Food Allergy Policy and Guidelines

Bozeman Summit School is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for all students. We understand the increasing prevalence of life threatening allergies among school populations. Recognizing that the risk of accidental exposure to allergens can be reduced in a school setting, Bozeman Summit School is committed to working in cooperation with parents, students, and physicians, to minimize risks and provide a safe educational environment for all students. The focus of allergy management shall be on prevention, education, awareness, communication and emergency response.

The goals for all allergy management include:

  1. To define a formal process for identifying, managing, and ensuring continuity of care for students with life-threatening allergies across all transitions (EC-6). 
  1. To maintain the health and protect the safety of children who have life-threatening allergies in ways that are developmentally appropriate, promote self-advocacy and competence in self-care and provide appropriate educational opportunities.
  2. To ensure that interventions and individual health care plans for students with life-threatening allergies are based on medically accurate information and evidence-based practices.
