This week, Teacher X issued Bubs detention bc visit nurse during X class re hypoglycemia too many times. Bubs vaguely annoyed, very confused. Meanwhile crème brûlée torches shoot flames out from sockets where Bigfoot eyes belong.
Of course Bigfoot send email, inquire WTF but w. restraint:
Hi Mrs. X,
UPDATE, the next day, FWIW:
I sent something like what Autumn suggested, but slightly whimpier:
Hi again. So sorry. I don’t think I’m understanding what B should be doing differently if he needs to see the nurse during Class X. He has the impression he has done something wrong, and wishes to not repeat that.
I guess what we’re looking for is some description of your expectation, so B can try to meet it. We’d love to be able to help him with that from this end.
Ideally, he’ll never have hypoglycemia during your class again, but just in case…we’d love to know what you would like him to do. Thanks!
And Mrs. X replied with a reply with sentences! It turns out her issue was with B not getting the correct kind of hall pass. I am going to choose to think that she has T1d herself and is extra-bending-over-backwards to not treat him differently from other kids (due to Scott E-like feelings of fury when treated differently at school), and so…since she is a hall pass stickler, she’s going to be a pass stickler with B. Or, in the likely event that hypothesis is not correct, I am going to assume she is a pass stickler for some intense safety reason. (Maybe years ago she lost track of a child who is still missing.) And it wasn’t like he didn’t get a pass because he was rushing to the nurse in a hypo-frenzy, he just didn’t take the get-a-pass thing seriously since his other teachers are more casual about them.
There is so much good advice in the comments. I feel like I’m already too deep into this to start doing it right paperwork/504-wise. If I could start over from scratch, I would. Ideally I would do what Pam did.
