DD is in 3rd grade. Earlier this week, her teacher called me to say that she had missed some of gym class because they happened to be short staffed (parapros) and no one reminded her to check her BG until she was IN gym class. Her plan states that 10-15 minutes before gym, she needs to check BG and eat 5-10 grams of carb before going to gym. So, they pulled her out of gym, checked BG and had her eat the snack, all the while, missing 15 of a 30 min. gym class. The teacher then told me that the principal has said that Annabelle is old enough to know she needs to be checked. I agree that she should be taking on some of the responsibility, and we are continuously working towards this. To add a side note: This particular gym class had previously been in the afternoon. This particular day was the FIRST day of the change in gym time to morning. I told the teacher, that we are more than willing to support the school. But, that it does take a village.......that the teacher should help her remember to check her BG, if not the parapro. GEEEEEZZZZ. Who/how helps your CWD know when to check BG?
