I have a question for all you parents out there...my son is in 1st grade, and the school he goes to does not allow his insulin pen into the classroom (or specifically to remain in his backpack).
So far this year, he has been bringing his meter (since they want this also not in his backpack) and insulin pen into the nurses office in the morning and then goes into class. However, this has been causing some problems with him being marked "tardy" quite often since for a 7 year old to reach the cabinet and do all the necessary steps to leave his supplies in the office requires a longer time.
I recently met with the school principal to discuss this issue, since I believe my son should be allowed to
A. leave his supplies in his backpack until he is tested at morning recess or B. go to class first, check in with the teacher and then be excused to drop it off. The response we have received is that Austin needs to "step up his morning routine" and "that he is always going to have to deal with accomodating his routine in life."
I am wondering what you all have in place or have gone through, and what I should be thinking as a mother.
