WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A 504 ***i repeat, she did not eat the eggs!!

Posted by   + Show Post

Plan if the school isn't going to follow it???


I am so pissed right now I could chew on hot nails!


My daughter is deathly allergic to eggs.  The first week of school we have a DETAILED 504 plan laid out.  Everyone attended, all her teachers, counselor, etc.  The nurse assigned explained to the minute detail everything that should be done in case she has an allergic reaction.  

Today she went through the breakfast line to obtain a juice as usual and the cafeteria worker handed her a tray with eggs on it.  My daughter refused it but the lady said since she touched it she has to take it.

Immediate reaction to the egg and absolutely no one followed through on the 504 plan.

how did she have a reaction if she went thru just for juice? At our schools the line for drinks (other than milk) is in a different line then the food.

I would not come to Cobb.  I honestly gave up and it's part of the reason I am homeschooling DS1 now.  (DS1 has life threatening allergies to wheat, rye, barley and egg).  For years they told me 504's are not necessary for food allergies, then last year they decided they were but I was asking for too much <eye roll> 

You can bitch and moan at the school all you want though.  Actually you should send a matter of fact LOU in regards to the incident and ask for a meeting.  They need to comply within 72hrs.  If they do not or do not meet with the expectations of the 504 then yes, you need to call the DOJ.

Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta has some great advocates and resources.  And if you search for Food Allergy Support Olicentral - check out the school section, they have some awesome resources and knowledgeable folks.

You need to report it to DOJ and hit them where it hurts.

I know you are local to me - you aren't in Cobb Cty by chance though?

We are thinking Gwinnett.

LOU? sorry I am new to all of this. We just recently found out she is allergic.

Wow.  Thank you for the resources. (soon as I calm down, I will check it out)
