This article is of particular interest to me.
I spent many hours working with our school district so my child could be safe at school. As I've said before, he's carried an Epi-Pen around his waist since his first day of kindergarten. If the school had denied us this right, it would have been a deal breaker resulting in a search for alternative educational opportunities. Every child and every situation is different, but schools and parents need to have some basic understandings and rights when it comes to food allergies.
I fully support State Rep. Tom Murt in his efforts to require Pennsylvania to develop food allergy guidelines for schools. I'm going to write to him right now and see how I can help.
How is your school handling food allergies?
