School Daze: Accidents Happen

Karen diligently copied down the vocabulary words her first grade teacher was writing on the chalkboard, biting her lower lip to keep the call of nature at bay. She raised her hand, but the teacher was facing the board.

Finally, the list of words was complete. Holding her arms stiffly, Karen stood and walked to the front of the room to request a hall pass. But it was already too late. A small puddle beneath her chair testified to what had transpired.

While such scenarios can be embarrassing for children, they need not cause health or safety issues for the classroom.
