Glenbard North has several students with latex allergies, and for their safety, certain latex products are not allowed on campus. Latex balloons and “Silly String” pose a significant health threat to students with a latex allergy. These products are NOT ALLOWED on campus at any time, including after-school, evening, or weekend events.
