WCSD Moves Ahead with Allergy Policy

And the Washoe County School District is moving forward with an allergy policy despite new peanut allergy treatment. The first treatment for peanut allergies has officially hit the market. The Food and Drug Administration approved a pill that contains peanut powder. The amount would gradually increase over time. Even with this pill on the market, the Washoe County School District is still moving forward with its allergy policy. The allergy policy says that no outside food can be brought into the classroom and students can’t share food.
