Nuts About Peanut Allergies?

Nuts About Peanut Allergies?

Over the last several years, we've heard quite a bit about peanut allergies and school-wide bans on the nuts.
In an article worth reading, Today's Parent looks at a different take on the problem: telling district personnel about the child's condition and training them in how to use EipiPens.

The conversation would surprise most school administrators and parents, who’ve grown accustomed to no-nuts policies at schools, daycares and other places where children gather. Calon didn’t want Trinity’s school to ban peanut butter or anything else containing nuts. She simply wanted the teachers to know who her daughter was, where her epinephrine auto-injector (EpiPen) was located and how to use it if Trinity was in trouble.
What does your operation do about peanut bans and training drivers in treating students that suffer from peanut allergies, bee sting allergies or diabetes? (thanks for the link, Bruce)
