hi, i just wanted to let you know that i received a phone call from the superintendent of my girls school yesterday. they have decided to become peanut free- they will not serve any peanut products at school, and are preparing a letter before open house to send to all families to let them know of the new policy. no-one will be allowed to bring peanut foods to school for lunches or snacks. what a relief, i have been so stressed about this for so long waiting to hear from them. i am sure though that there may be people that still send in the pb&j sandwiches in the beginning to test the rule, did anyone else out there have this happen? if it did, did the school let you know of it, there will be a para sitting at the table with them (there is always one at the kindergarten table) but still nervous, whats wrong with me, i asked for the school to become peanut free, they said yes, i should be relieved,and i was, but then i started thinking of all the "what ifs", does anyone else out there also do this? i am naturally a worry wart all the time over non-allergy issues also, and the rest of my family just thinks i am crazy, just wondering if there is anyone else out there
