Stupid, Stupid Week

I need to whine for a minute.

I had six students absent on Monday. SIX.

I had seven students absent on Tuesday.

I had six students absent on Wednesday.

We are core testing this week. That's the big end of level test that pretty much determines everything--sixth grade for them, job stability for me...and they're not here.

My students have had the flu, strep throat, sinus infection, cold, food poisoning and a bee sting swollen to the size of a football.

I only have three students absent today, but there are four that I'm fairly certain should not be here, either.

I don't want to be in the same room with them.

I'm sorry Laura... I wouldn't want to be in the same room with them either. School should just officially be cancelled for the rest of the school year. (but you should still be getting paid for it) :)

That totally bites, I am sorry! On the bright side the school year isn't too much longer! Good Luck!!

Okay, so I TRULY can feel your pain. I didn't know that it was core testing (when you told me about all the absentees). That is HORRIBLE! Thanks for coming to book club, it was VERY fun. :)
