Just got off the phone with a parent of one of my asthmatic kinders. Found out the teacher didn't send them down to me to use their inhaler because "they weren't coughing. It's been my experience with my own kids that if they're not coughing, they don't need their inhaler". Um. What? Quick convo with the teacher and they now know that any request to see me and/or use a PRN medication is to be allowed to come down. Nursing assessment included free of charge...

Yet, probably the exact teacher that will refuse to give a band-aid for a hangnail!!!

Even when all of my respiratory assessment findings are normal, if a kid says they feel SOB, tight, etc. and ask for their inhaler - I let them have it.

A kid going on a field trip allegedly fell onto one of the bike racks immediately prior to boarding the bus. He had a 1-2 cm abrasion to the corner of an eye. They did not stop the line to have me check him out. I found out about this at 3:25 that day. They didn't send him "because he wasn't complaining." I actually do chalk this up to the teacher who doesn't have kids....a teacher with kids would know that anytime a kid's going home with a mark on him/her a parent would want to know why.

The librarian comes to me this morning to let me know that kids were saying another kid picked up a robin's egg and licked it.  Kid confirms this.  😐

This is exactly what I told the mom too! I don't care if they come in bouncing off the walls and laughing with their friends. If they tell me they feel they need it, they get it and my assessment findings get charted!

Sooo... Get out an encyclopedia and look up alternatives to experiencing nature? Or a cookbook?

Teacher sends to the clinic a 3rd grader to "change his short" d/t he had peanut butter on his shirt. I asked the student where he got peanut butter and he said the teacher let them make play-doh with it. I know for a fact there's a student in the class with a severe peanut allergy. 

I have the student that is in the clinic change his shirt and wash his hands, arms and face well with soap and water. I walk the student back to class so I can talk to the teacher.  She admits she allowed peanut butter to be used as an ingredient BUT that she separated the student that with the allergy from the rest of the class and he made his play-doh without peanut butter.  She said she was super careful to assure the other student didn't get peanut butter anywhere. So I asked if she was so super careful how did the one student get peanut butter all over his shirt, hands, arms and face. She said "well I guess he is just messy." I replied that we're dealing with 3rd graders, they are all messy and what about the possibility the students decide to play with peanut butter play-doh and forget to wash their hands. She snaps "I don't know what you expect me to do". I politely told her I expect her to not use peanut butter in any of the play-doh.... to not even have it in her classroom... thus the "peanut nut free zone" sign plastered on the outside of her classroom door! Her reply "Oh"....... Really?!? C'mon now! 

Sometimes I just have to walk away shaking my head, thinking "and these are the people educating our kids".

Who the heck makes play dough out of peanut butter? I hope you reported it to admin after you spoke with the teacher.
