Peanut free school suggestions?


Gemma37 January 8, 2013

My daughter is in a Nut free daycare for Prek that unfortunately doesn't offer kindergarten. Does anyone know of any Nut free Elementary schools in West Georgia? So far I haven't been able to locate any private or public schools and was curious if anyone could provide suggestions. thanks so much!

Hi Gemma37, and welcome to the GreatSchools Parent Community.

Have you looked up any allergy parent groups in your area? Many schools are reluctant to be 'nut free' for the liability if some one does get exposed.

If you are having trouble finding a peanut free public school, look at charter schools where they are free to make rules and have people live up to them. In addition, while some schools can not dictate a peanut free stance, find out what the policies are at some of these schools. My daughter's school provides allergy education for all students and it goes a long way toward empathy and encouraging compliance. My daughter would starve before she'd bring any nut products to school for fear of hurting someone.

Good luck!
