Any medication going in and out your office, must be signed in and out by an adult.

Teenage girls are going to get their period every month. Don't be shocked when I won't excuse you from PE because you have cramps, and for God's sake, carry some pads and tampons around with you! No, you can't have a handful of supplies from me, and I don't have pants to give you to wear.

I am not psychic. Do not bring a PK child to the clinic and leave them without a pass. THEY CAN NOT TELL ME THEIR FULL NAME!

Don't know what number we are up to but: Mr. Asst. Principal, I am not the potty police. If you think a kid is abusing hall passes, you can escort him to the toilet. I've got enough kids with legitimate toileting problems rather than your discipline problems.

Phone calls from students do not count as absences from the nurse. If I told you are okay and I even called your mom about it, then no reason to call your grandma to come get you.

**If you tell your child who complains of feeling ill to go to school anyway, but if they start feeling worse to have the nurse call you...they will ALWAYS say they feel worse and want to go home...even if they are happily bouncing around my office, afebrile and full of energy. Kids are not stupid, if they can get a free pass home, they will!

THIS THIS THIS!!!! The famous "get out of school free card" UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
