To those of you whose children attend schools that have either banned peanuts or have a nut free zone... are there any extra costs for the schools to provide services to educate the students or to just have that nut free table or classroom? DH believes that you (the taxpayers) have to pay extra for that stuff, such as monitors to make sure no other kids go to the nut free table, or the materials for teaching the kids about peanut allergies. I say there would be no extra costs or if so very minimal, because I don't think much educational material would need to be provided and cafeterias usually have monitors anyway (by that I mean adults watching the kids).

My boss' grandson has peanut allergies. When he was in elementary school in Texas he was not supposed to eat from the cafeteria...all his meals were packed at home. Half way through the year his mom learned that he had been going to the cafeteria everyday for breakfast. No one ever questioned him, so I don't think there was much education of any kind.
My sister's kids went to a private school in New Hampshire that was peanut free. The only thing they did to tell parents about it was to add a sheet of paper to the beginning of the year papers that went home to parents. My sister didn't see the paper and sent peanut butter crackers for her daughter's snack. Apparently they did have some sort of monitoring in place because my sister received a call telling her to not send peanut products in the future.
