Dear Parents,

I would like to take this moment to introduce our family to those of you currently at __________________. Our son, __________, is in the 4-year old preschool program with your child____________ is an average child other then the fact that he has life threatening allergies to Peanut, Egg & Pet Dander, as well as being Asthmatic.

This is a very trying moment for us to as we expand our hearts & trust levels to include others in the responsibility of his needs. _________ needs an environment that limits exposure to these allergens. This basically means that items coming into the classroom should not include such allergens. Limited food items & proper hand washing of those who have recently eaten/been in contact with such products, will greatly reduce risk of a reaction.

I am pleased to say that Staff at _____________ have been very responsive to these needs & are working with us regarding crafts & snacks. I would like to ask the same from other families in the program.

We have all been invited to share snacks/treats on special occasions & we would really appreciate it if you could take our son's needs into account when you are bringing something into the classroom. To help you with this request, I am attaching a snack/treat list that we are currently trusting. Because of ____________ sensitivity, he cannot have homemade baked items due to cross-contamination issues. Please call us a day or two before sending in a special homemade treat so that we can send in a similar treat from home so that ____________ does not feel left out.

It is our hope that if we all work together, we can have a safe & healthy year without a trip to the emergency room, or worse.

We invite you to please feel free in contacting us should you have any questions at all.

Thank you so very much for understanding and we apologize for inconveniencing you.

Sincerely,

_________________
