Patti, your response letter to the teacher was very understanding and helpful. I believe that teachers will soon realize that the bigger risk of a reaction will arise from uniformed parents of the allergic child. Having safe snacks and reducing the risk of reactions by providing safe zones/peanut free zones and handwashing will help reduce the chances of a reaction.

The AAAAI's position statement includes the training of lay personnel to adminsiter epinephrine.

You may find some great paragraphs in the latter part of the AAAAI's position statements which will help teachers.
