There is a law in Ontario that requires schools to protect students with life-threatening food allergies (anaphylaxis). While the majority of the responsibility lies with anaphylactic students and their parents, the entire school community has an important role to play in protecting these children. Chances are, sooner or later, your child will have a classmate who has a serious food related allergy. Please refer to the links below for guidance on how to keep these children safe at Blythwood:

For parents of children with anaphylaxis and/or asthma:

  • Please arrange to speak with your child’s teacher about keeping your child safe in the classroom
  • Parents should note the expiration date of the auto-injector provided to the school to ensure that it is replaced when necessary
  • Please inform the school if your child has asthma

Please contact the Allergy Committee with questions or concerns:
