    Peanut allergies
    By buckeye

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I had my walk-through to meet students and parents today. Basically, to make a long story short, I have two students with deadly peanut allergies. I guess the teachers in the past have done away with snack, birthday treats, and any treat (other than fruit) at holiday parties.
    Have any of you dealt with this? I have had students with nut allergies, but each child brought their own snack and we were careful particularly if we were unsure. I am not sure how the other 23 sets of parents are going to handle this. The mother was shocked and fairly rude when I said that I have always done snack before and that I wasn't sure how I was going to handle it. I asked her for a list of things her child could eat.
    Any advice would helpful.
