The school bell rings and you find out your child has been placed in a NUT FREE ZONE and I don’t mean nutty kids I mean you have been the recipient of the letter – NO NUTS ALLOWED. This means no peanut butter sandwiches, no trail mix, no cookies with nuts, no peanut butter granola bars, no nuts period.
