There are several kids with nuts allergies. JD Brink's is severe. Please remember no nuts or food that is processed in a peanut or nut factory on the bus. Nuts are everywhere and the kids carry their epi-pens, but enclosed on the bus is very dangerous if they are surrounded. The oils from nuts doesn't wash off easy, so if you have a candy bar and touch someone with an allergy they can have a reaction, and possibly stop breathing.
Thank you all for your help with this, if you should have any questions, please contact me 605 770 7915.
