Student with acrylic nails that resemble talons: Miss, can you take off my nail, it's bleeding?

Me: Do I look like a nail tech?

Student: I don't know.

Me: No.  I can't do anything about your nail.

Student: Do you have scissors or something so I can take it off?

Me: 

Student: Miss, it's already coming off.  Can I have scissors?

Me: I am not giving you scissors to take off your acrylic nail.

Yep! 2 years for an Associates, 1 year for a BSN, and 2 years of grad school and I'm expected to have the same knowledge/skill set as a nail tech.

C'mon now!

Voicemail from 0750 (school starts at 0845): Good morning...ummm...we were wondering if you could take a look at our 1st grader's index finger. It's swollen and really bruised, so we were hoping you could tell us if it's broken. If it is broken, can you use put a splint on it? Okay...thanks!

This is my life. I had to tell a 2nd grader that I no longer put in earrings. I've seen her at least once a day, but usually 2-3 times because she keeps taking out her earrings. 19 days of school, 39+ earring visits. I started a tally sheet😂

I think once it passed day 3 I would call home and let them know. She needs to hear from multiple adults that earrings stay in all day or not at all. The only time I help with earrings is if the student is really struggling to find the hole and making a bloody (literally) mess or if there are s/s of infection of the hole. Y'know... medical stuff.

In HS, I do V/H on new students. They have now found out where the clinic is. I have a whole new batch of FF. 😣

Unfortunately, it's one of the voicemail is full, email disappears into cyber space parents. I was hoping the multiple conversations I had with the teacher would have cut down on it, but nope.
