ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — A mother in Arlington Heights is calling for an all-out ban of peanuts at her child’s school.
The woman’s daughter is allergic to peanuts, and had to be rushed to a hospital after suffering an anaphylactic reaction at Olive-Mary Stitt Elementary School.
Earlier this month, the mother urged the Arlington Heights District 25 school board to make it a peanut-free school.
The district has not made a decision on the issue.
For now, the woman’s daughter eats her lunch alone in the school’s front office.
