It is the night before Aaron’s yearly 504 plan meeting. In the past I would be concerned. Not now. I know this new school has his best interest at heart and want to keep him safe. He is in a peanut free environment at school for the first time. They have a general plan they have been using in school to this point. His school environment has so many kids with varying needs that he does not stick out like a sore thumb. Aaron has never let his allergies define him. This small school his allergies, although important, don’t feel as urgent.
It’s the night before the 504 plan meeting and all is fine. What a lovely change from a school that tried to tell me he didn’t qualify for one and only after I talked lawyer did they honor my request and take his allergies and us as his parents seriously.
