So frustrating! This is the week before school, so I went in to find out who DD's teacher will be so I could make an appointment to meet with her about DD's diabetes. The decision (of who her teacher will be) will not be made until Wednesday, "hopefully." We are supposed to find out who it is on Thursday. Friday is a mandatory furlough day and Monday is a holiday. School starts on Tuesday. My only hope and prayer is that maybe the teacher will be able to meet with us on Thursday afternoon/evening? Otherwise, I can't send a child with diabetes off to school all day with a caregiver (teacher) who has no idea of what to look for to know if my child needs help; so I guess the teacher is going to have a classroom helper on Tuesday...ME! Not that I mind helping in the class, but it's just so frustrating that the school is not willing to work with us a little more. Last year, they made the decision (of which teacher she would have) for my child in advance, but this year they seem unwilling to do that. (As least the secretary who was in today was unwilling.) I have a call in to the district nurse (we have a great relationship from last year) to find out what she feels is the best course of action for getting the teacher trained before the first day of school. I am just frustrated and disappointed. We had very few and minor problems with the school last year, and I was expecting the same this year. Now I am more stressed. Ok, deep breath, rant over.
