Over the course of the summer students travel to a variety of places where they see do and touch all sorts of things. Unfortunately, when they return to school they can bring along all the germs they had acquired with them. “Everyone's been a part and then everyone comes back together” lamented Nurse Douglas, “It's like one big petri dish.
Students also prioritize their work over general health.
When students are in school, it's like being in a vacuum-sealed bubble where air is recycled and shared. In order to stay on track in class, sick students still come in, “My parents think as long as i'm not throwing up i’m okay to come to school” said Wyatt Wisnosky('17) This makes it very difficult to avoid potential germs that can be carried with students. Everything within the school is a potential carrier and everything you touch carries germs and bacteria. Touching things is unavoidable however it is possible to take steps that can prevent you from getting sick.
Students must be proactive about connecting with their teachers.
”I had to meet with some teachers to set up a time to arrange how to get the notes, classwork, and homeworks from them.” Stated Hudson Primus('19)
Everyone can get sick and at Bullis but it is easy for the students to avoid it. All you need to do is stay clean, always wash your hands , and lastly always be careful touching others because you never really know what they’ve been touching.
