Dear Pnot09
Scary for sure.... You have a right to be concerned. I would contact the teacher and principal directly first. See what the story is. Have you spoke to your doctor about a 504? Does your child have an "action Plan?" My son submits one every year. Hope you resolve your issue.

My daughter is 7 years old and she has carried her epi-pens on her since starting kindergarten. I started teaching her how to use since she was diagnosed. She has moved up from epipen Jr to Auvi-Q. Her allergist was amazed when she demonstrated how to use it without hesitation. The nurse's office is less than 5 mins from her classroom. You know how important time is if she had a reaction. You know your child, you make the decision how to handle her allergy not the school. I supplied them with the Emergency Action Plan from FAAN, they didn't even have one.

Hi my children stared to go to public school, my oldest one she is 9 and she suffers of peanut allergies I am from texas and I when I went to register my kids. I asked them about the school guidelines but before that I had login on the internet to read and to get inform. Anyways my daughter has so many rights in school. She has a right to have her own table at the cafeteria that saids peanut free. Also the teacher needs to know how to administrate the epi pen as well as the principal of course the nurse too. All the cafeteria crew needs to have some kind of training when it comes on having a student with peanuts allergies. I personally talked to my daughters teacher and I explain it to her that my daughter can go to shock and they made a peanut free classroom.

We have a son who is now in high school. He is airborne to any type nuts. We now know much more than we used to. It is the school responsibility to make your child safe at school. You need to talk with them about a 504 Plan. This is important. If they cannot make it safe then they will have to see your child gets a proper education. We did not know all this, our child went through so much and his life was H---" Now through studying and talking to a lot of people he is now being home school. That was the only way to keep him safe. I would love to talk to you, my email is gigie1970@Aol.com. We have to learn all we can, there are children being laughed at about this problem. He never told us everything until he got older. The teachers or at least some would have it in the rooms. You would not believe the times I picked him up sick. He was young and afraid to say anything. There was kids that would tell him they hated him. He was more of a adult than myself. I would have been in the office everyday. He was bullied so much. We are talking about a child who makes all A's. Please don't wait take care of this now. The state is behind you. Our doctors even sent cd's for the kids in the class room to watch, just incase he needed help. So they would understand. We don't know what happen to the cd's but the kids never seen them. There are so many people out there that don't understand, at least not until it its home. Go to your board of education and if that don't help go to the state. If you have to call in the news, protect your child. He has rights, make them do something now the shots don't always work. You as a parent have to do this. Believe me they won't if you don't stay after them. I wish you the best and May God Bless you and yours.
