Scent Free Building Reminder
Scented products can be harmful to many people, and can make those who have allergies, migraines, environmental sensitivities and chronic heart and lung diseases very sick. Please refrain from wearing scented products in the school due to allergies which result in breathing difficulty in the presence of strong smelling fragrances. This includes items such as colognes and aftershaves like Axe, scented shampoo and conditioners, hairspray, scented deodorants, perfumes, lotions, creams, etc.
