scented hairspray, hair gels or other styling products ▪ scented face and body creams, lotions and sprays
▪ scented deodorant
Allergy Aware School
Within our school community there are several students who have potentially life-threatening allergy (anaphylaxis) to the following foods:
▪ peanuts/products with peanuts in the ingredients
▪ tree nuts (e.g. almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts,pistachios, walnuts).
▪ fish, shellfish products and latex
To provide an “allergy-safe” environment for children at risk of anaphylaxis please avoid sending these foods to school. Any minimal contact with these foods and their derivatives may cause anaphylactic shock and unconsciousness within a matter of minutes. In such a case, the allergy may even cause the student’s death.
Because even the slightest residue and in some cases even the odor of these allergens may trigger a life-threatening reaction, we need to make the whole school as allergy safe as is practically possible. A “no sharing” policy of food, utensils, containers, straws, etc. is recommended for children with food allergies.
Cannabis and Smoke Free Policy
Sacred Heart Academy is a smoke-free and cannabis-free environment. This policy shall apply to staff, students, parents and visitors, and all school facilities, property, on and off school activities, programs and functions.
All schools under the jurisdiction of NLESD are “Vehicle Idle Free Zones”. This policy aims to eliminate all unnecessary idling of vehicles and exposure to exhaust system emissions. This policy applies to all vehicles while on District property including, but not limited to, the following vehicles: parent, employee, student, vendor, contractor, private, commercial. It also applies to all District fleet, regardless of location.
Allocations are being finalized for this year and are not currently available. Please contact the School District for further details.
