My dd has a severe nut allergy and will start pre-k next year. In our old district there was one nut free school that you could opt to send your child to or at my sons school they either sat at a different lunch table than other kids or had to eat in the school office. I have heard a lot recently about parent petitioning for more schools to become nut free.

Do you really want to trust your child with a severe allergy to a public school? We will be homeschooling my grandson that has peanut and other food allergies.

Not entrusting your 5 yo child's life to a public school doesn't mean you are confining them to their house. Home schooling kids experience much more than kids that are confined to school. It's the best education a child can get. Colleges welcome homeschooled kids because of these facts. I would not trust any child with a medical condition that could kill them in minutes to a public school. Some public schools don't even have full time nurses. You are inexperienced so you don't know what it's like yet. You will educate others around her, wish you luck. There are moms on cm that brag they send peanut butter to school when they know they aren't supposed to just because no one is going to tell them what to do. Parents really aren't going to like it if you start causing problems and try to make her school peanut free. Life is different when your child has a life threatening medical condition.
