Hi, I’m hoping you can shed some light on this topic for me. My 3rd grader is moving to a new school where class parties happen once a month. Previously, it was a food free classroom. How do I make sure she’s included, but also safe?
This is a great question, and it’s awesome that you want to make sure he’s included. There are a lot of steps you can take to make sure your child is included in the parties. Rather than give you a long-winded answer, I’m going to send you straight to this resource: Navigating Class Parties When Your Child Has Food Allergies.
That article is going to give you the tools to help your child enjoy these once a month parties.
Should you find that class parties are too much to handle, or become unsafe, see if there’s a food free class party option at your next 504 plan meeting.
Good luck with this!
