WFDS is a “nut smart” school.  We have students with severe allergies to nuts. Therefore we ask that you not send products containing nuts to school.  If you use “wow” butter or other replacements, help us avoid the confusion by sending a note in the lunchbox indicating that it is a nut-free product.  THANK YOU!
