Very scared Mommy, please read
I'm new to the site. My son is 5yrs old and came very close to death before his 1st birthday because of allergies. He is severely allergic to peanuts/tree nuts and also has allergies to wheat, soy, eggs, maple syrup and so much more. He's supposed to be starting school in a couple of months and I'm deathly afraid to let him out of my sight and in the care of someone other than me. Everyone around us jokes and calls him bubble boy but this is a very serious matter. Where do I start with the school situation? How do I make them aware of the severity of it? I want to make sure I cover all bases when it comes to putting him in school. We live in California, what do I need to make sure to do or file with the school or district? Please help ever if I left something out that I should be thinking about I would appreciate it. This was a fear of mine since he was a baby, I don't want to put him in school but I know I have to.
