I can't believe I'm even considering this, but my daughter wants to go back to school (we've been homeschooling) and we were in the process of finding an alternate school for our son...so we would be looking at enrolling her in that new school, too. The one we like is a small private school. No nurse, no aides. They are willing to accommodate in any way they can and have offered to have everyone trained - all teachers, all office people, all subs, all specials (music, art, gym, etc.) It reminds me of our old daycare days, to be honest. The class size is limited to 10-12 students and classroom set-up would encourage observation of high/low behavior. DD is much more accurate at catching lows, although highs are generally missed. The teachers and administration would be able to monitor finger pokes and verify doses in the pump. We would label lunches and snacks, keep a fridge provisioned in the room, have a cell phone in the diabetes bag, be available. It seems so doable. And, to be honest, that scares me. I mean, she's 7 (almost 8 when school starts.) Am I really considering a school without a nurse?? I really like the school. I really don't like the local school...but they would have an in-class aide for her. Anyone out there that opted to use a school without a nurse? Anyone consider it but decided against it? I've thought about it so much that I have worked myself into confusion and would love to hear if others think this is crazy or workable. Feel free to speak up - I'll take opinions on both sides!
