Don't let her win

You quit, she wins.

OTOH, you take the time you need to recover, you win! And she loses, because she has to do more work.

Your students will survive. Yes, they won't get the best you could...

We all want the same thing

We want what's best for the students. I hear you, and I agree. Not every student is a child in need of special ed services.

If you have often have children scared

How many children?

What percentage of school-aged children have actually seen a bloodied body on campus? If there are kids who have seen such bodies, of course they're scared. If there's been a shooting on their...

If the shipper

wants proof it was delivered (for any reason) they can request (and pay for) a signature. Usually, it's done with something expensive, like an Ipad or computer, but medications seems likely as well.

I call it as I see it.

Some people might call citing FACTS minimizing the problem. Not at all. But it does put the problem in perspective. Children should not be frightened of going to school,...

Then we can sue

All the car manufacturers and booze companies for drunken driver deaths. And the medical costs of alcoholism.
