The worst part is that I was unprepared for this.
It was just a headache. It started Tuesday night, was a bit better Wednesday morning, but as the day wore on it got much worse. So I went home. I just wanted to take some Tylenol and take a nap in the dark to make it better. I woke up to my phone ringing and the dreaded call. “Your principal reported that you have a headache and had to leave school. You will need to get a negative COVID test in order to return.” No rapid results so by the time I could get an appointment it really is useless, the results will not be back by tomorrow morning. Ugh, it NEVER occurred to me. I’m vaccinated so I didn’t even stop to think that this would happen. I would have stayed. Now I have an early spring break that I cannot enjoy because it completely stresses me out that I left so unprepared. I slapped together some review work for my students and need to remind myself that it is out of my control.
