Fruitvale Elementary School is a PEANUT AND NUT FREE Environment.

Please do not send snacks or other food items to school that contain peanut and other nut products.


  • Read food labels and learn how to identify allergen ingredients.  If you are unsure about a product, choose something else. For information on the many common names that identify allergen ingredients on food labels, refer to the Health Canada Fact Sheets at:
  • Encourage your child to wash their hands with soap and water before eating, and wash their hands and rinse their mouth after eating (including breakfast and snacks).
  • Teach your child not to share his/her food, drink or utensils with classmates.
  • Encourage your child to help clean his/her eating area after meal and snacks.
  • Donating food for social and fundraising events? Check with our office first to make sure all ingredients in foods are clearly labelled including home made items.
