Our school district, like many others, is being forced to make major budget cuts. I found out today that our school nurses are on the chopping block. I am so very sad about this possible decision. They are cutting teachers, aides, and nurses. To the best of my knowledge, administration is not being cut. Don't they realize that one anaphylactic reaction in a peanut allergic child that results in injury to that child will create a lawsuit that makes these nurses salaries seem minuscule? But at least our district has it's priorities in line. Athletics, and anything associated with athletics--specifically football--will not be impacted. There is not an eye-rolling smilie big enough to indicate the huge amount of sarcasm I am feeling over that little tidbit.
