Allergy Awareness

Food allergies are serious threats that many of our students face daily.  This video highlights how life-threatning allergies can be. Many students on our campus have food allergies, and we ask all of our families to help make sure we keep all of our Eagle Family safe.  

Here are a few tips:

  • Pack a lunch that is free of peanuts and tree nuts. 
  • For those families who know that a student in their class has a food allergy, please be extra vigilant in what you pack for your student. 
  • Never send class-wide snacks or food that is not store-bought and labeled nut-free. 
  • Avoid bringing these foods on campus: cashews, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, tree nuts, and shellfish. 

Ever wonder what parents of students with food allergies would like us all to know? Here is a great article that helps everyone understand their worries and concerns. Remember: Food allergies are not a choice, but what families pack in their student’s lunch box is.  We want to work together to be sure all of our Eagles are safe at school, we hope everyone joins us in that effort!

Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) Public Safety Act Disclosure

According to the 2018 guidelines established under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) Public Safety Act (SB 7026), the Florida Legislature has amended Florida Statute 1006.07(1)(b) to require each student at the time of initial registration for the school in the school district to note referrals to mental health services the student has had. The intent is to better connect students and their families to mental health services, should there be a need. Aventura City of Excellence School will be screening students to identify those who may qualify for these services. If you do not want your student screened, please inform us in writing.
