So I take Nathan in to preschool this morning to find the teacher has a bag of M&Ms and it appears she's going to hand them out to the class. I reinforce he's not to eat them or touch them. Her reply was nope nope...So I call the office b/c the more I think about it the ticked I get and I reinforce that they agreed the room was to be nut free on Weds when he's in school....yes she says and we'll go remove the candy from the room. So I'm sure I'm in for a nice attitude when I pick him up in a few minutes. I'm so frustrated and just want to pull him out. This just makes me feel like they don't care and they don't take it seriously.
I don't blame you! I don't think you are being unreasonable. Nuts are something that are fairly easy to keep out of the classroom. My dd has celiac and can't eat gluten, but there is a little boy in her class who is allergic to peanuts. Thankfully he I think is okay with just isolation techniques. There are no nuts in the classroom, but in the lunchroom kids with peanuts have to sit at the end of the table and wash hands before and after. Megan takes in pb&j sometimes, but if his mom felt that was too much I would find alternatives and wouldn't think twice about it.
These is a child in Danny's preschool that is SUPER ANA to all nuts, even coconut and seeds. It can't be anywhere in the room or he will react. Inhaled oil, touching the faucet after someone who ate something with nuts, etc all cause immediate closure of his airway. Literally seconds. We have a 100% nut free room. It is actually really tough but it is definitely doable. I am really sorry that your preschool isn't working with your LO as well...
