Thanx Joan.  It is very important to train the staff at the school your child 
attends.  Ashley has gone to the same school for the whole 5 years she has 
been diabetic.  I have to tell you that this actually just recently helped a 
little girl that goes there.  Luckily for this girl her teacher is Ms. Hassen 
a teacher we have trained 2 years in a row:-)  She saw the warning signs in 
this girl & took her to the clinic in the school.  They called me & asked if 
they could use Ashley's glucometer to check her blood.  Turned out the meter 
read her as high.  She has been in the hospital for a week & just came back 
to school Thursday.  Ashley is going to be her new buddy & I have offered my 
help to the Mother.  I was just so thrilled that this teacher caught the 
warning signs & was able to help her:-)
