“I’m an ER nurse. A call came into the hospital reception on a private line for me.
Phone: “This is Mr. Smith* from St. Mary’s High School*. There’s been an incident involving your daughter. We need you to come in.”
Me: “Is she sick or hurt? Can’t it wait until my shift is over in two hours?”
Phone: “Your daughter has hit another student. We’ve been trying to call you for 45 minutes. It’s quite serious.”
