I haven't even read past THIS:

[b] Teachers will communicate with other parents. Teachers will sometimes have incentives and maybe have [i]M&Ms,[/i] but will make sure they don't have peanuts. [/b]

Applause light went on for this principal:

[b] We make parents aware ...but you never want to ostracize a kid. [/b]

I did a double take when I read that part, too. But then I thought, maybe they are referring to giving M&Ms to non-allergic kids, making sure they don't have peanuts as an actual ingredient. I hope that is what was meant, but from a short quote, you never know exactly what the speaker was trying to say.
