Letter parent to parent for preschool


HELP... My pre-school which is Peanut and tree nut free is asking for me to write a letter to the parents in my sons pre-school class. I was under the impression they were writing the letter and when asked to see a copy of it today (being it is being distributed next week) they said no we would rather you write the letter parent to parent.... I know I saw a few beautiful letters written on this site to the parents in their childrens classes. I have done a search and can not find anything parent to parent just SD to parent with all the legal stuff in it. If anyone would share their letters with us it would be so appreciated!

This is our letter. Most of the info is from an anaphylasis flyer from our allergist's office. Feel free to use it/change it. I hope it helps. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Dear Parents,

I am taking this opportunity to inform you about our son

Here is my letter. I thought the school was sending one, but. . .


Dear XXXXX Parents,

My son, Joseph, is an energetic, healthy, boy who has a severe food allergy. He is allergic to peanuts and we avoid all nuts and seeds. Joseph cannot eat nuts, peanut butter, other nut butters, nut oil, peanut flour, products cooked in peanut oil, or products that might have nuts in them. He also cannot eat foods manufactured or packaged in facilities that use nuts.

An allergic reaction can be swift and quite severe, even deadly. Reactions can occur from eating a food containing nuts or even touching a peanut or peanut butter. It may be as simple as one child who just ate a peanut butter sandwich, touching the arm of an allergic child. A severe reaction can begin as an itchy rash, red blotches, hives, stomach ache, itchy eyes, or runny nose. Within minutes the reaction can progress to anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a term most often used to describe a life-threatening allergic reaction in which two or more body systems are affected.

The staff at XXXXXX are confident they can handle this type of emergency should one occur. I have talked with Helen, Diane, and Patty to formulate an action plan and to plan for snacks, parties, etc. Joseph will wear an epi-pen in a belt designed for this purpose. An epi-pen is an auto-injector of pre-dosed epinephrine. There will also be a medical kit kept in the office for him with an additional epi-pen and Benedryl.

Here is the letter that we sent out to preschool parents last year;

Dear Parent, Our daughter, Karissa, has a very severe Peanut Allergy. In order to avoid a life threatening allergic reaction we are asking for your help to provide her with a safe school environment.

Any exposure to peanuts/nuts may cause her to go into anaphylaxis, a severe reaction that can lead to death in a matter of minutes and requires emergency medical treatment. Allergic individuals can react to microscopic amounts of food proteins that they have eaten, inhaled or touched. To prevent this from happening, we are simply asking for your help in these areas.
