Providing a safe environment for students with food allergies must be observed by all constituents of the Charlotte Latin community. The parents of any student who has a food allergy of any type must make the School aware of this health condition and provide an Allergy Action Plan. To ensure student safety, no food containing peanuts/nut products may be served at Charlotte Latin School by faculty, staff, parents, or students to any other person. No foods may be consumed in the classrooms that contain nut/nut products. Founders’ Hall and Shelton Hall will still serve food products that contain nut/nut products, which will be identified by signs. Students may bring lunches that contain nut/nut products.
Please note that foods that do not contain visible nuts may contain traces of nuts in other forms (e.g. oils, flour, butter, and meal). It is important to read the labels of any foods that are brought into School to be shared with others. Manufacturers change packaging and processing, so please read the ingredient label of your chosen snack, making sure that it does not contain any of the following: peanuts/nuts, peanut/nut butter, peanut/nut oil, peanut/nut flour, peanut/nut meal, or any of the statements, “May contain traces of peanuts/nut” or “Manufactured in a facility that also processes peanut (and/or other nuts).”
For a current list of commonly available nut-free snacks, you may access the Snack Safely website, which is updated every three months.
Latin’s counseling program offers a number of services to support and educate students in all grades. Individual, short-term counseling focuses on problem solving issues related to the student’s school, home or social life. Referrals for individual counseling come from the student’s teacher or parent or from the student. Assessment and referral is offered to students and their families when more specialized, long-term counseling is recommended. The counselor assesses the student’s needs and then works with the student’s parents to facilitate an appropriate referral. Consultation and resources are offered to teachers and parents, providing guidance and problem solving related to issues in the classroom and at home. Group Counseling and social-emotional education are offered as well.
