Does your district "tell" you when you cannot take a sick day because of lack of subs? Occasionally, we will get emails from our administrator saying that "Thursday we already have a lot of subs. Please don't call in sick." I feel like this is a violation of our contract. I mean, other jobs don't say "You can't take a sick day." An honestly...when I get those emails, it really makes me want to call in sick (especially since I have been feeling crappy lately). A couple of years ago they hadn't "warned" us, and I called in because I had the stomach flu. They said "Well, we are really short on subs. Can't you try to make it in?" My response was, "Unless you want me to carry around a garbage can all day...no." They found me a sub.

Just wondering if it only happened here or other places too.

We will get an email asking that we only call in if there is an emergency because there are no more subs for a certain day.

We also were told when subs were gone. Also, if whatever the magic number was for personal day requests was reached, we also were told when we couldn't request those. If an emergency came up, then special teachers were pulled into classrooms. We suggested numerous times that an administrator could sub and keep the special teachers on schedule - you KNOW how far that went.

Mine has said that for personal days--and denied people personal days for that reason. But they have never denied me a sick day. I'm also not someone to just take a sick day...I'm usually that person who has to be SENT home sick.

contracts are for. If you are legitimately sick and have a doctors note than there is nothing that the admin can do. Don't know if you are unionized but call your union if you are. I know that it doesn't happen up here but we have a contract and a strong union. I know that if longer then three days we must produce a note.
