BPS Latex Policy
" In the interest of decreasing exposure to latex allergens in the schools, the use of latex gloves, the presence of latex balloons, and the use of tennis balls as chair leg coverings is prohibited in all school buildings and on all school grounds. Due to the potential for serious latex-related allergic reactions, as well as choking hazzards associated with latex balloons, only non-latex gloves and Mylar (please see the trademark "r") balloons will be allowed in school buildings and on school grounds."
