I like my vera temp. I bought it a few years ago to help get tmps on my littles and students with an aversion to getting a temp any other way. Then I realized that it would help cut down on waste when my regular malingerers come in "feeling hot" or having a sniffle and NEEDING to know their temp. I don't know if School health still carries, but you can get it on amazon or walmart.com

I use the SantaMedical RY-230 in our preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade classes. It's usually within 0.2F degrees of my trusty tympanic thermometer and works well enough if it's on the correct "mode" and used properly (scanned at a 3-5cm distance in the temporal region).
