To comply with the requirements from Child Nutrition Services for our students with food allergies and accommodating their needs we need information from parents.
In order to help the school assure a safe environment for your child, there is certain information that will help in this endeavor. Please provide the following information to the school:
- Provide written medical documentation/diagnosis and instructions from your physician.
- Send to your child’s teacher some safe food substituted for your child to eat when food is brought to the classroom for special occasions.
- Provide an EpiPen and/or other medication and documentation for its use from your doctor in case of an emergency. The required forms for use are available in the office.
Other things that would be helpful in caring for your child are:
Continue to educate your child about their allergy including how to avoid their allergen, what foods are safe and unsafe, to tell an adult if they are experiencing symptoms of a reaction, not to trade foods with other students, and to eat only foods that have been identified as safe.
Review food and non-food allergies and the emergency plan with your child’s teacher, school nurse, bus drivers, and coaches.
Review the cafeteria menu to be sure the foods offered are safe for your child.
Call the food service director, Mary Sayers, at 818-4288 if you have questions about the menu.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Hello Bunker Families,
October has been an exciting month filled with adventure and celebrations. It was wonderful to see so many parents at “coffee with the principal” where many thoughtful questions and ideas were shared. The Walkathon was a tremendous success and the participation of students and volunteers once again impressed the entire community. Thank you for your support, and the many ways you contributed to the success of this Bunker tradition. This fundraiser supports our school in many positive ways, and we are grateful once again for the opportunities it provides our students and staff. Sixth grade had a safe and very memorable trip to Science Camp. I was fortunate enough to join them with a few students for a day trip as we saw the kids in their element, branching out to meet new people, and maturing right before our eyes. This will undoubtedly be a highlight of these students’s time at Bunker School.
As we enter this holiday season, I want to express my gratitude for the supportive community that Bunker is. The staff, students, and families make this school unique and successful and an honor to be a part of. Best wishes to you and yours as you enjoy time together and making and sharing memories. Here is to a happy and healthy 2014!
All the best,
Walk-a-Thon Thank You
Our Walk-a-thon was a great success. Thank you to all of you who came and participated in this family-oriented fundraiser. A very special thank you to the parents and teachers who volunteered their time to make this event so special by dedicating their endless time so our Bunker community could get together and enjoy our 22nd Walk-a-thon.
Viola Blythe Canned Food and Toy Drive
Our annual toy and canned food drive will continue through Friday, Dec. 20. Please bring your canned food donations and new, unwrapped toys for the holidays into the classroom or drop them off in the bin by the flag pole. We thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion.
School attendance is mandatory for elementary school students in California. Our students lose valuable learning time for every minute they are late, each doctor appointment that is scheduled for them during the day, and those times when they ask to have a “day off.” Please see that your children are in school when they are not sick. We miss them when they aren’t here and they get behind when they aren’t learning with their classmates. Thank you for your support!
LOST AND FOUND
Please remember to check the lost and found clothing hanging on the fence or rack by the cafeteria; it is full of your children’s LOST OR LEFT BEHIND CLOTHING! These lost items will be donated to Viola Blythe over the Winter Break so check early! THANKS SO MUCH.
