St. Philip’s Episcopal School is an allergy aware campus. Allergy action plans are coordinated by the school nurse in conjunction with families and their doctors for each student with an allergy. Where necessary, signs are posted to alert students, faculty, staff, and visitors to known allergens in a particular classroom. The nurse meets with the kitchen staff on a regular basis to ensure that all meals take students with food allergies into account. The nurse also works closely with the faculty and staff to develop a cohesive approach to allergy management including the proper emergency use of an Epi-pen. For more information about allergy awareness at St. Philip’s please contact our nurse, Stephanie Begert.
As part of our commitment to supporting your child as a whole person, St. Philip’s incorporates mindfulness practices into the school day across the grade levels. These practices are designed to help children manage stress and become more emotionally resilient.
