Schools Accommodating People with Sensitivities

Jefferson City Public Schools Fragrance Free Statement

Visitors to the Jefferson City Public Schools will often see signs regarding "Fragrance Free" zones. We also make every attempt to remind patrons of the district about fragrance free through our news releases to the media.

University of Calgary's scent-free initiative

New Scent-Free Environment Initiative for SMR

All students, faculty and staff of the School of Medical Rehabilitation are asked to refrain from using strong smelling scented products including perfumes, hairsprays, aftershaves, lotions etc. Scented products can trigger or aggravate health problems for some people, such as those with asthma, allergies or other health conditions. Please help to ensure that our environment is healthy for everyone.

Guidelines on the Use of Perfumes and Scented Products

Exposure to perfumes and other scented products can trigger serious health reactions in individuals with asthma, allergies, migraines, or chemical sensitivities.

There are a few of our students who have serious allergic reactions to scented perfumes and hair sprays. We are asking, for the safety of these individuals, that students, staff and parents avoid the use of such items when in school. As well, the odour associated with the popping of popcorn causes difficulty for some of our students. Please do not send popcorn to school unless it has been pre-popped. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.

Happy Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Week!

The Profesional Writing and Editing (TAFE Dept.) team at Victoria University (VU), St Albans, Australia, do a fantastic job at including and accommodating students who have disabilities and are 'access challenged'. They are leaders at innovating and implementing strategies that facilitate an inclusive environment for all students, including the ever-increasing few who suffer health problems relating to the chemicals in fragrance.
