So I got a note home saying no peanut butter

Why, because a kid in DS's 2and grade class ate another kid's nutter butter (stole it) and had an allergic reaction. Apparently now the mom is having a fit. This is not a situation where the kid can't be in the same room with peanut butter, it's that the kid hasn't been taught well enough to to steal other people's food. I called the principal on Friday and she said that there is no school rule to that effect. The teacher is allowed to make a rule for no peanut butter in the classroom but not in the lunch room. So I am planning on not sending peanut butter to the classroom, but to the lunch room, I will send what I want. My child is lactose intolerant so anything with milk is out (cheese crackers, cheese sandwiches, yogurt, string cheese) and while he will eat ham or turkery sandwiches occasionally but mostly as far as sandwiches go, it's peanut butter.

Don't get me wrong, if the child would be in danger of being in the same room with it but if the child just has to not eat it (since I didn't send it for that kid, it's ok) I am not going to go out of my way. I mean if my kid eats too much dairy, he could end up with a stomach bleed so guess what, I taught him not to eat dairy and not to eat other people's food, I didn't try to say that other kids couldn't have dairy at school.

Yes but you can't die from being Lactose Intolerant as you can with a peanut allergy. Have you ever eaten something that you shouldn't?

Sounds like a lesson in self-control.  Hopefully the peanut thief learned his lesson:)

Does he get in trouble for stealing food? Did it happen at school? The mother needs to take responsibility.

Your child eats enough dairy and has stomach issues. Another child has one bite of peanut and can't breathe. Oh yeah, I totally see how they are the same thing. SMH.

My dd isn't even a year yet so idk what I'd do in that situation 3-4 years from now but this looks like its becoming extremely common which is sad to see. I think if the principal said your son can have pb&j in the lunch room then he should be able to. I mean I think it's ridiculous all these food bans. Teach your kids to keep their hands to themselves and this wouldn't be happening. Parents need to take more responsiblility and stop expecting the teachers to parent their children for them.

most people are smart enough to not eat something we're allergic to

Maybe the parent needs to control their child and punish that child for stealing. I'd be livid if that child stole my child's food. The mom should be pissed off at her child for stealing food and having a reaction. I mean if my child had an allergy to food I'd teach him to stay away from it. My kids already know not to steal people's food.
