I work as the secretary at a local k-8 public charter school. I'm at the front office from 8-4 Mon-Friday. I love the school. I send my children to the school. It's a school you choose to send your child to, it's not a neighborhood school. It's pretty much a school for hipsters. Lol.
99.4% of the parents are great. It's a small school. I know all of the kids and know many of the parents. It's a community and almost everyone is fantastic.
We have one particular family who ignores a specific rule. No nuts in certain areas. The common areas are nut free(gym, lunch room, office, etc). We have designated classrooms that allow peanuts and tree nuts. We do discourage bringing in nuts, but if your child likes nuts as a snack, we ask that the snack be kept in a separate container and not in the lunch pail(since the kids sit together at lunch).
No nuts at lunch. This is part of the contract that we, as parents, and we, as staff, agree to this rule. We do not offer a hot lunch program, so students have to bring their lunch from home.
There's a parent at the school who does not want to comply with the school procedure. She sends her child to school with a peanut butter sandwich. Every day!
We had some problems when school started. In the beginning of the year it happened a couple of times, and we allowed the child to choose a couple of friends and they could have lunch together in the principals office. We sent a note home to every parent in the school reminding them not to pack peanut products in lunches. Now it's every day. We've sent home notes, called the parents. His mom always has an excuse why she forgets. Now, we feel like we're punishing the child because it's become such a habit that we've stopped letting him bring friends with. We are at a loss as to what to do with the situation.
I don't understand why the mom is ignoring the rules.
