Nursing It

The school nurse sent some tips out to teachers that they can pass along to the students. The first involves the advice of keeping hands away from their face, mouth, eyes or nose. Frankly, I’m never in favor of a practice that increases the chances of the option putting their hands on their junk, but okay. Oh, while we’re at it can we say something about no feet on faces either? I know that scenario should sound ridiculous, but yeah….

Also, she wants us to encourage students not to share towels, pillowcases, washcloths and eye make-up. Again, I would like to add some items because of previous experience. We should also include gum, piercings, condoms and sporks (specifically ones used to scratch aforementioned “junk”) to the list.

Finally, she urges students to avoid physical contact such as hugging and holding hands. Lady, these kids are way past such physical contact. Those activities don’t even register to them. You need to catch up. You might as well ask them to do the Charleston or write a letter.

Being the good team player that I am, I will pass this advice along to the students. I’m telling you right now, though, they will have questions about what they can put on their faces. Yuck.
