Should Kids with a Peanut Allergy be Treated the Same as Kids with Disabilities at School?

Here is a good quote from the ADA:

""In both the ADA and Section 504, a person with a disability is someone who has a physical or mental impairment that seriously limits one or more major life activities, or who is regarded as having such impairments. Asthma and allergies are usually considered disabilities under the ADA."

I think that kids with allergies should get special treatment in that they should be protected by school administrators from ingesting anything that could contain peanuts and the airborne dangers. I also think that schools should educate children about the dangers of peanut allergies.
