    Hmm, I think I'd call it atrophied testicles...

    OK, then, do this. For each child that comes up, use an average of 5 minutes per phone call (look up the number, make the call usually leaving messages, talking to parent when they call back). Multiply by the number of visits per day, i.e. 30 visits x 5 minutes each equals 150 minutes. Divided by 60 = 2.5 hrs. Per day. Instead of seeing sick children taking care of meds and handing emergencies. Does he really think that is a wise use of your time??? I swear some of these principals have academic smarts but are truly clueless in the real world...
    Good luck!

    I had a 4th grade girl come down the other day to tell me she started her "puberty" today. She assured
    me she had pads and things but just wanted me to know about her "puberty" 😊Was going to tell her teacher too.... Another little boy told me he had a "wandering" rash. I asked him where it wandered to, and he said "I dunno, it's just wandering!" I think we should collectively write a book❤️

    One big problem I already see is that MS and HS now just text their parents to come pick them up if sick. There are no HS or MS nurses, this is new for them. There's going to be a big unhappy shock when students and parents won't be allowed to do this anymore. And who do you think they're going to yell at about it?
    I'm so sad...

    I am being moved in the fall from my beloved elementary school to either middle school or high school. I do have some say which it will be. Which, in your minds, would be a better choice? Pros and cons would be very helpful for me. I have no experience working with these age groups, only the elementary bunch. Neither school has a nurse now, so I'd be starting from the beginning....Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    I think of it this way.....If I see 40 kids/today and 30 were minor booboos and I called on each, that would be 30 calls at a minimum. 30 calls x 3 minutes/call = 90 minutes or 1.5 hrs, just making phone calls! Never mind, the parents that have 2 or 3 different phone numbers you have to call. Nobody is saying any serious injury, or head bumps or anything that leaves a mark shouldn't be brought to parents attention, but geesh!! Is that how they want you spending your time?

    yes, that's what I plan to do. Why do that do they child if it isn't needed. She does not have any medical history indicating need for this that I can see. Just curious.....

    I mentioned this yesterday, but as of today, our school has gone into full day care status. The fidget spinners have been banned from the cafeteria only as of today. As I walked the hall yesterday 2 kids were sitting on the floor playing dueling fidget spinner; they'd get them spinning and crash them into each other. Our Intermediate school has banned them totally without a doctor's order
    OMG I love this!!!! So true!!!!

    8 more days...8 more days...8 more days...

    I hate that as well!
    Or how about, you call because little darling got a bruise or whatever, you get VM, leave a message, then get a nasty note the next day from parent saying how they didn't know their kid got hurt, or a talk from the principal of how you never called to to the parent!
    "Like" one-thousand times over!!!
