peanut free classroom
For those of you that have obtained through a 504 a peanut free classroom, how did you obtain it? I have a "note" from the allergist for a second year in a row that my child REQUIRES a peanut free classroom. The school district just keeps saying they can't do that. Have a 504 meeting soon. How would you approach this? The school is not technically peanut-free but parents are voluntarily asked not to send it in. I am comfortable at this point for it to be in the lunch room, but not to be in the classrooom for snack. Any suggestions? My child has had anaphylaxis and has had contact, airborne and ingestion reactions.
Is it an unreasonable accomodation to be a peanut-free classroom, that my child has the right to feel safe in the learning environment?
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
