The students started back to school on Aug 24th. The first week was relatively quiet. We had already been prepped at our Summer Health Institute on what we have to do to try and prevent H1N1. So far so good. Most of the tummy aches were due to starting school nerves, I'm used to handling that. Sometimes a little too good, because they like coming back to see me.
This week was another story. I swear they all forgot how to run over the summer (must of been inside on the computer). We have a new P.E. Coach this year so he is sending everyone in to the Health Room. He says he has already gone though his box bandaids and is going to need more gloves. So maybe I could of seen a lot more! (He's doing great filling out the health slips)
Monday is always the worst day in the Health Room. For some reason coming back to school after the weekend is hard. We saw over 50 students, and today wasn't much better. Now this is common later on in the year, so I can hardly wait to see what it's going to be like. At least not much on H1N1, and thank goodness for those magic bags of ice!
