Okay, so this morning I have sent one home already, even though I did not have a "reason" to. Kindergarten student brings a note from home saying she has an earache and if she gets worse to call. Well at 7:30 am she comes to me with the note I look in her ears, check temp and observe her. Nosigns of redness or distress. I send her back to class. She is back at 8:00 am because she has been crying the whole time and is disrupting class. The only thing is that once she is in my office all crying stops. I go ahead and call mom. Her teacher has just lost her dad suddenly and I know that she cannot handle this. Was I wrong to send her home? There was no redness in her ears,and she is one of my drama queens I feel bad about sending her home but I knew she would be in my office every 30 minutes if I didn't. Why do parents do this? If I tell my child this well guess what they will call home!!! Some days it just isn't worth the hassle!
