We will be at Myrtle this year too! I'm already dreaming about my toes being ion the sand!!
i do have an autistic class - 3 actually. I gotta say - the class for the older kids got a new teacher and since my time in dealing with that classroom has plummeted. The others are actually pretty sparse too. I am fortunate in that my staff recognizes that these children have behaviors that include making themselves vomit - sure not every vomit is a behavior and some of these children eat strange soft diets resulting in consistent soft stools - but when they come to me because their stool is liquid and peeling the paint off the wall, i'm good with sending the kiddos home.
I think we're all in a good place right now.
Dang! Poor kiddo I'm glad she wasn't in too much pain. What a trooper!!
You did the right thing. Only when we set reasonable boundaries will the staff "get it."
Poop on a shoe is not a medical issue.
Nor is the hem of a dress coming loose.
Nor are broken glasses. (I am terrible at trying to fix them anyway.)
I'd thought the same thing. I don't see this issue as a nurse responsibility, but I consider it inevitable that you'll be pulled into it. If transgender students already use the school nurse bathroom, then you are in effect already involved.
It's so complicated.
i totally get that. I discussed with the IT guy about ways of being able to call parents from a numbers that wasn't the school's but also not my cell- he tried to explain Google voice to me. Doesn't sounds like it would necessarily help your particular situation right now, but i did think about it for the future. I still don't think i totally get it though.
I have a few parents that really only text - some due to Deafness, some due to lord only knows why - contacting them is a pain right in the rear end. When i was in walmart the other day, I sincerely thought about investing in a burner phone for work purposes...
