We don't hae peanut free schools either. Some classrooms can be peanut free, and the elementary kids usually get a peanut free lunch table - but by the time they hit middle school, they're on their own.
Here too. DDs classroom is, but not the whole school.
There shouldn't be.
I don't think there is in our area either. Those kids shouldn't be around other kids anyway. What if they had a weird eating habit and ate a pb&j for breakfast.
We don't either and I live in a MAJOR metropolitan area. The reality is, there is NO such thing as a "peanut free" school. The school can NOT control what the kids eat at home or what is in their pockets. The idea is ludicrous to say the least.
Our kids schools are peanut free and I am glad about it. Keeps a lot of kids safe. My kids can wait until they are home to eat a peanut butter sandwich.
