School Trip to DC -8th Grade Son with PA & All TNA
I have a 14 yrs. son who has an 8th grade class trip to DC NEXT WEEK. I did not get chosen as a chaperone, so now I must prepare someone to watch out for him. He is allergic to peanuts and ALL tree nuts. He has never had to use the Epi-Pen but has had reactions with very little contact (taking a bite of a cookie and then spitting it out when he realized there was some type of peanut or other nut).
We are at a private school and they have not been very understanding. They will not tell me who his assigned chaperone is and seem to have a casual attitude about the seriousness of this.
I am going in to discuss with the principal. Any words of wisdom or other advice would be greatly appreciated.
