I think I have everything done for New Boy B, though I still have lingering concerns over our ability to keep him safe and adequately supervised. I doubt anything will be done about it, though I did mention to Principal S that if he does come, it'll be imperative that, if at all possible, someone covers any openings I have. None of this "Oh, J is out and there's no sub" stuff.

That's three weeks.
She has missed three weeks of work.
That's half of what Aide T missed after having surgery.
I have missed two days this year.
