The Board of Education recognizes that there are students who experience adverse health effects from certain fragrances or scented products.

The Board of Education acknowledges that students and staff may wear perfume, cologne and other fragrances outside of school, but does not permit these products to be introduced broadly into the school environment due to the potential for allergic reactions. Fragrances may not be used or sprayed in school buildings during school hours, including hallways, classrooms, and bathrooms, or on school buses.

If a student has a severe allergy to a particular fragrance or scent, the District should be notified either through a student’s health form or by a parent or medical provider notifying the school nurse or building administrator in writing. Upon receiving notification of a severe allergy to a scent or fragrance, if necessary, the

District will assemble a team to develop an individual health care plan. This plan will be maintained by the school nurse and will attempt to minimize the student’s exposure to the fragrance or scent. If the student is eligible for accommodations based on the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act, the appropriate procedures will be followed regarding identification, evaluation and implementation of accommodations.
