I would like to start a positive thread.
One in which we praise the times when school teachers go that extra mile for our allergic child.
So many of the threads in the school section hold horror stories, and do not give a clear picture for the rest of the time when schools have truly 'got it'.
I worry about the parents who have got school life looming up ahead of them and fear the worst.

Here are mine!
My sons school teacher is going out on her lunch break to buy packets of safe biscuits and other safe cooking ingrediants , just for my son.
They all work hard to ensure that William as far as possible can take part in cookery lessons. ( off course , cooking with raw egg , is a no go area for william!)
I offered to go and fetch them myself, or pay for them,but she told me the school will pay and she will get them.
I have handed over a nice shopping list and off she went!!
any one else have any happy school stories?

sarah ( off course , william will not eat anything he cooks at the moment, but never mind , thats a different problem!!)

Great idea for a topic. My son's teacher had all the kid's in his class make fridge magnets with the school's name, a peanut with a red circle with a line through it and No Nut's written on the bottom. Her idea not mine!
So far we have been very lucky in the teachers we have encountered all have been very aware and helpful in dealing with allergy issues. Now if the same could just be said for all the parents, some of whom still insist on sending peanut butter sandwiches to school. Will just have to keep working on it!

Nicks mum, wow what a great idea about the fridge magnets. DD's school district is putting together an information session on allergies for students. I think that would really make an impression on the kids.
I just wanted to add that my dd's teacher, principal, and really all the staff have been very supportive. I've been very fortunate.
