I know this has been discussed before, but I have a 5th grade girl who comes to school reeking of B.O. It is not just after vigorous activity, but right when we walk into the classroom.


Our school nurse is kind of ditzy and I'm sure she would tell the student that I was the one who sent her up for a talk.


I've already spoken with everyone about deodorant and changing bodies. Not sure what else to do...

Is it a poverty situation? It could be from not washing clothes, rather than not wearing deodorant.

I knew a fifth grade teacher who would give each student a mini deodorant after talking to the class about body odor. I believe the deodorants were a donation.

Counselor?

If you don't think the nurse will keep it confidential, do you think the counselor would talk to her? Or could someone, nurse, counselor, school pyschologist or social worker make a call home?

I took some words from the previous thread and sent Mom a message through our grading platform. I hope I hear back, or at least see (smell ) an improvement.
