Latex Sensitive School Policy
No latex balloons
Bismarck-Henning School District #1 (BHSD) acknowledges its responsibility to reduce, to a reasonably practicable extent, the exposure of its students, employees and visitors to latex protein in the school environment. This will reduce the likelihood of presenting latex allergy symptoms through exposure to latex containing materials. The purpose of this latex sensitive policy is to avoid the severe, life threatening allergic reaction to latex while in the school setting.
No latex balloons will be allowed in the school at any time. This includes all school sponsored events on and off campus. Supplies such as gloves, band aids, stethoscope covers, blood pressure kits, first aid kits and any other nursing or cleaning supplies purchased by the district will be latex free.
