My neighbor thinks she can control the school just because her child has allergies

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So my neighbor moved in just as school ended. We are friendly, we talk when we see each other out. We just found out that our kids (her son, my DD) will be in the same class this year. She saw me walking up my driveway with lots of bags full of school supplies. She said "oh getting ready for school"? DD said "yep, mommy got lots of peanut butter". My DD eats sandwiches at school and the only sandwiches she will eat are peanut butter (peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and fluff, peanut butter and bananas)during the summer, she has lot lunches. Well the neighbor said "I should tell you that your DD won't be allowed to eat peanut butter at school because Jake (her son) has an allergy, I have already called the school and told them that no one can eat peanut butter around my son". Now I know that the school doesn't ban foods because of allergies but I just let it go. I called the school to make sure that they wouldn't be banning it and the secretary said that they will not be. Next time I saw my neighbor, I let her know what I was told and she said "well I will be sending a letter to every parent in the class saying that if they send peanut butter with their kid and her kid somehow gets it, she will sue". It took everything I had not to laugh at her

it's usually in the health food section, not near the peanut butters. why they DONT put it near the peanut butters, i will never know.

Quoting ARmomOf3:

never even heard of it. maybe my area doesn't sell it?

Quoting Des10ed2b:

on a side note, have you tried sunbutter? tastes almost exactly the same as peanut butter, but it is made from sunflower seeds. that is what i eat since i am allergic to nuts and what my kids eat since i cant make them peanut butter sandwiches. its really yummy. we love it. 

Quoting ARmomOf3:

lol not literally. you take people way too seriously. of course she won't starve, but if my child loves peanut butter and that is what she wants for lunch, that's what she will get. if your kid is allergic, don't sit next to mine.

I'd tell her tough shit, my kid isn't going to starve, just have YOURS move away. Bring on the suit.

No child is going to starve if they have to skip peanutbutter for one meal.

The schoo my daughter is at now and her old elementary school they had peanut free tables for the kids who were allergic to nuts. So that is where the neighbours child would be sent to sit during lunch.

Lols, you would he suprised at what schools will do. Here in Oregon, a school district is saying that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist.....

Quoting macbudsmom:

The school will need to make accomodations, but banning peanut butter is typically not one of them.
