Got Pills?

Lots of drug pushing going on at my school this week. Nope, it's not the kids, it's not their parents, it's not crack, PCP, LSD or anything illegal, it's Lomotil, a magic little white pill that keeps bathroom trips down to a minimum.

The plague that food poisoning wrought is still with us. Teachers are calling in sick the last week of school when grades are due and the checklist has to be completed. Calling in sick when they know that if a sub shows the sub will sub par to the extreme. Missing awards assemblies, end of the year parties and graduations. Getting docked because they are out of sick days.

Both the Principal and the Assistant Principal were out 3 days running. The district sent over a spare AP - seems there is a rule that a campus can't be principalless for more than 2 days. She did nothing but check her e-mail and suspend some kids for fighting.

The fire drill was canceled today. The reason - we have no porta potties on campus!

Never has a last day of school (tomorrow) been more eagerly anticipated!
