Unexpected place to find milk

The second graders at my son's school raise butterflies as part of their science unit.  I got a call from the nurse today saying that the teacher had contacted the company to find out what's in the food that's put in the little cups with the caterpillars.  They confirmed that it does, indeed, have milk protein in it.  Ugh... So the teacher is putting it into the cups for everyone this year and they'll wash up after handling the closed cups when they do their observations. 

The good part is that I'm super thrilled that his teacher contacted the company and modified her lesson plan.  I was approached with a solution that feels comfortable to me and couldn't be happier with that piece of it.  But  man, really?  Of all the places to find milk...

Thanks. I was coming to post it, too, after tweeting it.

Posting this on my FB has resulted in two comments where people seemed to question the relevance, since their schools only use dry erase and smart boards.

My mom told me about the chalk.  Ugh.  Fortunately, my son's class uses white boards, but it's worth asking about at our 504 meeting just in case not all classrooms do.

Good going for that teacher though!!! She asked before an emergency happened. :) But seriously? Butterflies??? What the heck...  :insane:

Yes, his teacher this year is amazing.  The kids had a blast with the butterflies.  They got them as caterpillars and did daily observations until they turned into butterflies.  They then kept them inside for a day or two before releasing them.
