News for the Week of September 15th

As you all know our nut allergy policy has changed here at CCE for the lunch room. Students are now welcome to bring desired snacks and lunches that contain nuts. However, we are still nut free in all classrooms. It is extremely important that the snacks that are being brought into the classroom do not contain nuts. Please check the labels to ensure they do not say “may contain nuts”. Students will be asked to put these back in their backpacks. Thank you for your attention to this very important matter.
