I heard about a school that makes every kid scrub their hands and rinse out their mouth every morning when they come to school and again after lunch because they have a child that is severely allergic to nuts. Can you imagine 30 Kindergartners or First Graders having to go scrub their hands and rinse their mouths, with a teacher's supervision, twice a day? How much time does that take away from learning? I feel horrible for those parents and kids, but at some point don't you have to do what is best for 29 kids and not 1?

It is a tough issue, for sure. Like Jinnah said, they are coming up with more ways to help kids with allergies thru desensitization, etc. Maybe someday severe allergies will become a thing of the past!
