This is so sad. I don't understand how the school could make this mistake if they were told of the allergy.

That is so sad. All of his loved ones and his school family are in my prayers.

My heart breaks for this family. I have no food allergies, but have several friends that do. I find that people sometimes underestimate the seriousness of a food allergy and think it's just a guise for a preference. Not saying that's what happened here, just an observation...

It's my worst nightmare as a parent of a kid with a food allergy. This wasn't cross contamination which is my usual worry. I am so sad for his family.

Wrong procedure 911 should have been called and then the mother. Precious time was wasted from what I understand.

This happened to my kid, though luckily her allergy is much milder. Allergic to dairy (causes stomach issues) and preschool gave her string cheese. Teacher emailed me the next day to let me know what happened. She had just forgotten in the midst of things. Thankfully DD was mostly fine, but stories like that make you realize how careful we have to be, and how quickly a small mistake can turn deadly. Poor family.

I am betting if they contacted mom first it is because the paperwork may have said that parent must be contacted first...most standard emergency forms have this condition on them. What a tragic story...

If he had an allergy, an epi pen should have been given first (possibly the second one if he wasn't responding), then 911 called, then the parent called. That is the standard for a child who has an allergy.
