I also include an Uncrustable in their lunch sometimes when I pack, since I figure it's in the cafeteria anyway.

If there was no peanut butter allowed, I wouldn't try to fight that. Wouldn't substitute with sunbutter though! DS had a friend in K who ate sunbutter sandwiches so he wanted one too. But the day he ate one, he wound up with hives all over his body. The allergist thought it might have added to the allergies he was already experiencing at the time (seasonal), or might have been unrelated? But we won't try sunbutter again!
The reason they allow pb&j but not nuts most likely, is because the dust from the nuts can go into the air.There is no way to contain it. Pb on a sandwich would either have to be eaten or touched. That is a little easier to contained.
