We're starting to look into schools for DD for kindergarten next year. We're choosing to open enroll her so that her day care can get her to/from school and we can avoid the public school buses.
I'm wondering what kind of questions I should be asking in relation to her allergy. So far here's what I've got:
-Peanut free table?
-Food in classroom?
-Parties - how is food handled?
-Do kids wash hands after lunch before returning to classroom or going out for recess?
I'm also wondering, we're going to push to have DD's emergency medication in her classroom, and also in the nurse's office. But...what do schools do for lunch/recess? I want it to be with DD at all times - but in Kindergarten I think she's too young to self-carry. Do school staff bring medication into the lunchroom, and also with them outside during recess? I'm not sure how this works for others so I'm curious.
If you could suggest more questions to add to my list I'd appreciate it - I'm sure there's stuff I'm missing and I want to be prepared for out interviews so that we can best select a school for her.
