I tried to sign dd up for religious ed classes. I explained her allergies to the director of religious ed. She said, "We do have another child who drops off an epipen in the office--not that I'd know how to use it." My jaw fell to the floor. I explained that wasn't good enough.

The director said, "We have a wonderful teacher who happens to be a nurse. She teaches the students who are in xx grade and she will be here on Tuesdays. I suggest you sign your daughter up for Tuesdays." I said O.K., but then hesitated.

She said, "You could remain in the building if you'd like, but that teacher is very nice and I'm sure you'd be more comfortable knowing that she is in the building."

Ummm...yeah. I think I will sign dd up for Tuesdays, but this nurse isn't there as a nurse. She is there as a teacher. And how will I know when she is out?

I'm trying to decide what to do. Do I just firm things up with this nurse/teacher and make sure I am notified if she is out? Do I offer to help out in one of the classrooms? Or should I just remain in the building and explain to dd's teacher that they NEED to get me if something happens? What would you do?

Of course, I'm late in signing dd up (don't ask why!) so the office is closed. All communication is being done through the mail at this point.

Why can't things be easy?
