All school doors are secured as of 8:05 a.m. and visitors enter by the main entrance and sign in and out with the receptionist.

Health & Safety
When preparing your daughter's lunch or snack, please do not include any item containing nuts, seeds, peanut butter or sunflower oil. The Study does not use any of these items in the food it prepares or has catered.
All students with life-threatening food allergies must have one EpiPen with them at all times and keep a second one in the Elementary School Office, or in the case of Senior School students, with the School Receptionist. Parents must instruct their daughter to only eat food they have brought from home and allow her photograph to be posted at the reception, in staff rooms and in the lunchroom. On outings and field trips the supervising teacher will also take a second EpiPen.
The school will administer first aid for minor injuries. Should the injury be more serious, parents will be promptly notified or an ambulance may be called to take the student to the hospital.
Parents are requested to complete a medical form for their daughter(s) and to return it to the School Receptionist by the first day of school.
The school will not independently administer any type of medication. Any parents who wish the school to administer any medication not prescribed by a doctor (e.g. Tylenol, cough syrup) to their children must provide this medication along with a written request.
