    "I think we should cut it off."

    "Ugh...You're killing me, smalls!"

    "FLUSH THE TOILET!"

    I don't think these are the things you were looking for, but ya know...

    Common phrases:

    "you're fine"
    "drink some water and go back to class"
    "does your teacher know you are here"?

    "how long have you had a headache?"
    "did you tell a parent about ________?"
    "why don't you rest a few minutes and see how you feel?"

    In notes I use the words headache, stomachache, deformity, bruising, swelling, ice pack, and "ambulatory without limp" quite a bit. Also "student rests, reports relief, is returned to class" gets thrown around a lot in here.

    Go back to class.
    Please walk in the hallway.
    Yes you may use my restroom.
    Go back and wash your hands, please.
