We should take some actions (peanut free tables, assemblies on allergy risks for the kids, training staff for incidents, having proper equipment in place) but banning the whole school is wrong. EVERYONE else should not have to change for one person.

Are we going to stop driving cars because a person can die? Are we going to ban guns because a person died?

People need to take responsiblity for themselves...we need to stop coddling them. I don't mind take some action, but overriding one person's rights for someone're going to far.
