Oh, my. I had my first Doomsdayer today. My little diabetic guy came to me all in a dither this morning because he heard the world was going to end today 12/12/12. I didn't bother to tell him it's actually 12/21/12...his blood sugar was over 160, he was so upset! In the end, I told him the world isn't going to end any time soon. Let's just get through the Christmas break first...

Then I saw one of my little 1st graders, 2nd day in a row, c/o sore throat. He had fallen asleep in class and when he woke up he said he had a headache. So I asked him, like I always do "Why do you think you have a headache?" Answer: "I was having a bad dream. You know that dream, where the pizzas are flying around your head and the crust is all black? I don't ever want to see that kind of pizza again!" Is that the very description of a fever dream or what?! t100+, your ticket home, my friend...

Nutty parent encounter, 7th grader who threw a plastic thingie into the radiator and smoked out the second floor resulting in the fire department coming, the puke bug run rampant, and a teacher who had white patches and green exudate on her tonsils but the principal will not allow her to go home on my word because I can't do a strep test to PROVE she has strep. PLEASE. MAKE. IT. STOP!!!

Really? Wow.

By reading this site you'd think teachers would have a doctor who would fly in on a private jet to take a swab...and do a little plastic surgery for them while they wait for the results...with the great benefits they have and all. :roflmao:

Sometimes my teachers just don't use good sense. I sent one home this a.m. She came to get her temp taken because she didn't feel good. Temp normal, but she casually mentioned that she had a fever of 102.8 yesterday! WTH?? And said she didn't know that district wide policy is stay home until fever free 24 hrs without fever reducing med. Seriously. I went straight to the principal and told her I was sending this teacher home! Principal backed me up, too. :up:
