My greatest concern was the busride. I just called to see what hoops I needed to jump through to have dd carry on the bus. NONE! It is really too easy. I would hope for some official document, really. But, all drivers are trained, even practiced real pens on oranges I was told. Maybe I should donate all my old expired pens. I have tons in a closet.

I simply need to tell the driver she has it, and where(in a pack she carries herself) and have her sit in the first row or two. Then she can give it to the teacher at school. The real plan is for me and the teacher to be sure she has it coming home(does not lose it or forget it). So, I just need to have a plan on that end for the teacher to take it and give it back to dd as she gets on the bus.

This also gets our epi into the classroom in a sneaky way! The policy is just with the nurse in her office, but this will keep a set in the classroom as well.

All the peanut free seating is in place already and meets my satisfaction. Dd will have an assigned seat, and anyone without nuts/peanuts can sit with her. So her talbe stays clean all the time. She is clearly identified as being in that spot for all the lunchroom aides and teachers. They do not call it a "peanut free table" but it is. They just don't use a labelling language to avoid a stigma for dd. They prefer she stay at a single location so all who watch for her safety know where she is.

But, we do not even do lunch in Kindergarten. It is a year off for that. I am ok with it. So far in life, all her friends know to avoid PB and I bet they just won't want it if they like sititng with her.

The schools do not serve any peanut products.

I think we are good to go. I have action plans to fill out for what to do for reaction and will have a meeting for details with nurse and teacher.

I know it is not a 504, but the district has alot of allergy risk reduction in place and has for a few years from what I hear. I hope it goes as smoothly as it has so far. Just made all my calls. becca
