I guess this is more of a PSA.
I mentioned my daughter's school has a peanut free table in the lunch room. They also have assigned seats.
Two weeks ago when my Daughter gets in the van and I ask her how her day was. She tells me that she is really hungry. I ask her why. She tells me that she wasn't able to eat her lunch because someone at her table was getting itchy.
I ask her why wasn't that person at the peanut free table? Her reply was that she was and then I ask her why was she at the peanut free table with peanut butter. Her response was because thats where her assigned seat was.
I was litterally floored she has been bringing peanut butter to school and sitting at a peanut free table since Sept. She had also said that when she was assigned the seat she tried to tell the person that she likes peanut butter and didn't want to sit at the peanut free table and they told her there was no other room for her. I told her that she can't do that she could make someone really sick or even die. Mind you she is 8 and didn't fully grasp what an allergy could do to a person.
I went into the school the next day and fixed the issue and she is no longer at the table but I honestly never thought they would assign a kid without a peanut allergy at a peanut free table. She told me that there where other kids that brought peanut butter too. One of the things that amazed me is in all this time not one worker noticed that there was peanuts at the peanut free table.
