In "It's getting close to the end of the year" where I mentioned:Last evening during the afterschool program that I did not attend there was an incident in the computer lab. Some people started feeling a burning sensation in their throats and airways. One student who has asthma went to the hospital and the school nurse after looking in peoples mouths said that there were white spots in the backs of throats of those complaining of burning. Has anyone heard anything to substantiate a parent's info that some new monitors give off a gas that causes these type problems?
The Computer lab is now closed until the school district can do an investigation. Which is not of high priority right now per what is being said. Of course this is the busy computer usage time when every students NEEEEEEDS to type up their year long project reports. Usually the district's computer servers go down about now too. It is going to get interesting.The Computer Science Teacher sent out this......
The air quality in the computer lab tested great! We took the suggestions and advice from the air quality guy from the district which was to change the monitor out to a different monitor. I believe all is good.
The computer lab printer does work. Before printing, please come see me and I’ll show you what you have to do to make the printer work.
Please do not allow students to put paper in the tray. That is one of the parts of the printer that is on its last legs. It has been repaired twice.
Things do work… we just have to be patient and try to be smarter than the equipment…. which I’m not most of the time. I get lucky sometimes.12 minutes later
…. Never mind…. Printer is dead…. Putting in a heat ticket now….
Sorry…. Have a nice day….Too:
Found out today that there's a student who has an again
'interesting' quirk. He and his identical twin are in the same class period of a certain class. Maybe one of them is made of negative matter to the other's positive matter but they have to be seated away from each other. So one is seated by the classroom's computer color printer. Everyday; until the teacher taped closed the paper loading draw of the printer and put a note on it that specifically read, Do NOT open the drawer student's name
; that student would open the paper loading draw and stick his hands inside. Even when the teacher caught the student before he'd done it one day and told him not to do it and then watched as he pushed the button to open the drawer while looking at the teacher to then stick his hands inside.
These Twins will be in the Library to complete a project next week. They've somehow lost their individual project for this 6 week grading period and have nothing to show for it. So the teacher is giving them a special project that she can then give them their grades on.
Our computer printer is behind the counter where I sit.
