What Can I Achieve with a 504 Plan?
My daughter's school has a peanut-free table but this only isolates the child with the disability, not the contaminate. Once she goes on the playground, she is exposed to all of the peanut oil that her peanut-butter eating friends have on their hands as they touch the playground equipment, door knobs, etc.
Our school feels they have adequate measures in place. I disagree. I feel like the peanut-butter products should be isolated and the students that eat them need to wash their hands after they eat and before they play.
Can I achieve this with a 504 plan? And if not, am I within my rights to request a peanut-free campus? I don't know what I'm able to ask for at this point. All I know is she's reacting at least once a month because of kids that eat peanut butter and it's like she's going to a school that allows loaded guns with a bullet only meant for her.
