    If you feel this strongly about it, you are welcome to pull your kids out of public school and home-school them. And when and where, exactly, was the herd immunity theory "debunked"? That's news to me. "Debunked" how? Can you provide some documentation of this (other than from a crackpot anti-vax conspiracy theory website)?

    And I would certainly not make the assumption that a refusal by a parent to provide health information "obviously" means that the child is healthy. In fact, that refusal would be a big red flag for me that there may be something going on that the school needs to know about. But, hey, that's just me ...
    Yes, that ^^^^!

    That's freaking brilliant! Why don't all hospitals do this?!?

    Pet Peeves from the school nurse: Not saying "Thank you"
    -Walking into my office demanding things-I have a 4th grader that I've trying to retrain since I started here, he walks in and yells what he wants "Ice pack" "bandaid" whatever, makes me crazy-
    -Parents that repeatedly send their kids to school ridiculously ill-once I can forgive, sometimes you can't get that last minute sitter, but a heads up would be nice!-
    -Parents that berate the nurse because their special snowflake has head lice, yep it's totally my fault; in fact I sprinkled them on their head just to inconvenience you!
    -Teachers who constantly question my nursing judgement or make diagnosis- snowflake coughs r/t allergies and walks in saying "My teacher said that I have pneumonia"
    I Triple like this!!

    I dread having to call the parents. I have and "Allergic to grape juice" this year. Clarification - gives her a stomach ache. Sigh.
    Yes, I have this same problem. It's always the "odd" allergy that this seems to apply to. Once our data clerk sees this on the registration form, she enters in onto the child's record. When the teacher accesses it, they just see "ALERT - FOOD ALLERGY" but doesn't say "grape juice" which causes a panicked call to me from the teacher "OMG I DIDN"T KNOW THEY HAD AN ALLERGY WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?" This generally happens when I have a clinic full of sick kids and 4 kids waiting to take their ADHD meds with absolutely no impulse control . After chasing it down it inevitably ends up being a stomach ache or "she just doesn't like it" per Mom. WHAT A WASTE OF MY TIME!!!! I do not have the time to trace down 300 plus reports of "allergies" for 900+ kids. If someone brings me in MD documentation and medication, I take it very seriously. Otherwise I figure if they can't be bothered to bring in anything it must not be that bad.
    Geesh.....

    I had a teacher that was highly sensitive, and any essential oils would trigger a severe asthma attack. Student was moved to a different classroom. Personally, I can't stomach the smell of patchouli oil...
