Just Can't Make This Up

Parents show up on campus to tell me their son tested positive???

Uuggg!

Our illness guidelines this whole year, if you are sent home sick with Covid symptoms, return after ten days, a negative Covid test or alternate diagnosis from Dr.? Five months of this. Mom calls yesterday, "I know that you said ten days but?I don't want to test him or take him to the Dr. and?he is feeling a little better, can he come back today?

No, just no! And still No! Not even ten days unless he is feeling a lot better please.

My favorite one yesterday was....Why does he have to be out longer than his positive sister........( she was trying to use the excuse that they have been split between mom and dads house.? sorry mom they played basketball in the school gym on Thursday night before testing positive Friday)so I start explaining, and I said wait didn't you take him to be tested. do you have those results?? Mom says no not yet.? I told her call me back when you get those results and then we can have this discussion.? Not 2 hours later and stated he was negative and Mom herself was positive.? Yes ma'am His date remains the same.

When we first returned to school face to face in October, I had a teacher tell me that her student's mom was home sick with Covid-19 and said student was in class. Called mom, who insisted her daughter has been living with an aunt, and her other with her father since before she caught Covid so there was no chance of the children getting it.? The next day, older daughter wasn't in school but logged online, and told the teacher was going to be virtual for the next 2 weeks. I called mom and she said that the aunt's car broke down, and since she's sick she can't risk exposing her by bringing her to school.?

Got a call the next day reporting that the daughter tested positive for Covid and flu.??

When daughter came back to school, I asked her if she was living with her aunt or her mom. She told me she has always lived with her mom and that her mom thought if she stayed in her bedroom she wouldn't spread it. The only true thing she told me was that the younger sibling had been living with her father all Summer and hadn't been exposed.?

I don't trust the 'oh they've been separated since before'.? The above story is not the only lie.?

I don't know why people do this!! We are still fully remote, but when we go back I can totally see this happening...parents show up here (still!!) everyday asking how to work the iPad or Chromebook!?

We have been f2f since August about 10% of students are still working from home. It has been an adventure for sure.

Today I had a Mom fill out a student's health questionnaire as all clear. Student was fine at check in, no fever.

Learn two hours later after the Tylenol mom gave the student that morning started to wear off - Temp 99 (and likely rising), severe sore throat, headache.

How did we know this? Student goes into the bathroom, calls mom to tell her she doesn't feel well. Mom calls school to tell front office her kid called her from the bathroom, sick, and probably has COVID. (Fun times in the office with that one...)

Only plus was it was COVID testing day on campus, so got a sample from the student to run the individual PCR on before the Tylenol started to wear off.

But still....really? Really?

We had a mom show up in person with one of her kids on covid testing day saying "I want to make sure he has covid since the rest of the family has already tested positive". ?Indeed he did.

I had a parent send in a student while he was waiting for his covid test results... of course, they were positive and of course, it was a middle school student who mixes with dozens of kids all day.??

So, these parents were doing a "mobile quarantine"...?

Every.Damn. Day.

Custodian comes in ill (evening shift) and?rapid test positive in my clinic - "I only go home and to school, husband too, we don't mix with anyone."? However they all sit at the same table for meals - mask off, less than 6 feet away, longer than 15 minutes.? All custodians on quarantine because they ironically did a deep clean and worked closely together all weekend.? She called into supervisor Saturday, who told her to push through.? Same supervisor did same thing this Summer and 3 custodians tested positive.? I am pi$$ED that this supervisor abuses these vulnerable staff.? They are one of THE infection control pieces we have.? They said they are vaguely threatened with their jobs.? Wrote a scathing email to everyone up the chain.?

"These people are frightened about the virus SECONDARY to losing their jobs."?

UGH x 1000 here.?

This is so true for so. many. people. Working when sick because they don't get enough sick time, or if they do, they feel like the might actually get fired if they actually use it.?

We need to change this. The one thing I want to come out of this is to stay home if you are sick. To get the paid sick time to do so. To be supported by your manager when you need to. I'm been pushing this all year.

When I first started and they were talking about COVID leave, they said unlimited paid leave if due to in school transmission/exposure?(testing positive or needing to quarantine). I just shook my head and say "no" to that - some times we may never be able to fully determine if in school transmission and it is in our community. Even those who are more careful have gotten it.? Some staff members need to quarantine/stay home when a child was exposed at school as well. Folks did listen and now it is just COVID leave, no matter where transmission/exposure occurred.?

Curious.? What does the Tylenol do for PCR testing.? Is it a pain issue?

Oh, nothing. Is this statement, I meant we had already gotten the PCR sample earlier in the day before the Tylenol wore off to re-reveal the symptoms.
