. . . . it’s time to get back to the grind! It’s a new week
AND a new month. So, let’s get the ball rolling!
Here’s what our community is going through:
100 BRHS, BRES students out with sickness over past week
“Alternative Organizational Structure (AOS) 98
Superintendent Keith Laser released absentee numbers due to sickness for the
week of Jan. 31. Boothbay Region School Nurse Kate Schwehm informed Laser
around 10:30 a.m., 30 students and one staff member were out at Boothbay Region
High School, and 47 students and two staff were out at Boothbay Region
Elementary School.” Read
That’s a LOT
Considering how small our elementary school and high school
are, that’s a LOT of absences. It’s been crazy.
This sickness hit my youngest son first, and then it hit me.
The cough is still hanging onto my son, which I heard is normal. I’ve talked to
several members of our community with this and they describe this thing lasting
for several weeks. Thankfully, my husband hasn’t gotten this (only the
sniffles) because it hurts his surgery sites to cough hard or get sick to his
stomach (both of which are symptoms or this ridiculousness.).
Overcoming the Challenges
Needless to say, working and doing our taxes has been quite
challenging. I’m still exhausted today, but I’m upright and can breathe. So, I’m
in my office working on assignments. I’m hoping the dose of DayQuil I took will
last until lunch. (My fingers and toes are crossed!)
I’m not giving up, though. I communicated with all of my
clients and, I know I say this a lot, I work with an incredible group of
people. Some of them are experiencing this illness, as well, so those people
are even more understanding.
It’s time to conquer this week! If you’ve also been sick – I
hope you’re feeling better and are ready to hit the ground running!
