The guidelines will be available on the school district's website this summer. Some of the major changes to the District's policy are listed here, but the guidelines in their entirety will be listed online later this summer. The guidelines will create unity between all the District's elementary schools and Williston Middle School. Williston High School's policies will be largely unchanged. ... 920624.txt

During the training, one of the subcommittees came up with a list of 30 people who may be helpful in creating an allergy plan for the school district as well as developing a list of procedures and ways to educate the public, said Superintendent Dr. Viola LaFontaine. The committee may be made up of nurses, doctors, school staff, school transportation department, parents of children with allergies and parents of children without allergies, the WilMac special education program, Williston Parks and Recreation, and representatives from other schools, she said. Ideally a policy will be created by April or May of next year, and meetings will be held over the summer to fine-tune it so it can be published in students handbooks for the 2011-2012 school year, she said. ... 634463.txt

One reader is upset some students are denied peanut butter because a small number is allergic to peanuts; "What I really object to is that no public notice was given to the parents of our students so they would be able to get the facts and voice their opinions...And yes I still think these kids need to learn to deal with and live with their allergy. The world is not going to bow to them forever," the person said.

Another person argues peanut allergies are more dangerous, and schools would be doing the right thing by being peanut-safe.

"Simply put, it is ignorant to say that kids should 'learn to deal with it.' Kids with peanut allergies spend their whole lives learning to deal with their allergy. The real debate here is whether a school is an inherently riskier place then other locations. I would argue it is. We're talking about saving lives here. The solution is pretty clear," the person said. The District 1 School Board hasn't made a formal decision regarding how to handle peanut allergies throughout the district. In other words, the board has yet to adopt a policy regarding peanut allergies.
