I need help requesting that our school move along that path of peanut risk reduction.

Does your school allow PB to be used in projects (school-wide)?

Does your school have grade-level special snacks (an event) where parents are asked to provide PB, specifically?

We moved to this location not long ago. Our previous school was farther along this path, but I feel like I am swimming upstream. I am just curious if I am being unreasonable.

My son's pre-school is peanut-free, so I don't need to worry about that... yet!
However they do an art project with pudding, and my son has a dairy allergy too. I'm sure I saw soy pudding out there once, but I'm having trouble finding it again. I hope I find it before they do that project!

Hi! I am a week into formally requesting that my child's school take a variety of precautions to keep her safe. While I was trying informally (it's a small private school) everyone was very interested and sympathetic but nothing actually happened. Since making it official ie laying all my requests out in writing it has gone very quiet! Will keep you posted!

Please search threads for Section 504 children with disabilities act. You may find information regarding what you can do to protect child in school. You can also search under my name and I have written a few posts of what I am doing and a little about what 504 is. I hope this helps you. Your child may have certain rights under Federal Law that the school must abide by. Please search and write back. I hope this helps.

Hi CS:
Neither my sons school or classroom are peanut free. However, we do not allow "classroom" type activities to be done w/peanut containing activites. (ie, no peanut containing party treats, or any type of projects like making a bird feeder w/peanut butter).
So I think if your school is trying to be peanut safe, that it is entirely reasonable to request that no peanut items be used in projects or group snacks.
