Guyan went to school today feeling fine. About an hour in (at the end of his geology test), he complained to the teacher that he had a headache. He went down to the office, and his temperature was 99. Given that Cascadia has about 25% of their student body out, and many children have thrown up in their classrooms, they decided it was time to call me. Not a problem--I don't fault them for it.
I picked him up, and took his temperature when we got home. 97. Took it on another thermometer. 97.4. Apparently the boy runs cold. Two hours later--97.1. He's fine.
But he, and his brother, think this is a free day. "Can we play Wii? computer? Watch Flushed Away?" Continued nagging led to the posting of this sign.
