President’s Message

Welcome to the Marshall PTA’s new e-newsletter! We will use this newsletter to bring you important information about our school, upcoming events, teachers, students, and our fabulous Marshall community.

A Nurse’s Note on Food Allergies

Marshall School is no longer a peanut/nut free School, but we do have some classrooms that will remain peanut/nut free. Their lunch tables will also be designated as peanut/nut free. If your child is in a class where a student has a food allergy of any type, you have been advised by the classroom teacher. Please remind your children to not share food at any time. If your child’s classroom is designated as “peanut/tree nut free,” there are several extra strategies and precautions that are in place to help prevent allergic reactions. In addition, our lunch tables are cleaned between lunch sessions with products that remove peanut residue. WISH LIST: Containers of Lysol wipes (no Clorox brand) to assist us with the lunchroom clean up. Keep them coming!
