It was our first child’s very first year of school. As first-time parents often do, my husband and I eagerly attended the Junior Kindergarten orientation. Topics for discussion were curriculum, busing, and what to pack in our child’s backpack. We went over the checklist: change of clothing in case our child had an accident, check! Indoor shoes so the classroom would not get muddy, check! Two peanut-free snacks and a peanut-free lunch…wait! Our child’s school was completely peanut-free, we learned to our surprise!
