Complaints about parents and older siblings going out and collecting eggs with older elementary school age children have been voiced. A reminder to all parents – this Easter egg hunt is for the children. If you feel like you need to be out on the field to help your older school age child for some reason, arrive early enough to let one of the Easter egg hunt helpers know so they will know you have a reason for being out there.
Due to donations from parents and businesses, we will have candy with peanuts and peanut butter in them. If you have a child with peanut allergies or any other allergies you will need to be aware of the candy in their Easter basket and make sure you take out any candy with peanut products or other candy that may be harmful to them.
