Awhile back I found huge document about managing food allergies in school that was from the department of education for some state. I even printed it out and it was like 80 pages. I really think it was at this site that I found this and now I can't remember what state it was from, can't find the post about it and can't find this huge printout that I have somewhere. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

I have recently printed this out and read quite a bit of it. It is really great info and I passed it on to our school. Couple of things that I have identified:
-- responsibilities for cafeteria is very dependent on label reading. We have recently determined that is not an accurate statement when purchasing from distributors (see separate posts under labeling: distributor vs. manufacturing requirements).
-- It does not address assemblies or who is responsible to keep them safe
Just a few things I thought I'd pass on for you to ponder.
