This morning I met with Meghan’s teachers, guidance counselor, school nurse and assistant principal to develop Meghan’s plan in managing Celiac Disease at school. I included Meghan in this meeting because I felt it was important to include her in the process. After all, it is her plan.
It went well! We discussed her diet restrictions and other gluten items that may be used in school– scented hand sanitizer, play-doh, glue, paper mache, etc. We have a plan on handling celebratory events in the classrooms, such as birthdays and holiday parties. I will be providing Meghan (and Kaitlyn) with a snack box for those occasions when I don’t have advanced knowledge to prepare something.
The school was very understanding and accommodating. I expect to have a fine school year.
