Delone Catholic is Latex-free!

Because of the increasing number of students who have allergic reactions to latex, through contact and through the air, Delone Catholic will use only products that are free from latex. We need the help of all parents and students to make sure that no latex balloon enters this school for birthday celebrations, for athletic senior recognition, for school dances or for any decoration throughout the school. For one of our students, this could be a life-threatening situation so everyone’s help is needed and appreciated.

Delone Catholic Practices Safety for those with Nut Allergies!

Items containing peanuts and other tree nuts may be brought to school for individual lunches, but we ask that after eating foods containing nuts, you thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces you have come in contact with. When supplying food for group consumption, please refrain from bringing items containing nuts unless you also supply an alternative. Thank you for keeping the safety of all of our students in mind!
