Are there any schools in North Carolina (Public or Private) that are peanut free. I am interested in schools that do not allow peanut products to be brought into the school as well as do not serve peanut products.

I know there are several school districts that don't serve peanuts, but they still allow peanut products to be brought in.

I would love to hear from anyone who has info!!

Thank you.

Wendy

Hi Wendy,
St. Mary Magdalene ([url]http://www.stmm.net[/url]) in Apex (near Raleigh) is completely nut free. My children do not attend there was I was considering moving and spoke to the nurse at the school last September. At that time she said Peanut butter was not allowed.

I know of some preschools but not any public schools. I am a public school teacher in NC if I can help in any other way.

If anyone else has info on schools, either private or public in NC, please let me know.
We're in a peanut-free school now that is awesome and if we do decide to make the move to NC, I want the same type of environment for ds.

Hi StartingOver,
Are you still in Raleigh? My 21 year old son has just moved there this week and will be looking for a good doctor to refer him to an allergist. He is peanut, tree nut and soy allergic.
Also, any advice you could give on safe grocery stores and food would be appreciated. So far he has found Lowes and seems to think it was OK.
Thanks:)
