How do schools handle a child with food allergies?
Newton has a Life Threatening Food Allergy Policy. Parents whose children have a food allergy will meet with the school nurse and develop a Medical Emergency Plan. The School Committee Guidelines can found on our website at http://www.newton.k12.ma.us/Page/2902. Additional information on Medical Emergency Plans is on the Newton Health Department webpage - http://www.newtonma.gov/gov/health/school_health/default.asp
