I had a first grader tell me yesterday that he's had a sore throat "since I was a baby"
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 ...
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?
