    Rapid testing in schools- any here in MA?

    This is what I would fear! After 8 weeks in, I am finally getting parents to understand the need to keep ill kids home and follow up with their PCP. If they found out we are testing, the lines will be out the door every morning. What are the imp...

    Is it Friday yet?? (a cautionary tale about locked nurse room doors)

    In my soul, I really believe that this would not be done to any other person on a school campus besides the nurse. That is disheartening!! I would find a place where nobody could find me from here on out And to not even have the decency to ask the ...

    Not going on a hunt / wild goose chase among 950 middle school students based on rumors about something that is a nuisance. I feel like I could have actually written this post as I have dealt with the same thing the last few weeks. 3 moms and their d...
