Shel Silverstein Poem

+this post contains an affiliate link+

Has anyone else seen this? ...
  1. Student A walks into your office complaining they are extremely ill & must go home.
  2. Assessment complete-general complaints, no fever, no other signs of being contagious.
  3. Student A denies all comfort measures.
  4. Student A insists a call to parents is made and wants permission to go home.
  5. Parent agrees (or perhaps parent gives in)....
  6. Student A leaves the office and is seen "high-fiving" a friend in the hallway with a great BIG smile!!!
No joke... Seen it happen!!

Reminds me of a great poem by Shel Silverstein!

    Sick by Shel Silverstein

"I cannot go to school today"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
