I was called for a high school today that I haven't worked since I was oriented 3 yrs ago. I decided that today wasn't a good day to start between senioritis and the June Bug (I love that!)Add in the fact that I'm theoretically supposed to be the attendance person. NOPE! someone who's been there numerous times is doing it, thankfully!

Yesterday, a teacher sent a student to my office when he developed a bloody nose during a final. He had a bloody nose in class, but after wiping it with tissues it stopped almost immediately. When he arrived, he was holding the bloody tissues (spotty, not saturated) and says:

"My teacher told me to come up here to throw my tissues out in your garbage can." 

I had to restrain myself from writing a crazy email to said teacher, but gracias a dios, she is not coming back next year so I let it go.

Really??? It amazes me that some teachers can reply all to every single staff e-mail, send funny jokes daily, try to sell their furniture, get rid of their pet, etc.

HOWEVER, they are too busy to ever write a nurse pass!!!

Makes me mad as a sub too. Teachers know them better than I do and that pass gives me a clue, or at least the proof the math teacher knows they're at the nurse.

I'd be furious. How dare they do that without inviting everyone! What kind of critters? I'm at the museum today. All the critters here are dead. None of them got any younger since last year!

This made me laugh.  A couple of years ago we took our kids to Chicago for, what we thought would be, a fun weekend of museums, zoos, activities as a family.  Our little guy was about 7 at the time.  We were at the Science & Industry Museum - specifically for him because he was a dinosaur freak - and he was pouting and griping the whole time...I was really getting annoyed.  I asked him, "What is your problem?!?!"  His response was, "I'm so bored...everything is dead."  Well, yeah...dinos are long dead.

A third grade student with severe bee and wasp allergies just walked into my office and gave my his epi pen that Mom just dropped off.  We have two weeks of school left and I have been trying to get his mom to bring in an epi pen since Late August!  Better late than dead I guess. C'mon now!

One of my darling 9th-graders just came in requesting an ice pack, because "he/she hit their face on a wall".  No bruises or marks, no evidence of a need for an ice pack, "but it hurts, miss!".  I agreed to give them one, with the caveat that this is the only one they will be getting from me for this "injury".  This kid makes every excuse under the sun to leave class and come to the clinic, and with three half-days for finals this week, I can't wait to see what else I'll get to see them for.

Your students just call you "miss" as well? I thought it was just at my school :).

Kindergarteners touched a dead bat at recess.  I had to have the "we don't touch dead animals" discussion with them.🤦‍♀️

Ended up just being a huge monster moth...but still...

No one bothered to get that memo to me until after I'd called our head of building & grounds and the county health department - who was in the middle of telling me that,  depending on how decomposed it was, we probably needed to put it in the fridge to have it tested.  Would have been good to know before that call.  😂

OH MY GOODNESS!  Thank God it was just a moth.
