new to school
My daughter will be going to Kindergarten in the fall. (Severe allergies to eggs and nuts) I had talked with the teacher and she had agreed I volunteer. Then, the principal called me and stated I could not volunteer on a FT basis due to "union" issues. True? My daughter will only be there 2 and 1/2 days per week next year, I can't believe they will not allow me to be there or even more that they are not relieved. She's stating that my daughter needs to be independent! What are you crazy? We are not talking about a doting Mom here. My son is in Kindergarten now (allergy free), I'm not with him 24/7. I have been reading your boards, what is a 504????? What laws can back me up. The nurse is not present full time but she states the office staff is trained on the epi pen. What about the lunch room aids? recess aids? Will they all be trained that if my daughter vomits, etc., it is an emergency and not the flu. I am sure you all understand my apprehension. When asked what systems they have in place, she really had no answer. I am totally upset. Their focus is on reaction rather than prevention! HELP!
