I agree!!!! And is it really the end of the world if a parent does not make it to their party? Does a MS kid even want a parent at their party????

At the same time, why is the teacher being so secretive about it???

I suppose they didn't want them to feel left out?? I don't know. We're a really small school. I'm sure there would have been some upset parents if they found out the rest of the school was doing a party but the 6th-7th graders weren't. I don't really know. I just work here ;)

Walked in to school to be notified by secretary of over 10% of students absent. Checked for trends, mostly influenza A.  Sent email to superintendent and health department informing of high absence due to influenza. I sent so many more kids home that morning that 1st and 2nd grade had over half their students home sick. Most of them shouldn't have even come to school that day because they already didn't feel well or mom gave Tylenol (for fever) and told them to tough it out. Called superintendent to notify of high rate of illness, parent noncompliance with fever policy, and that health department recommends closing due to illness. 

Superintendent replies that we're not closing. We can't inconvenience the "healthy" 80% of students. 

Hmm, I think we are inconveniencing the "healthy" 80% by not closing.

Also, custodian told me he's going to start disinfecting door handles "every couple days". 

WHAT?! You don't already disinfect them daily or multiple times daily?

 

Can flu season be over yet???

on the plus side, "party days" seem to cure malingering.  The results are remarkable.

oh, i just royally ticked off a second grader who came in sick and didn't think i'd really send her home.  Fastest recovery ever.  Too bad she actually had a fever and the tylenol mom gave her hadn't kicked in yet.
