I want to scream/cry.

Just had our PT interviews. The school received a large donation of peanut butter (cases and cases) and decided to have them in the classrooms to give out after PT interviews today.

We have been EXTREMELY vocal about concerns over our kid's safety at school, and feel that while the school says they take allergy management seriously, their actions indicate otherwise.

I don't even know what to do about this. I'm just in total disbelief.

Was it eaten in class? Why didn't they donate it to a food bank? Email to Principal may be in order.

Oh wow, that is unbelievable. Someone must have thought this was a good way to distribute the "free" samples, but what were they thinking?? I would go straight to the principal on this one, right away. Sometimes people just aren't thinking. My son's school would not even allow peanut butter jars in for food drives, so certainly someone needs to be alerted to this oversight. So sorry you have to deal with this.

It wasn't eaten in class (afaik), just handed out after the interviews. Somehow these jars came 'through' a food bank who could not take them as they were about to expire. They aren't sample packs, but the big jars you'd buy at the store.

They were distributed to teachers in the staff room, the principal/vice etc...were aware/ok with it.
