I think it is a bad idea, but it's an ongoing battle here. Kids can definately be allergic to guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, etc. One teacher here actually had ferrets as class pets! The entire hallway stunk by the end of the year. Administration finally made her take them home.
mc3, If you send me your email address, I will send you a copy. We get them printed as a duplicate ay office max. I'm firstname.lastname@example.org
I also call if there is fever 100+, vomiting or a serious injury. On occasion I will call on a non frequent flyer who makes a few visits in one day or truly seems ill. Unfortunately, we have lots of parents who shuffle complaining kids out of the car saying 'just go to the nurse and I will pick you up'. I usually call those parents hoping they won't make that statement again
I have a 1/2 sheet clinic note (carbon copy) that goes with every student who comes in. That way I can mark what they came in for, that they didn't have a temp and what I did. These seem to make it home with the younger kids because the teachers remind them to put the note in thier folder. Not so much with my middle schoolers, but at leats I have a copy. I use Renweb and also computer document every visit. It has an option to email the note which has been really helpful. I email any bump to the head or bone injury that seems minor, just to cover myself. I call for true sprains, head injuries, etc.
I'm in a private school Pre-K thru 8th grade.
