I have a daughter 3 yrs old with severe PA & TNA. I don't find any pre school safe for her since they allow other kids to bring PB to school, even their snacks contain traces of nuts. I don't know what to do and I am looking for other parents with the same situation as mine so we can get together and try to fight this problem with the schools. In 2 yrs. my daughter will start Kindergarden and I am afraid regarding her situation. Can someone address me what to do? I am actually in Broward County, FL and I need help. My daughter's doctor told me that she is so highly severe that even smelling it can die in less than 4 min.
If you know of any law that will help me on this case please e-mail me. This is scarry!

I'm in Florida as well - outside Tallahassee - (hey Stacie, hope things are going well at your school!)
Feel free to email me also at [email]lana_logan@yahoo.com[/email] - I was going to approach the Board of Education with a copy of a general plan or with the copy of the Spokane plan that is already in place. I have planned on mailing this to the board of education health department, but we probably need the support of the senate as well. If I'm correct, I think we have to put it before the state legislature to get it passed.
I will be glad to do whatever I can to get something in our school systems so that all school administrators have heard of this and have a "guideline" to go by and not running blind.
Cam started K this past year and it was a nightmare getting a plan started. It's working ok now, but I would like to see all schools have pre-knowledge prior to getting a child with this allergy - for the parents & child's sake as well as the schools sake.
Let me know how I can help and I'll be glad to do what is neccessary.

I will let you know, I am in the process to see if I can spak with our Congressman here in Broward. You can reach me at (305) 364-9494 that is my office number and we'll keep in touch. That's why I posted the message looking for parents in Florida, to see if together we can make the change in the school public system
