Yes - it is that time of year again isn't it? I anticipate we will be hearing about a lot of school situations. Very frustrating, but at least the story ended nicely. I certainly hope this school learned their lesson.
As for communion, we are approaching that this year. I don't anticipate a problem as I am assuming (and, of course, will check out) that the hosts are peanut free. I certainly hope the Catholic church can get with the program and try to understand food allergies.

Is a "tax exempt" status considered "federal funding"?
