What If It Isn\'t?

May not be important to this thread/question, but the Mission Statement for our breakfast program is pretty clear, I think. It can be viewed at [url="http://www.breakfastforlearning.ca"]www.breakfastforlearning.ca[/url]

I can go into all of the details of how I presented the idea to the school last spring so they could get funding, etc. and how I thought I was going to co-ordinate the program. I will know by the end of this week if I am actually considered the co-ordinator or not

So, have had difficulties all along. I volunteer two mornings a week. On two occasions, I have had to remove "may contains" from the program (buckets of muffin mix and several boxes of cereal). My son goes with me (as does my daughter). I also serve, on occasion, another PA child.

Somehow, the principal has managed to blow through the money for the program already, which my mind is still boggled about and I believe will forever be.

The kids received last week a notice about this coming Thursday. Breakfast With Santa. A fundraiser for the breakfast program. I wasn't spoken with about any input whatsoever.

The cost per child is $3.00.

I spoke with the principal on Friday and asked her if since the Breakfast with Santa is this Thursday, if that means I'm not opening the regular program from 8:00 'til 8:45 a.m. No, I'm not. So, my services are not required, but she did say that I could certainly volunteer if I wanted to Thursday. I declined.

Then, a thought dawned on me and I just left a message for the school now.

Bare with me while I sidetrack again - there are cookies sold on Pizza Days. I have never ordered cookies for the kids because I have not checked on the PA safety of them. When I had access to about 20 of them the other morning, I gave them to my SIL rather than bringing them home. My MIL said that they should be "peanut free" and I told her that it just wasn't on my list of priorities to find out if they were (they're chocolate chip cookies so they would be "may contain" if anything not PA safe).

I called the school and left a message asking if the Breakfast for Santa on Thursday was going to be "peanut free" including no "may contains" or "made ins". Also remembering that this is supposed to be a "reduce the risk" school.

I have a pretty good idea in my head of what I am going to do if it is not "peanut free" and my children cannot attend, but what would YOU do?

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
