Fragrance/Scent-Safe Environment

Fragrance/Scent-Safe Environment
Posted on 02/12/2024

Please be aware that effective immediately, Pleasant Park Public School is a fragrance/scent-safe work and learning environment. This applies to all staff, students, parents, visitors, and volunteers who work or visit the school.



Fragrances and scents are found in a wide range of products including perfume, aftershave, body spray, fabric softeners, laundry detergents, etc..... Exposure to fragrances and other scented products may trigger adverse health reactions (e.g., asthma attack, anaphylactic reaction and shortness of breath) in individuals with asthma, allergies, migraines, or chemical sensitivities. Other less serious but equally debilitating symptoms include headache, sore throat, runny nose, sinus congestion, wheezing, dizziness, anxiety, nausea, etc.... 


Moving towards a fragrance/scent-free environment

In order to protect those individuals with sensitivities to fragrances and scents, and to possibly prevent others from developing such sensitivities, we are asking for your help and cooperation towards a fragrance/scent-free environment at this school. Employees, students and visitors are being requested to avoid the use of these products while at the school. 


Thank you for your help and cooperation in keeping everyone safe.
