This was my fight last year. I took all the advice on this board, and I swear I had nightmares about ice packs. One member of our staff has access to my office (it's supposed to be for "emergency reasons"--getting stock epi mostly if it's before/after school hours) but they're notorious for overstepping their boundaries and giving out my ice packs, heat packs, field trip bags, etc and then having a big dumb look on their face and going "HUH?" when I tell them not to give out non-emergency supplies without my approval. I repeat over and over "if they aren't bleeding, barfing, on the floor crying, or not breathing it's not an emergency." They have my cell phone number! They can call! Anyways, I suspect they were giving my ice packs away to before school sports and then denying it. This year I was approved to buy an ice machine, so I just give away sandwich bags of ice. It's funny to me now how much I freaked out about ICE PACKS!
