We are committed to the safety of our students. Please speak to the office staff regarding any allergy concerns.

School allergy information

Maple Ridge is a safe and healthy environment. Our school has implemented guidelines and policies that we ask all parents, students, and staff to review carefully. 

Some school community members are highly sensitive and cannot be in direct contact with the foods listed below.  This includes being in the same lunch or classroom.  To help ensure every child is safe, please do not send the following items for snack/lunch:

  • Peanuts
  • Nuts
  • Treenuts
  • Cashews
  • Shellfish
  • Eggs

Furthermore, Board guidelines stipulate that WOW Butter, and other peanut butter replacement products, are not permitted within our school. While not posing an allergy threat, these products look and smell like peanut butter and make it very difficult to monitor the presence of real peanut butter in the school.  Please ensure that your child doesn’t bring this product in his/her lunches. 

Scent Aware

Please be scent-aware.  Some members of our school community have extreme sensitivities to certain smells and scents. Please refrain from wearing excessive cologne or perfume/body sprays/lotions when entering our school.
