Sunflower Elementary has been proclaimed a Latex Free School. We strive to make Sunflower a safe place for all students. In order to ensure a safe environment, we need to make sure latex items like balloons are not allowed in our building.
Please refrain from sending anything containing latex into the building (gloves, balloons) even if there are not latex allergies in your student’s grade level. Latex reactions can be contact and airborne, so even breathing in latex particles in the air can cause an anaphylactic reaction.
All the gloves and band-aides from the health room are latex free. Small novelty erasers and items usually have a low content of latex. The main thing is no latex balloons.
Please understand that we want our school to be a safe and healthy environment for all of our students, and with your support and cooperation, we can achieve our goal. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at any time.
