3rd recess will be the death of us

This is the "period" where either dd gets hurt or she gets in trouble for breaking rules.  We never get notes though when she is injured.  Today was a good scraped up knee which someone cleaned up and put bandage on.

Wow- At least your child gets recess....most schools here get 10 min in the morning and lunch. that's it. One of many reasons we homeschool.

I would be contacting the school and asking why you aren't being notified of an injury. At least drop a post-it on her homework or something! Geesh...how difficult is that?

We only get notified if it is an injury that requires follow up attention/care.  Things like scrapes and cuts, aren't a big deal to me and happen all of the time.  Not to mention, my kids can tell me how they happened.  I'd hate to be notified over every injury.  *shrugs*

Since she was fine after it (obviously), it is no big deal.   I am glad that with the help from her speech therapy she was able to tell us what happened and clearly an accident.  The ball apparently knocked her over and knocked off her glasses.   The only incident we were upset about was when she came home with a HUGE bruise on her hip and that she wasnt able to tell us how it happened.  Our playground monitors are very overwhelmed so things can get chaotic.

I wouldn't generally be upset about cuts and scrapes eaither but with the risk of infection I'd like to be notified so I could keep an eye on it.

Thank you. We are lucky that dd pointed out the new scrapes to us as soon as she got off the bus.  We will treat it with aloe after her bath tonight.   Her poor knees both have scars on them and she is only in the 1st grade LOL.

That sort of stuff was never a big deal to me either because my son can tell me what happened. Until the school called DCF because of a playground injury they claimed was of unknown origin. 3 visits with them later, including to see their doctor, they filed a neglect claim on the school.

OH man that would stink.   I like documentation for alot of things just so there is a paper trail in case of this happening.  How is your son now?

He's fine. It was just a bruise over his eye from running into another kid and bumping heads. No big deal IMO. He had to have an emergency tooth extraction once from running into a slide face first. He's rough lol.

3 recesses. Awesome. Sorry about the booboos.....I never hear unless they need me to pickup....chipped and bleeding tooth, possible broken arm.....for a head bump they might call me and tell me to watch them. Otherwise they patch them up and I don't know till i see the bandaid or ask why there is a soggy ice pack in the backpack.

We have a full time, real nurse in the building so things like that don't happen.  Every child who visits her office has an incident report filled out on them, so there is always a paper trail.
