I am getting over a head cold, but I happen to still be coughing on and off. I've had FOUR different teachers pop their heads in and ask if I was going home. And one tattled to my principal who came to talk to me and ended our conversation with "Remember you have unlimited sick days"...
Also, it must have gone around that I'm feeling under the weather, because instead of the 50+ I usually have by now, I've seen less than 20...which has NEVER happened before today.
taken off for a cold before, growing up or professionally, but I am new to the world of schools
...is this something that's normal to take off for in a school setting? or are my teachers just hypochondriacs?
