So- one of the boys has AgriScience this year. They’re apparently going to be working with honey bees and I’m supposed to sign a waiver that covers various things, including the statement “my child has no known allergies to bees”. I normally don’t have a problem signing stuff like this. Today I do. “No KNOWN allergies”: this is true, he doesn’t have any known allergies to bees. But what if he DOES and we don’t know it? What if he gets stung and has a bad reaction? Does the school not know that such reactions can be deadly? I’d feel a lot better if there was a line in this waiver saying “In case of an allergic reaction to a bee sting, there is an EpiPen available for use on site”. I’m not sure how they could actually work that out, but I’d feel a lot better knowing they have an immediate solution right there.. instead of having to rely on an ambulance if something happened. Very conflicted about signing this waiver. :( (Note: They DO have the proper equipment for the kids to wear and use while working with the bees.. I’m still iffy about it. I’ve seen allergic reactions to stings before and it’s scary.)
They also want $20.00 for FFA fees. Excuse me.. he didn’t choose to take this class, IT was assigned to HIM, so shouldn’t FFA membership be optional not required? Why yes, yes it should if you ask me.
Ooooooh. *sigh* Another thing! Since class schedules are set before registration, why can’t they give you a supply list when you register? (High school.) I totally forgot that we need to get a binder and divider tabs. If I’d have known when getting school supplies.. he’d have that stuff already. Grrr. I don’t feel like going out just to get those 2 things. Looks like I have to though, stupid school. I’ll just have to get me some chocolate - or ice cream!!
Alfred Jenkins, ofc.
LOL. Smartass. :P That’s his undercover name! *awards 2,000 internet dollars for the laugh*
Robin Williams it is! *passes out internet dollars like they’re free* (Oh, wait. They are!) I still need to get his eyes just right though. :(
