Letter to send to other parents?? School Bus?
My PA son will be starting kindergarten in two weeks. I have already met with the school nurse and his teacher regarding his allergy, and the teacher has offered to tell the other parents that peanut snacks should not be brought in for birthdays or holiday parties. But I have seen other parents here mention letters that they sent to the other parents in the classroom and would like to mention that as a possiblity to my son's teacher. If anyone can provide me with a copy or example of a letter I would really appreciate it!
Also, what is your school district's policy regarding the school bus for your PA kids? Our district's bus drivers are not required to be trained in Epi-Pen use, but our school nurse will ask the driver if he/she is willing to be trained. I am inclined to let Andre ride the bus IF the driver has been trained. But if not, I will elect to drive him myself (the school is right around the corner). Just wondering what the norm is for school buses.
