Lincoln School Peanut/Tree Nut Policy
Lincoln School is a peanut/tree nut "aware" environment. That means we do not serve anything in the dining room that contains nuts in any form, nor do we use any kind of nut oil in cooking, nor do we allow students or staff/faculty to bring peanuts/tree nuts or products containing nuts to school in any form (such as granola bars, cereals, peanut butter crackers or sandwiches). If it clearly states on the packaging “may contain traces of peanut or other tree nuts” it will NOT be allowed on Lincoln School property, (including Lincoln School transportation, and Faxon Farm) or at Lincoln School events, including "away" athletic events.
There are some products which may read, “made on equipment that also processes peanuts and nuts” or “may have been cross contaminated with peanuts during processing” or similar wording. Those items are allowed at Lincoln, but only for the individual who brought them, not for group consumption.
Please contact Nancy Rockefeller, School Nurse, if you have any questions or need clarification.
