Allergy Awareness at Bowmore

Allergy Tip #20: Designate a place in your kitchen for your allergens.

One of the easiest ways to limit cross contamination is to try to keep all of your allergens in the same place when possible. Store your child’s lunch bags and lunch containers in a location away from the allergens. In the event that you think there may be cross-contamination, wash using soap and warm water. Allergens can stay on sponges and towels so the safest option is to use disposable methods, such as paper towel or wipes.

Newbold Ravine Trail Upgrades

The City of Toronto wanted to update us on some planned upgrades. See their message below and you can also download the official notice, which is available as images at the end of this post.

 

From the City of Toronto:

The school year may be coming to an end, but we wanted to let local schools know that the connection from Newbold Avenue to Beaton Avenue will be undergoing trail improvements this summer.  Proposed construction (see sketch below) includes removal of existing timber steps and installation of new elevated boardwalk, gently sloping trail, and retaining wall.  These works are scheduled to start in June and expected to be completed by mid-August.

Newbold Ravine – plan viewNewbold Ravine – plan view

Working together with TRCA and RNFP, our objective is to provide improved public access along the trail, while protecting the ravine’s trees and natural environment.

Construction Notices (see attached) are being posted and circulated to the adjacent residents.  Please see the project website (see Upcoming Projects tab) for additional information, or feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
