Vent ! Parents who don\'t \'get it\' and the schools that don\'t enforce it
I'm at my wits end. My daughter who is 5 and in kindergarten is on a 504 plan for her type 1 diabetes and PA . After involving OCR we have a plan in place for a peanut free classroom and her class lunch table. All students in her class are forbidden to bring in any type of peanut/nut products and this has been in place for most of the year. Well, last Friday my daughter lets me know that a boy in her class ate PB&J at lunch sitting right next to her. Monday morning my husband and I spoke to the assistant principal about this and he responded that he will deal with the problem. Well, today my daughter comes home and lets me know the same boy ate Reeces peanut butter cups for lunch today and even held one up to show her before he ate it and told her what it was. I asked her if she told the teacher and she said no because she was too scared. I'm so angry now that the school is letting this go on and they seem to be slacking now that the school year is ending. I feel they should have spoken to the boys parents immedietly and told them they cannot bring in peanut products ever again. Obviously this didn't happen and the parent is doing it on purpose. I even considered calling the parents tonight and speaking to them myself but decided to wait until the morning and let the school have it. This time I'll expect some proof that they're handling this problem. It just makes me wonder how many times kids have brought in peanut products this year without me knowing about it.
