    Medication Pickup Letter

    Does anyone send letters home regarding medication pickup? This year my principal wants me to schedule appointments for parents to pick up medications. I am trying to figure out how to word the medication pickup letter including picking up medications by appointment this year. Does anyone have a similar letter?

    Itchy Casts

    Does anyone have tricks to relieve itching casts? I have tried the blow dryer (on cold setting) and tapping the cast. I am hoping someone on here has found another way that I have not discovered yet.

    Attendance?!?!?

    I have now taken over doing all the attendance for my school due to COVID. Is anyone else doing attendance as well? If so, how are you handling the attendance for students who are quarantined, but are participating virtually in their lessons while they are out??

    C'Mon Now!

    For the record... Crayons are NOT to be put inside your cast to get that itchy spot!! Thankfully I was able to get it out.

    Isolation

    How is everyone handling the isolation room from the CDC? My school has no extra space and building an isolation room in my current office is not feasible.

    Do you think schools will resume this year?

    I am in Florida too and feel the exact same way! I miss my kiddos

    2 weeks closed

    I am closed for 2 weeks as of now, we have not been told if we are getting paid or not. I am also paid hourly, so I am at work trying to gather up things I can do from home to get some hours put in. I am hoping we are not out more than two weeks at this point.

    Stolen supplies

    My PTA gave me 6 large bottles of hand sanitizer that I have written nurse's office only on, which are also kept locked up where I have the only key to where they are locked up.

    Stolen supplies

    ALL of my supplies except bandages, lice sticks, etc. are always under lock and key... Not because of my coworkers, we have a cleaning company that comes in and cleans our school each night.

    How do you get a sub?

    If I know I am going to be out, then I find my own sub ( I only have 2 subs), if it is an emergency then if I cant get a sub, my secretaries will cover for me and call me/the parent if needed.

    Supply Question

    How does everyone get an idea of how much to order for next school year? I feel like my biggest things I go through are Gloves, Probe covers for my thermometer, 2x4 bandages, and cleaning wipes. I feel like I never order enough for the entire year and then i'm scrambling to get more of those items for the remainder of the year. Storage IS an issue for me ( I share an office and I'm pretty sure it was a conference room before I started so it is EXTREMELY small). Any tips or tricks you have would be greatly appreciated!!!
