                                    Peanut Allergies

                                    At Indian Trail School, we are implementing a health and safety program for anaphylactic children. These anaphylactic children have a life-threatening allergy to peanuts, tree nuts, and lentils. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for all students in each of their individual circumstances. As a school community it is important to support each other. One of the great things about Summit Hill School District #161 is the partnership we have with our families and in our community. We are asking for your assistance in providing a safe learning environment for all of our students who have life-threatening peanut allergies. To reduce the risk of exposure, we are asking that food products containing peanut, tree nut, or lentils not to be brought in to school for class activities such as birthdays, holiday celebrations, recreational or instructional class activities. It is important to know that just a tiny amount of the allergen, a trace amount, is enough to cause a reaction that will threaten the life of these allergic children. Therefore, we are asking that you be aware of the labels of products that read, "may contain, shared equipment with, contains trace amounts, or processed on" that indicate peanuts or tree nuts may be present. We are asking that you not send home-baked goods for the aforementioned activities. We also ask that any foods that are brought in be store bought and sealed.  The safety of all of our children is a priority to this district. We appreciate your support of ensuring a safe school environment for all students.

                                    Emergency Closing Information

                                    Parents are automatically signed up for automated text messages and/or email alerts regarding school closing via PowerSchool. Emergency closing information will continue to be broadcasted via radio and television. We kindly ask that parents do not call the school or the district office regarding school closings as we have limited personnel to field such calls.

                                    Missed Assignments

                                    Vacation: Assignments will be given when the student returns from vacation. Illness: Assignments missed due to illness will be given one day per day of absence to complete missed work. Requests for homework should be given to the office before 11:00 am. Requested homework will be available in the office between 3:15 and 3:30. Homework can be sent home with siblings per your request, but not with other students. Summit Hill School District 161 appreciates parents taking an active role in the child's education both at school and at home.

                                    Weapons

                                    A student who uses, possesses, controls, or transfers a weapon, or any object that can reasonably be considered, or looks like, a weapon, shall be expelled for at least one calendar year, but no more than 2 calendar years. The Superintendent may modify the expulsion period and the Board may modify the Superintendent's determination, on a case-by-case basis. A "weapon" means possession, use, control, or transfer of: (1) any gun, rifle, shotgun, a weapon as defined by Section 921 of Title 18, United states Code, firearm as defined in Section 1.1 of the Firearm Owners Identification Act, or use of a weapon as defined in Section 24-1 of the Criminal Code; (2) any other object if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm, including but not limited to, knives, brass knuckles, billy clubs; or (3) "look-alikes" of any weapon as defined above. Any item, such as a baseball bat, pipe, bottle, lock, stick, pencil, and pen, is considered to be a weapon if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm. The Superintendent or designee may grant an exception to this policy, upon the prior request of an adult supervisor, for students in theatre, cooking, ROTC, martial arts, and similar programs, whether or not school-sponsored, provided the item is not equipped, nor intended, to do bodily harm.

                                    Appearance Code
