Trunk or Treat at school
Ok here goes this may be a little over the top.. Just wanna get some opinions.. My daughter has a severe peanut allergy. The school she attends is relativley small, she has a 504, and we have managed school and allergies well over the past couple of years.
This year for Halloween the school is doing a trunk or treat kind of thing in the parking lot. ( this is where people in the community set up and give out candy from their cars and they can be decorated and that kind of thing alot of the churches in our area have been doing this for years instead of the normal door to door stuff.) They will also have games and that type of thing set up to play.
Anyway after some disscusion my husband and I decided our daughter shouldnt attend this event. She of course was very disappointed but I really just dont feel as though it will be safe with all these kids running around eating candy. Then playig games touching everything ect.
Here is my big question will it be safe for my daughter to go back to school and play on the playground the next day after this event? I am sure these kids that I am imagining with reece cups smeared all over their hands and face are gonna end up on the playground at some point while they are there... is this event going to create a minefield for my daughter or am I overreacting??
