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 ...
I had a first grader tell me yesterday that he's had a sore throat "since I was a baby"
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"
Hammy???Gone????????Never to return???
Do you think he went to the Great Hamster Wheel in the Sky?? I once had a dog who "went to live on a farm in upstate New York". Do you think he went there?
I am HEARTBROKEN!!
(plays taps for Hammy...)
Me, Me! (raises hand and waves).... At a new school and so far so good
Darned if I don't keep forgetting about Pink Wednesdays though!!!!
I dread having to call the parents. I have and "Allergic to grape juice" this year. Clarification - gives her a stomach ache. Sigh.
I don't recall seeing your request to withdraw from school nursing come across the committee's desk for approval...
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...
