Our son has Peanut/Tree Nut and Egg allergies and is in grade 2. At the beginning of the year we met with his teacher who seemed very eager to help us deal with the upcoming school year. He keeps in contact with us and seems to have questions often which makes us feel great that he is taking the issue seriously. He actually switched to WOW butter at home so he wouldn't run the risk of cross contamination which is way beyond the call of duty in my opinion. Today he told me he stopped using his hand cream since it contained coconut. When I told him that in our case our son is fine with coconut I think he was releived that he hadn't put our son at risk. I wish all teachers were as caring for their students. There are still treats brought in once in a while that our son doesn't touch but the teacher had us send in a stash of safe treats and he gives him one of those. Just thought I would pass on a nice story to help keep us sane.

That's great! It's nice to hear stories of educators who are so allergy-aware and awesome. We have had some great teachers also. :D

Wow, that's awesome! It wouldn't hurt to send an e-mail to the principal telling him/her how much you appreciate your son's teacher.

Wonderful to hear of a teacher like that!

Susan is right that a note to the Principal outlining reasons why you appreciate the teacher may give others some ideas on how to better manage students with food allergies.
