Great idea Nicole -- also if there are other schools / principals in your area that are doing things right or better than what your experiencing, bring them forward as examples. If you can say School X does this and this, and all schools are under the same policy, your principal will be less able to hide behind policy as a reason for not making change.

On this idea of what other schools in your board are doing does the board know the inconsistencies? Seeing as this is somewhat of a liability issue for the board and some schools have effective safety precautions in place and some don't would that not make them open to liability?
My suggestion is after your meeting on Monday, if you are still not satisfied with precautions taken let the superintendant(or principal's boss) know of your situation and the inconsistencies within your board. Ask for a meeting with this individual to discuss. If you have an elected official on your school board, contact them to alert them of your situation and see what suggestions they may have.
All the best tomorrow :!:

Thanks again, everyone. I had Chinese food last night and got the fortune, " You will soon receive very special attention." With you all helping me, I am ready!

Dear Caroline,
Good for you for taking a stand! You are defenitely doing the right thing!!! School's should be absolutely nut-free. It can save many lives!! Just because, tables are wiped and hands are washed doesn't totally prevent a reaction to an anaphlactic!! The smell is in the air!! That is just as bad as consuming it!! Keep it up and fight for those rights!! I'm very proud!!

- Monique

This is what I got as a reply for a thank you email I sent to someone in my school:

"So for the moment I am not the bad guy. I wonder how long that will last?"

Try a come back line for that! :shock:

Give me strength!

How about:

or
"As long as you play nice"
