This is sickening.
I went to a school like this when I was in grade six. My inhalers were locked up in the office, and I was having an attack. My memories are a bit foggy (I couldn’t breathe after all) but I recall my twin sister and somebody else wheeling me all the way to the office in a computer chair. Thankfully I was lucky and got my meds in time; I ended up off school for a week and a half recovering.
This shit is scary. Rescue inhalers should be on the person of the child who NEEDS them, and if they are too young then they should be with the caregiver. There is absolutely no excuse to keep RESCUE MEDICATIONS locked up away from the people who need them FAST.
At my high school we had to keep our inhalers in the nurse’s office. I didn’t follow this rule of course. Fuck that.
I remember at gym in high school, my gym teacher asked if anyone had asthma, and this kid raised his hand. When she asked if he had his inhaler with him, he told her it was in his locker. She flipped on him, saying that if he started to have an attack during class, it would be dangerous to have to try to open his locker and get it in time for him to be okay.
Needless to say, he carried his inhaler in his pocket with him everywhere he went from then on.
I never really thought I had to carry my inhaler with me because my asthma is sports and heat induced, but now I think I might.
