My school secretary called me to tell me there is a kindergartner on campus who has hand,foot and mouth disease and is contagious with open sores. She wanted to warn me away from going in the cafeteria or other common student areas for the next 2 weeks since I am pregnant. The office staff and the nurse are very upset that this student is being allowed to be at school while contagious, but they were told because the student has a doctor’s note and no current fever, they have to let him stay. Really?! Hand,Foot and mouth disease like cows get or is that just foot-and-mouth disease? Just another example why working in a school is a crazy experience sometimes! Geez. I hope none of the other little kids get it. Hmmm, couldn’t I use this as an excuse to take some time off work?;) I wish, but at least spring break is only 2.5 weeks away.
