Plans for schools

A question for those who have received plans for reopening your schools. Will you have a full time nurse? I know that due to previous cutbacks, some districts eliminated nurses' positions. Will they be reinstated?

All of our elementary schools in my district have full time nurses. They are all returning.

Each of the 8 buildings in my district has a nurse and they are going to be hiring more of them. They will also hire more teaching assistants and other support staff.

All schools PK-12 in my district have full time nurses everyday.

We always had full time nurses in all schools.

That's a good question. We are a large district and for a number of years each school has a full-time nurse IF there are enough nurses available. The one currently assigned to our school at times was pulled to help another school until they could fill the position. Then the secretary would fill in.

Having enough bus drivers is always a challenge. It should be quite interesting this year.

I always had a thermometer with shields in the classroom. It enabled me to know if the child really was sick or just trying to put one over on me. It certainly cut down on the number of fakers. If I were still in the classroom I would be sure to have double the number of shields whether or not temperatures are taken at the door. Even better would be if the PTA were able to supply every teacher with an instant read, no touching thermometer, with extra batteries!

no site-based nurses

We have "health clerks." These are people with no actual medical training, just CPR, first aid, and the automatic defibrillator.

There is one district nurse.

No one has mentioned how this will play into the reopening plans.

Yes, we had a full time nurse and will have one again this year. She's new this year, so not only will she be learning the students, but she'll be learning with all the new Covid guidelines.

I can't imagine how they'd cut them out. She won't have Covid tests, but students will go to her if they run a fever and she'll call parents to pick them up. Where else would they go if they run a fever? The office?
