Subject: "Brentson's Law" Becomes "THE LAW" in the State of Tennessee today, Tuesday 06/20/2006!

June 20, 2005
 
Principal Constance L. Hayes, Dr. Pedro Garcia, Pam Garrett, Tina Bozeman, Cecelia Hampton, & Other MNPS School Board Members:
 
June 20, 2005 the date "Brentson's Law" became "THE LAW" in the state of Tennessee to protect "ALL CHILDREN" with anaphylaxis food allergies. The same children that Metro Nashville Public Schools "REFUSED" to protect in September of 2005 following "Brentson Duke's" near death experience at Taylor Stratton Elementary!
 
Do any of you at the Board of Education and/or Principal Constance L. Hayes remember what you were doing on 09/12/2005 around 10:00 am? You probably don't but let me refresh your memory. This is "THE DATE & THE TIME" that I received a phone call telling me that my child was having an allergic reaction. This is "THE DAY" that my child and I will "NEVER" forget! This is "THE DAY" that my child almost lost his life due to a severe anaphylactic reaction that he had at Taylor Stratton Elementary by him unknowingly coming into contact with someone that had eaten peanut butter! Does 09/22/2005 ring a bell for any of you? Well, this is "THE DAY" that Principal Constance L. Hayes finally returned my phone call from Monday 09/12/2005 when my child almost died at Taylor Stratton! Principal Constance L. Hayes finally gets the time to return my phone call "NINE BUSINESS DAYS" after my child almost died in her care! However, she only returned my call after Dr. Gregg Patterson "MADE HER" and only after Heather Orne started calling the Board of Education! My mother taught me at an early age that an ounce of compassion goes a long way. Evidently, no one at the "Board of Education nor Principal Constance L. Hayes" were taught this by their parents! Therefore, due to the lack of concern by the Board of Education for the welfare and well being of "ALL" of these children led me to the decision that something had to be done!
What was done is "BRENTSON'S LAW!"  June 20, 2006 the date "Brentson's Law" became "THE LAW" in the state of Tennessee to protect "ALL CHILDREN" with anaphylaxis food allergies. The same children that Metro Nashville Public Schools "REFUSED" to protect in September of 2005 following "Brentson Duke's" near death experience at Taylor Stratton Elementary!
 
I bet "YOU ALL" will remember "THIS DATE!"
 
Sincerely,
Laura Duke
