In addition to searching in the Schools Forum you may also want to search in Media. This is one article I found there that might help

You might also want to try [url="http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org,"]www.kidswithfoodallergies.org,[/url] there is a log on a peanut free school list and I searched it for you and Tolland CT was listed, as one of the ones people had mentioned, but I didn't find anything on their website. They are also a great resource.

Our peanut-free parochial school is in Maryland. We are not tree nut-free. DD has presumably life-threatening tree nut allergies (high CAP-RAST, never exposed) and she has never had a problem with tree nuts at school.
A few parents complained about the policy initially. Our principal would handle any complaints and I might not be aware if there have been any recently. Compliance is extremely high. All kids, teachers and staff are aware and if anything containing peanut is mistakenly brought to school it is sent back home with a note. Notices asking for baked goods for school functions routinely state that items must be peanut-free. I believe that most of the PA kids (but not my DD) eat cafeteria food and food brought by other parents for parties etc. There have been no food allergic reactions in the 4 1/2 years we've been peanut-free.

Rivier College Early Childhood Center in Nashua, NH is peanut free/ tree nut free.
They also have daycare. They are wonderful! If anyone in southern NH is looking for a great preschool/kindergarten experience, as well as it being peanut/nut free.
They also have a full-time nurse at the Early Childhood Center.

I'm hoping you get lots of responses here with current info -- I am watching for northern Virginia & DC area keenly as we may likely move there next summer. . . [moving, again, just shoot me.]
Keep re-raising this after the TGiving holiday to see what kind of responses you get.

Our school (not public) went peanut-free five years ago. The principal made the decision to go peanut-free without being asked. I think one reason this has been so successful was that the principal took full responsibility for her decision and never put the peanut-allergic children or their families in the middle. She handled any conflicts, complaints, etc. Now it is just accepted that our school is peanut-free.

I think it is reasonable for an elementary school where one or more students have contact allergies to peanuts to be peanut-free. I don't think it is reasonable to make the school tree nut-free where there are no such issues.

There will be children at the school with both peanut and treenut allergies.

And the treenut allergies...are they airborne, or contact or not?
