Clarification ~ Peanuts in School
Southtowns Catholic School asks parents not to send in any peanut snacks or treats for parties or snacks because there are students with peanut allergies. We do not serve peanut butter sandwiches at lunch. However, students may bring in a peanut butter sandwich for lunch. We have designated "PEANUT FREE" tables in the cafeteria. Students are aware of other students that have peanut allergies and do sit at another table or at the end of a table.
