The school where I work is supposed to be scent-free but it is not enforced. When students have broken the rule and sprayed in the hallway I have told the admin but don't always get action :verymad so if it is bad I just leave the building and then call them from outside and tell them I'll see them in a couple of hours. :banana Don't panic: I rarely supervise students and if I do they are more responsible than I am :rofl



I totally understand this. My board is also supposed to be scent free but I caught the teacher I work with spraying Axe in the classroom during recess the other day. :verymad I never had this problem with the last teacher I worked with since she was also allergic to scents and also chalk dust. I really miss her :(
I did let him know that I am allergic to scents and asked him not to spray it in class. I also let him know that scents can also cause problems with students with learning disabilities and those on the Autism Spectrum (and we have 2 maybe 3 in the class) so its best not to spray it in the school.

I"m thinking I may have to have a discussion with my principal about the nut problem. I"m sure once all the staff understand things will improve. It's very hard when switching schools and only being there 2 days a week.

Yes, a discusion with the principal is in order. If staff don't follow procedures, and they aren't enforced, then you really don't have procedures. :banghead

Good luck!
