Please Explain This To Me.

When you send a kid (Bear) to school on the day of the school's H1N1 vaccine clinic, and they refuse to give her the vaccine because they say she has a temperature over 100 degrees (which they take three times to verify)...

Would you not expect them to send that kid home from school? Or at least call me to let me know?

Nope. I found out when I picked her up after school.

I'm baffled.

I don't understand it either.

That doesn't make sense. Our school nurse and principal called parents if there was any kind of a problem and our school has approx. 625 kids. Believe me, I remember that day; it was a crazy one. Is your school nurse normally noncommunicative? Maybe there was a helper nurse who didn't follow through, but it sounds weird.

I would ask the school for an explanation. They shouldn't have kept her at school if they thought she had a fever. Very strange!

I'm just checking to see if this message goes through as being from Nana.

The school nurse is awesome, but the kids were all bused to another school in our district, so I'm really not clear on who did the temperature-taking.

That makes no sense at all.

A call would have been nice.I would have not been happy either. Was it the school nurse giving the injections or and outside company. If so they may not have communicated her temp to the school nurse.

Oh my! Yes, that sounds about right for the school system these days. Sad, isn't it?

Just getting caught up with you. You have been terribly busy!! And here I thought I was silly for having the yard landscaped during the rainy month (note: dogs and mud, 'nuff said). Nope, you've beat that. Good on ya!

Please don't have a break down. I would miss you sorely. :)
