I just got off the phone with the associate superintendent who insists that there is no such thing as a peanut free classroom in our district. Does anyone have an allergen free classroom (or even a school?!) where there is an anaphylactic student?

Caroline, do you want this answered specific to peanut? or allergen?

My son's school bans peanuts, but that's not what my son is allergic to.

Ya, it is not a very good poll...let me think about rewording it. Basically, I want to find out they eat with their allergy present. With me it is peanuts, so maybe I should post on the in the 'peanut' thread? I don't know. Feel free to suggest. :?

Personally, I am just as concerned with my younger daughters milk/egg/chicken allergy than I am with my oldest and her peanut/possibly nut allergy.

Us too...eggs are just as big a problem for us, and they will be present in my sons' classroom (celebration cakes etc.). I've certainly never heard of a school going egg free (although that sure would be great for us).
