Holiday Classroom Activities That Involve Food Crafts
This week my daughter's "K" class is having a holiday party. They are choosing to do crafts with food such as decorating sugar cookies with M&M's, sprinkles, and icing - all items that would cause my daughter to go into anaphalaxis. I have a 504 plan in place and all food items are supposed to go through me before they are brought into the classroom but this time there was not any regard to my daughter's severe PN and TN allergy. Every other time I have provided all of the food and this time other parents are bringing items in without involving us in the discussion. I want to keep the peace and learn from this but I am scared to death to let her attend school that day and then the next day I want to go to the class myself and wipe/wash everything down myself. How are other parents handling these kind of parties? Thanks in advance for any advice.
