Like they say KarenH, "with friends like that, who needs enemies". I have to congratulate you on your restraint in not telling them what idiots they are.

MB---Here goes---Life Threatening Food Allergies in School should not have to be a problem. It has been handled quite well with the school that my children attend.
2. Emergency Plans--We have a plan typed up for each child that has an allergy of any kind and go over it at staff meeting at the beginning of school. 3. Bans---No--only in the room of the allergic child. No nuts. 4. Peanut free tables---no, the student sit by their friends, just not by someone eating nuts. 5. Full Time school Nurse/Part time school nurse---we have a part time school nurse. 6. Personal Aids for fa children---no funding available for such. 7. Bussing---I think they are able to carry their medication if cleared with front office---however as the parent of pa children, i would not put mine on a school bus. 8. 504 plans---we do not do for allergic individuals---you can ---but it is not needed in our particular school system. 9. food in the classroom---as long as it is not the food the child is allergic to. 10. Field Trips---The children do not go anywhere that all children cannot attend. There again, I would suggest going with your children as a matter of your responsibility to them.(My opinion only) I teach high school special education students at a vocational school.

I hesitated about posting in this thread because I teach adult ed. and figured it wasn't really applicable.
However, I decided to post to say that in all my years of teaching adults, not one person has ever approached me to say they had an allergic condition (or any other medical condition come to think of it). Is it because I just haven't had any?
Are adults too shy to let instructors know about their serious allergies? I hope not, because if ever there were an emergency I would be the one who'd have to do something - adult students or not!
I make a point of telling my students at the start of any session that they should tell me if they have any allergies/epipens so that I can be in the know in case of a reaction.
Adult ed. classes are almost always in the evenings. People often don't get to eat before coming to class (arrive straight from work). I *allow* people to eat in class --though I've probably freaked a couple out when I've seen something with peanuts or nuts and ask aloud if anyone's allergic, guess that's the mom in me...

I don't usually tell everyone my allergy. I don't always like to be percieved as different, really. I keep an eye out and only say something if someone brings out a peanut product. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
