I work in a city with very fluctuating socioeconomic issues but overall low income school district. Over 40 schools and some have WAY better PTAs therefore nurses can request items that usually get approved. My PTA is almost non existent.
I have no budget but we get very basic supplies like bandaids, H2O2, caladryl. We do hav an Epi and Narcan, manual BP cuff, Oral and temporal thermometers.
I get assistance from kind teachers, my principal bought some nit combs because MUTANT ninja lice really are that bad I am putting aside paperwork to comb heads. I am a single parent trying to juggle 2 part time/per diem gigs in addition to this. I cannot afford to spare much but my son's outgrown clothes, occasional dollar store bag of peppermimts. I'm going to look into donorchoose because that would be great. A magic wand to cure all imaginary ails would be fantastic to have!
