Non-Food Allergies at School

The most common non-food allergic reactions are related to latex and insect stings. Due to these allergies, we ask that you do not bring any latex, specifically latex balloons to school. For someone with severe allergies, the only way to avoid a reaction is to strictly avoid exposure to their trigger or triggers. Prevention practices in our schools are put in place both on a general and an individual level.

Want to Be Part of the Largest Game of Freeze Tag?

The event is called "We Play Together" and will take place on Sat, Oct 27 at the Mounds View High School Stadium.
