I know I?m probably way ahead of time, but I am weird like that. I like to worry about everything. Here is the situation: My DD is in Kindergarten. There is no full time nurse at her school (the nurse only comes once a week). Also, she is the only child with diabetes and she is the first one in a long long time. In fact, the current staff doesn?t remember/know when was the last time they had a kid with diabetes in the school. Right now the teacher assistant is the one that handles all her diabetes care (check BG, bolus for insulin, treat lows, carry supplies to specials, etc). The times that the teacher assistant is pulled out of the class room, her teacher takes charge of ?diabetes duties?, which I know can be stressful considering she has over 20 kids in a classroom that need to be ready to go to lunch, eat snack, go to playground, etc. But since she doesn?t have the responsibility every day then it?s not a big deal. Well, yesterday I was made aware that starting in First grade there is no ?designated? teacher assistant. Apparently the assistants rotate between all the classrooms. So, my question/worry is, what then? Would it be fair/possible for the teacher to have to deal with all the care involve with DD?s diabetes? Should I request the school to assign an assistant to her classroom? Or would it be ok just to train ALL the assistants and then make sure that one is in her classroom to check her BG for lunch, snack and before schools out? I know DD is not ready to have the full responsibility of her BG checks. What are my options?
