my sons school are really starting to annoy me, this isnt the 1st post i have made about them!
few weeks ago when we had the snow, both sons were running late and ended up fast walking/running to school so they wernt late.....anyway my middle son who has asthma was abit short of breath when we got to school, in the mad dash he hadnt picked up inhaler for his pocket, so i told him to ask the teacher for the 1 kept at school - teacher said NO, as he didnt need it. I complained to her and said that IF he says he needs it he needs it - he knows. she said she doesnt really want him keeping 1 in his pocket incase anyone takes it.
anyway, since then with this cold weather he has asked teacher more than once IF he could have the inhaler kept at school before playtime/lunchtime/pe and again she has said he doesnt need it and hasnt given it to him.
then today at lunchtime i have received a phonecall from school saying i need to go and collect son as he has been sick. upon getting to the school i asked him if he knew why he had been sick - something he had eaten etc? amongst coughs and shortness of breath he said to my hubby ""no daddy, my chest was sore so i asked my teacher for my inhaler before i went outside, she said i didnt need it and to go and play. i started running around with my friends, started coughing, it was hard to breathe, i coughed more and was sick"". so hubby told the office staff that had he been allowed his inhaler this probably wouldnt have happened, they said that he only has to ask for it, BUT they dont want him in school tomorrow incase its a bug.
son was still half coughing, and not able to say much when he got home (we're 5mins walk from school but hubby went in car). yet within a few mins of him taking his inhaler he was *fine* (well better than he was). even now, he is still coughing and i'm guessing i will have a bad night with him.
has anyone else had similar issues with the school and how did you sort them? i have asked to see the school nurse again and they said she wont be in until April and even then they are not sure IF she has any spaces! there is an action plan in place from school nurse!
