  2. Passes

    This is what I use and have been using for a few years. It covers the basics and they can write in the rest Nurse Pass.docx
  3. Pandemic or pollen??

    Same! My letter board at home says "May: not Winter, not Summer, all pollen!"
  4. The New Girl To School Nursing

    You can check your county health department for posters too! Some will send them for shipping only, some you can print out on your own. The Allegheny County Health Dept. has some good ones.
  5. Happy Nurse's week.... I guess

    I got a card from social committee on Administrative Assistants' Day because "We won't remember you if we don't give it to you today"? Thanks...I guess I grabbed cards at Dollar Tree to send to my fellow nurses. We always remember one another
  6. C'Mon Now!

    Has anyone else noticed the hashtags that were added to this topic? # school kids is fine, but # bad kids is not okay. I don't think any of us would ever refer to our kids as "bad". Bad behavior, sure; bad choice, absolutely: bad kids, nope AllN...
  7. C'Mon Now!

    We had a parent send her close contact kid to school the next day. She insisted he wasn't a close contact because it wasn't a school activity, so "it's illegal" for us to exclude him. She was also mad that we knew he was a close contact because she w...
  8. C'Mon Now!

    63 nonsense visits, 4 legit visits, a dozen meds, 1 hour and 40 minutes of contact tracing and phone calls, and one 9pm email from a teacher who "forgot" to include the students sitting by my positive case. Is it Summer yet?! Today's winner is t...
  9. C'Mon Now!

    4th grade boy comes in pretty frantic: Look at my arm! It's bright pink. It's hot. It's super, super itchy! Me: Lemme see...? 4th: ? it's not funny. It really itches! I could be having an allergic reaction Me: ooorrr...it could be pink...
  10. Got My Vaccine Yesterday

    I got my 1st Moderna on Jan 15th. On Jan 21st, one lymph node near my clavicle and one under my arm, started swelling. They hurt a ton and are the size of a clementine and half a fast pitch softball. I have a follow up with my PCP today because the s...
  11. Voluntary Post-Thanksgiving Quarantine?

    The wording that we are going with when parents ask about out of state travel or when we hear about out of state travel is "The health department strongly recommends a self-quarantine period of 14 days following out of state travel. While this is not...
  12. Staff Burnout

    Our teachers are overscheduled too. It seems like every minute is filled with meetings, zoom calls, webinars... It's too much. We are in person 4 days a week with a virtual day on Wednesday. There's a lot of emotional labor this year.
  13. SPED

    If I had a dollar for every kid that "just doesn't seem like himself today", I could retire tomorrow. I got called to the sensory room to check on a kid...the reason...he took off his shoes. No symptoms, no complaints, just took off his shoes?‍♀️
  14. Smelly mask syndrome is my new favorite. It's a disorder of denial, often found in elementary aged children who insist that their mask smells awful, the new mask also smells awful, the 3rd mask smells bad too...this smell is cannot possibly be relate...
  15. Are your kids back to school full time in person?

    Our elementary schools are back in person 4 days a week and we've had 1 positive in nearly 900 students. Our county numbers have been low since August and have continued to stay at that "green" level. Our classes have between 16 and 22 students; abou...
