Second of all, I feel like I've got the food allergy back to school routine pretty down pat at this point. He goes to Catholic school so the school is K-8 so he didn't actually change schools to go to junior high. That made it super easy! And his teacher from last year moved up a grade and he got her again this year (for home room, he will switch classes) so there is an added bonus.
We did get a new school nurse this year, so I met her on orientation day and we discussed his food allergies and asthma and all of his action plans.
I feel pretty good about sending him back. I don't think any food allergy parent feels completely great sending their child off to the care of others, but I think I feel about as good as I can.
All of meds are packed and labeled. All of our paperwork is filled out. And our safe snack box is packed and ready for the classroom.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and food allergy safe school year!!
