I just finished me first week of classes and everything seems to be going well. But there is this one child who complained of a stomach ache every single day. I sent her to the nurse each day (today the note explained that she seems to have a stomach ache every day). The nurse agreed that the little girl seems fine and was "talking and laughing" in her office. And not 20 minutes after she got back she had a "terrible" bug bite that was really hurting--although I couldn't see even the smallest mark on her when I looked. I think if it happens again on Monday, I'm going to write a note home to Mom. But I wasn't sure exactly what to say. If she really is sick, I want Mom to know, and if it's just an attention thing (or a get out of class thing) I need to put an end to it. It's school policy that if a student goes to the nurse (or anywhere) 2 other students have to go with them. That means 3 students are missing out on instruction every time she's "feeling sick" Any ideas?
