In the past, the KPKG PTA has had a Food Allergy Support committee. If you are interested in chairing the committee, please contact us.
Tips for Families with Food Allergies
Forms – Fill out FCPS medical forms (see link below) and bring them to the school health clinic. Changes/updates can be made at any time during the year. Forms can be found on the FCPS School Health Services website.
Communication with Teachers – Many of our Food Allergy (FA) families have found that maintaining good communication with the classroom teachers has been helpful in managing our children’s allergies. We encourage you to reach out to your child’s teachers to discuss daily allergy management practices. Make sure you are aware how things that may affect your child are handled in the classroom (e.g., snack time, birthday treats, hand washing, etc.).
Resources – some FA families have found the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) website to be helpful, especially the information pertaining to schools.
