High schooler with narcolepsy accidentally took his nighttime med at 0500 (apparently thought the wake up alarm was the med alarm) instead of 2330 like he's supposed to. Mom sent him to school with a quick text to some of his teachers and myself saying he can't miss any more school but that he'll be "in and out of it all day and is having difficulty coordinating his body to walk please don't make him use his fine motor skills" 😐. By the time I got to campus, he was nothing but a snoring blob in the middle of his classroom floor. 3 classmates had to physically pick him up and move him so he wouldn't be stepped on. Dad was super mad he had to come pick him up (I think more so at mom for obvious reasons). But I mean...

C'mon now...

I am so tired of kids telling me they are fine, good to go back to class. Heck, sometimes even telling their parent the same thing on the phone. THEN - 18 minutes later mom is here to pick up because kid is texting from class that their symptoms are so much worse!!! Really??? 

C'MON NOW!!! Then parent asks if they should take them to the doctor. My answer "well, if they deteriorated that quickly in 4 minutes - yes, take them in."

Your money, not mine...........

Student came in and asked for a juice box. "What makes you think I give out juice boxes"  I just saw a student leave with one.  "Well that student has a disease that she would need her parent supplied juice from time to time" (T1D of course).

Please stop sending me all the dress code kids at once. I have one cabinet full of clothes. This just takes away from kids who end up needing it for more health-related reasons. Sick of it. Wish admin would do something instead of pawning it off on me.

Principal "Can I ask you a favor?"

Me "Sure!"

P- "Can you watch the front desk for a few minutes while I meet with the office staff for a little holiday celebration? I'll let you have first pick of the breakfast sandwiches"

M "Sure....."

Knowing full well, thosehouly folks almost always get their break and lunch on a very regular basis...I barely get lunch or, if I do, it is at my desk with kids and  staff traipsing in and out oblivious to my full mouth.

 

And no other holiday, school nurses day recognition...there is one of me ....I still get an ecard form the previous principal at all the holidays....
