43. Sorry, that won't fly. The schools generally EXPELL any student found

to have given prescription meds to other students on school grounds.

The school go so far as to deny students the the right to supervise their own meds on the campus. The parents have to bring the meds in to the school office or clinic along with copius paperwork inclduing the doctor's signature. Then when it is time for the student to take the meds, the student presents him/herself to the office and the nurse or appointed school personnel dispenses the meds to the student.

Ergo, if the student had prescription meds in school, it would be the parent's fault, not the school's.

Someone is always trying to appropriate serious money needed for the kids education without any thought to the consequenses of the kids.

why is the school responsible for what you/your daughter's friends do? nt msongs Feb 2012 #1
They are supposed to be supervising while on school grounds. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #2
That would surely involve the use of surveillance cameras EVERYWHERE on campus.. left coaster Feb 2012 #5
It would depend how obvious it was. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #9
So you expect a gym teacher Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #64
Read the OP. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #65
Your definition of "out in plain sight" is vague Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #70
I believe plain sight has a pretty specific definition. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #73

Thanks! Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #83
If you say so. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #86
How are they supposed to know everything that goes on on school grounds? montanto Feb 2012 #7
So if it happened in your daughter's bedroom, you'd blame yourself? muriel_volestrangler Feb 2012 #13
If it happened in my living room while we were watching TV then yes. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #17
If they were supervising in a manner that would guarantee that such a thing could not happen... HuckleB Feb 2012 #29
You know how many kids have sex in middle schools and high schools every day? XemaSab Feb 2012 #31
During class? If they're missing that then I can see the problem. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #41

That makes sense. Thanks for the clarification. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #46
Deep pockets. ohiosmith Feb 2012 #3
I agree completely. nt madmax Feb 2012 #27
Exactly. HuckleB Feb 2012 #28
So you would sue a school girl for being ignorant while trying to help your daughter? yellowcanine Feb 2012 #4
Ignorance is not an excuse. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #6
Bad examples. Plumbers and doctors are paid professionals. A school girl is .....a school girl. yellowcanine Feb 2012 #57
Then it's even worse because they have no technical skills. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #58
You are a seriously confused person. yellowcanine Feb 2012 #59
Try opening a DU thread saying that you are having strange symptoms and ask Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #60
Some people see dollar signs in everything. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #11
Yes. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #14
You mean like the ignorance your daughter demonstrated Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #66
And I would take that into account. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #72
And then I assume you would also then compensate Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #77
Doesn't quite work that way. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #78
Drunk driving is illegal Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #81
They might. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #85
If they had time to react and didn't Kellerfeller Feb 2012 #96
Not necessarily. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #98
Yeah... ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #8
And sometimes that is how OP's are born. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #10
Not really. But we can disagree. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #15
Is there really ever a net? Can you quantify emotional damage? nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #18
Can you quantify the crappy state of existence that your world of constant lawsuits would create? HuckleB Feb 2012 #32
I can form an opinion. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #34
That's fine. Until it happens to the next person with different results. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #37
The world you want would lead to some rather horrific results and costs. HuckleB Feb 2012 #39
Sounds like libertarian bullhockey to me. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #40
Hardly. HuckleB Feb 2012 #42
I believe in accidents. Sorry, but I am not sue crazy. And there is no ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #48
So you at lease required a review of the prep nurses procedures by the hospital? Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #50
What happened to me was sorry enough. Thank you for caring. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #52
Suing someone will definitely force the hospital to fire someone who is not competent. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #53
We will have to agree to disagree on this. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #54
I hope so and I hope it was not a training issue. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #55
It was an oversight, due to rushing in the early AM, which they acknowledged. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #56
Umm... oh never mind. PotatoChip Feb 2012 #61
You can ask anything. ScreamingMeemie Feb 2012 #62
No PotatoChip Feb 2012 #63
i would sue if and only if actual damage resulted slackmaster Feb 2012 #12
Agreed. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #16
Why not tell people the facts of your hypotheical. That this thread was influence by this one; Justice wanted Feb 2012 #19
If the young girl 1 asked for something because she didn't feel well and the girl 2, gave it southernyankeebelle Feb 2012 #20
True. I would hold them partially responsible. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #21
If girl 1 didn't feel well she should of asked her teacher if she could go to the nurse. southernyankeebelle Feb 2012 #22
Absolutely. nt Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #23
Most schools don't have nurses, or anyone who fills that role. CaliforniaPeggy Feb 2012 #24
Go to the office ask the adminstrator at the front if you can call your parent because you are ill. southernyankeebelle Feb 2012 #25
That would probably work. CaliforniaPeggy Feb 2012 #26
I think so also. However, if the school wouldn't let her call her parent and my child got southernyankeebelle Feb 2012 #30
You ever had an asthma attack? JoePhilly Feb 2012 #82

Yes, but you are an adult. JoePhilly Feb 2012 #107

How does it being in gym class make it any different than any other time? HuckleB Feb 2012 #33
You don't see any difference between being in a supervised class setting and Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #36
Gym class can be spread out a great deal. HuckleB Feb 2012 #38
True, but I believe this was out in the open during the class. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #47
How would anyone know? HuckleB Feb 2012 #49
I changed my OP because you convinced me. Snake Alchemist Feb 2012 #51
I think you should also burn the buildings and salt the fields REP Feb 2012 #35
