Carroll ISD is an Allergy Aware District.  The goal of Health Services is to protect the health and safety of all students while at school.  Due to an increase in food allergies, undiagnosed food allergies, food intolerance's, diabetes and cultural preferences, we are hopeful families will join and support our efforts to accommodate all students and become Allergy Aware.  We cannot guarantee an allergen free environment, but we can abide by the CISD Food Allergy Management plan to minimize unwanted exposure to food allergies and discourage sharing of foods to keep our Dragons safe.
 
Carroll ISD restricts all peanuts and tree nuts from classrooms; this includes daily snacks, birthday celebrations and class parties.  
All food items brought into school for classroom consumption must be coordinated by the classroom teacher, be store bought and have an ingredient label attached to the packaging.  Any label that states the following is NOT permitted in the classroom:
  • "May contain peanuts or tree nuts"
  •  "Processed on shared equipment with nuts"
  • "Manufactured in a plant containing  peanuts or tree nuts"
  • "Contains peanuts or tree nut ingredients"
For safe food options please visit snacksafely.com
