Peanut Free and Nut Free

peanut free table
My 6 year old daughter is highly allergic to peanuts and tree nuts and will be finishing kindergarten soon. Her school is not peanut free (which I have mixed feelings about but have come to terms with), but they do have peanut free tables. I was able to join her for lunch today and discovered that the "peanut free table" is really just the end of the regular table, so the last few seats are designated as nut free, but is connected to the regular table. So, if my daughter sits in the first nut free seat, she could potentially be sitting next to a child eating a peanut butter sandwich. On one hand I am horrified by this, but on the other I don't want her to be isolated and have to sit alone. We live in a small town and she is the only one in her class with an allergy. She has done pretty well this year and has only had a few very minor reactions at school. But all I can imagine is that little glob of peanut butter getting into her lunch somehow since she is sitting so close to it.I guess I want to know if anyone else would have a problem with this table situation or am I just worrying over nothing?
