Go to the nurse. - page 5

So I've noticed a lot of students coming to me for things that are somewhat unnecessary. When asked about a situation, I'll ask "Did your tell your teacher?" student : "yes." me: "what did they say?"... Read More

    Flip flops are for pools not for schools!
    Yup, but Coban or athletic tape will help.

    Just had a student brought for me for medication, and I know my kids with medications, she's not one of them. I tell this to the teacher and the teacher asks her "Where's your medicine?"
    Student: "With mommy."
    Teacher: "And where's mommy?"
    Student: "I don't know,I losted her today."

    Me: *Trying sooo hard not to laugh with teacher*

    One of my favorites is,
    Student: I texted my Mom and she is here to pick me up.
    Me: Sooooo what do you want me to do?
    Student:I want you to excuse me!
    Me: Ah NO! I didn't see you and I didn't excuse you!

    That's some guts right there, and disrespect. Did you deal with Mom? My boys would be SO in deep.

    THIS THIS THIS!!! I wont excuse them either. The kids come down, assess, let them rest ( no issues at all) I send them back to class, they text parents. Suddenly parents here to pick up and want me to excuse it. NO WAY. I have made more than my share of enemies these past 2 years in the middle school. AT least with the littles this didnt happen.

    LOOSE TEETH!

    I have one teaching assistant who will bring kids in and show me their hanging-by-a-thread tooth. What am I supposed to do? Foot on chest & yank?

    Our receptionists always send the kid back for a full assessment while they explain our illness policy and our NO PHONES IN CLASS policy to the parents. Still happens.

    All of these make me laugh so hard and feel much less alone.

    Today's "I went for my BSN to..." moment was using a hair dryer to dry a pair of pants because my dryer broke and I know both the little one and the parent would have FREAKED if the pants didn't make it home

    Some of my other top ones are:
    *My teacher needs ice in her cup
    *I want a different band aid for this 3 day old cut
    *"When I do this (insert ridiculous limb stretch here) it hurts"

    I tell this to parents too, and they get mad, but it's my rule and that's how it goes.

    Happens to me as well. But admin is okay with giving a detention. I, thankfully, get to stay out of that discussion.
