    Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    I have been doing the contact tracing and contacting the exposures since the beginning of the school year. Luckily we are a small school. Our health department has been overwhelmed, it finally got to the point where they told me just tell the...

    Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    At the risk of sounding trite... Non medical admin. really need to stay in their lanes. Things go sideways and we have to try and set it straight. It takes one penny to derail a train and takes several cranes to put it back on its tracks.

    Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    Clinic Survey on school website

    @Eleven011 We are a small private school so we are fortunate enough to provide computers to every student. As bad as this is to say I have a lot of spoiled teenagers that go to this school who run their households not the parents. The ho...

    Vague Absence Notes of illness

    Fortunately or Unfortunately our student never had snow days/ inclement weather days. We have been doing Digital learning for years. They do at least one a month just to keep up with it. So when the pandemic hit they didn't miss a beat. Even...

    Clinic Survey on school website

    Because communication is soooooooo wonderful (you hear my sarcasm right).... I pitched something to my principle. How about/ Can we put a button on our website that the parents can push to send a message directly to me when their student is sick. ...

    Vague Absence Notes of illness

    Well I just became "that nurse" we had a student test positive over the weekend. Student (frequent flyer) came down with no real complaints and nothing to even send up a red flag. I sent him back to class and didn't see the student the rest of the...

    Staff getting overly involved

    I too work in a private school and the teachers try to get more information than need. My principle sometime pulls the Loco parentis part of FERPA. When that happens I just say I still can't tell you since I can't even tell their parents since we a...

    Vague Absence Notes of illness

    This has been a crazy/ stressful year. I am willing to bet that more than half of our "illness", "not feeling well" and "sick" are I just don't feel like coming in today. The worst part is that the parents are the ones enabling them to do this. ...

    Vague Absence Notes of illness

    we are doing the same and it is a nightmare! They were given the option if they stay home due to "not feeling well" but can still attend class they can do it virtually, So I am finding that almost everyday I am contacting someone as to why they are...

    Vague Absence Notes of illness

    If I have never talked to the parent I am calling the first time, but after that it is an email getting them to explain what the illness is. I am starting to get repeat "offenders" that just want to stay home cause they aren't "feeling it today" and...
