We attend a charter school in FL. We packed most of her lunches last year, but Mia started wanting some of the hot lunches (mostly corn dogs maybe 3 times monthly) the other kindergarteners were eating, every once in a while. I just had a lovely meeting with the dean, guidance counselor and the nurse at her elementary school and was told Mia should not be ordering any hot lunch this year, because it is too complicated to figure out the carb counts. I always put an index card in her lunch box with the carb counts of everything. There was maybe one time the teacher texted me a pic of her hot lunch so I could see how much rice there was and give her an approx. carb count, otherwise I wrote it down. But I guess it's too complicated, so no hot lunch at all for her this year. Also they want her evaluated by a pediatric neurologist because they say she has issues focusing (what diabetic doesn't?). She is 6, 16 months old at diagnosis. And they think she was pulled too often from class last year for checks, boluses, corrections or lows (what was the word they used? overkill), so I need to streamline that process. Also, she needs to be way more independent with her diabetes. Whatever that means. I asked the Dean if she knows how to work an insulin pump. Oh, no? Do you expect a six year old learning her site words will? We gave them a 504 last year and they told me it was unnecessary. Well today they looked me in the eye and told me we absolutely needed a 504 this year, but it would take several months of evaluating Mia's medical and academic needs to piece that together. I have a head ache.
