JANESVILLE - A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is costing the School District of Beloit $8,500, according to Rock County Circuit Court records.

A settlement was reached on Dec. 12 in a lawsuit involving the district and a Todd Elementary School student regarding a peanut allergy.

The student's family was awarded $8,500 to cover legal fees and damages from the May 2016 incident when the student ate a peanut and jelly sandwich during lunch period, according to court records.
