Please make sure your child wears a nice black top with jeans or khakis. The girls are welcome to wear black dresses. The A Cappella group will be wearing green or red tops. Winter hats, or other "rocker" type hats are also welcome.

Severe Food Allergies
During this time of the year when there are many classroom or school-wide events and celebrations, it is important to remember that some students at Sea Crest have severe, life threatening food allergies including dairy, gluten, soy, shellfish, tree nuts and peanuts. 

When preparing  food for potlucks, bake sales, celebrations, or school gatherings, please avoid peanuts and tree nuts and clearly mark any dishes that may include them. To learn more about this condition and how we can support our students with severe food allergies, Amy Regan Morehouse, a Sea Crest parent, shared with us her family's experience. Please click here to watch her presentation:  video or slides. Thank you, Amy!
