Regarding fundraising, check out your school boards policy on this. My daughter's school board clearly states:
Participation of students in fund raising in schools will be voluntary, and consideration will be given to factors such as the age and safety of the students:
Door-to-door canvassing by students will not be permitted
Fund raising activities will not interfere unduly with the learning experiences in the curriculum. ... ShowPolicy

If exposure to a students allergens is increased by virtue of those allergens brought into a class where that allergen is banned, would that not increase danger and/or anxiety? Safe Schools and Ontario's Education Strategy state:
The Ontario government believes that:
• Every student can learn.
• Every student can and should come to school ready to learn.
• Every student should learn in a school that is properly funded and in good repair.
• Every student in the province should be able to read, do math and comprehend at a high level by the age of 12 as the necessary foundation for later education and social choices.
• Every student should have significant exposure to music and the arts.
• Every student should enjoy regular physical activity, appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and have access to a full range of extracurricular activities.
• Every student should be safe and feel safe at school and in the schoolyard.
• Every student should reach the highest level of achievement that his or her ability and willingness to work hard will permit.
• Every student should receive a good outcome from publicly funded education whether it is an apprenticeship, job placement, or admission to a college or university.
• Every student should know how to think for him-or herself, appreciate the rights and obligations of good citizenship and learn about character values.
