Need Help writing allergy policy for school

I am a mother of 3, two of which are PA. After having my child in a public school for 4 years without a peanut-free zone in the cafeteria, I have finally gotten one with a new adminstration (and the an allergy doctor's mention of a lawsuit). After having an incident in the cafeteria today, I was asked by the school nurse and the principle to help write a policy regarding Peanut allergies.They used the Peanut-Free table today as an isolation table for the misbehaving children. My child was sitting at the table when this happened with his peanut free friend. Children are allowed to consume peanut candy in the gym and its atrium. I know that there is no such thing at peanut free school and that is not what I am asking. I just want peanut free zones in classrooms and places where my child will have to be. They are allergic even to touch. So, if anyone can help with any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Wow! Terrific!

I would love to read it too. My guess is that lots of others here would also. Would you be willing to paste your document on a new thread in the Schools Forum? (Please, oh please.) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Please, NKShep, PeanutTrace and Nutless Mom, send your policies to me, too.

I am working with my children's principal now to come up with something better than a class-by-class approach. I worry about the common areas like the gym, library and playground as both my kids are extremely allergic. They are in JK and I've noticed that handwashing or wiping is not done upon classmates' arrival or immediately after eating, nor are tables washed down after snacks.

Thanks.

NKShep and PeanutTrace:

Would you please also send the emails to me? My daughter started Kindergarten this year and I initially felt good about the atmosphere. Unfortunately some things have happened to change my mind.

Thank you very much!! Kelseymom - [email]mjckmarino@att.net[/email]
