What to Bring

Because of COVID measures, students should only come to Pear Tree with:

  • Indoor shoes (in addition to their outdoor shoes). Indoor shoes can be left at Pear Tree for the week.
  • A water bottle (labelled with your child’s name)
  • A sun hat / sunglasses
  • A jacket
  • Packed lunch
    (if not part of our Healthy Hot Lunch Program)
  • Sunscreen should be applied before arriving.
    Staff can apply our own sun spray, but cannot physically apply the lotion for your child
  • EpiPen? if your child has a severe allergy, ensure that your child has an EpiPen on them at all times. Inform Pear Tree staff of this, too.

What Not to Bring

  • Pear Tree is a nut-free zone. Do not bring any products with nuts into any of our facilities!
  • Please be cautious with the snacks you provide your child, especially granola bars, which often contain nuts.
  • If we notice that your child has a product containing nuts, we will need to dispose of this for the safety of the other students.
