    I am sick and created an Aesop absence at 3am. Other times I have used Aesop I have had subs in minutes. However, as of now, I have no sub. Should I try to go to work now myself?? I feel awful and got almost no sleep.

    Stay home. Surely your school has a plan for when a job doesn't get picked up.

    Stay home.

    Worst case scenario is that an administrator takes your class for the day.

    That scenario has literally never once happened in the entire history of my school.

    Stay home. It is not your job to get a sub, it is your job to put in the absense.

    If I am going to a workshop or training and there isn't a sub, I'm expected to go to school; if I'm sick, they need to work it out.

    That is very unfortunate! :(

    I'll admit that subbing for an entire day isn't my most favorite thing to do (mainly because it puts me behind on paperwork and other office duties), but I'd much rather take over a class than split up everyone amongst a bunch of different teachers.

    I have worked for many schools in the course of my career and you are the only administrator I have ever known who subs in the classroom. Kudos to you for putting students first!

    I called in and was told I should come in because they could not find a sub. They said if I was really, really sick and could not come in they would have to cancel preps and pay out all teachers with preps.

    I find this type of thing extremely frustrating! You called in sick because you were sick. IMHO the school should not put pressure on you to come in.

    Did you go in?

    Next time don't call! Don't even check the status of the job. There's a reason they say that ignorance is bliss.

    That is NOT okay.

    In fact, I notice that you're in CA, so this is definitely something that could be brought to the union's attention!
