I have a meeting set with the director and nurse on Tuesday. I will have to get my ducks in a row and figure out how they can make things safer for my son. Who knows maybe if I'm lucky someone will have done some research and actually understand what celiac is and have some suggestions.
They will not have. I would be 99.9% they know little to nothing about Celiac nor how it would be something they need to help you manage in a school environment.
Some things you may or many not have thought that YOU will need to teach them is:
1) Ply-doh- This is a huge no no for kids with Celiac. Some places will bring in gluten-free playdoh AND tools. Some will just remove it from the class room totally. Some wll ask you to provide your kid with tools and playdoh. It's up to you how to deal with it.
2) Food boxes used for play. Again, you have to decide what you think about it if they have them in the school.
3) Box of safe snacks for those last minutes birthday parties and celebrations
4) BYOF- If you are going to bring in all your kiddos food or what.
Those would be the first things I would want them to learn about. It's a baby step kind of thing and if the teacher is being reasonable then that's a great start!
