CDN Is a Nut-Free School

Our kitchen prepares a healthy breakfast, full hot lunch and snack daily. We do not serve any food containing nuts. To keep our school safe for all children, especially those with nut allergies, we have a NO NUT policy. Because of this policy, we do not permit any outside food in our building. For help with your child’s food allergy, we refer you to snacksafely.com


Children with asthma must bring their doctor’s prescription and medication to the school before starting in class. Medication is kept in our office for use as directed by your physician.

Before and After Care

Our Before and After School program wraps around the school day to provide a nurturing and safe environment for the children who attend before and after the public-school program.
