What are all the ‘sick’ CVUSD teachers doing with their days off?


A ‘high number’ of teachers have been calling in absent this week at schools across the Coachella Valley Unified School District in what many believe is a negotiating tactic to get a better contract from the district. Sure, it is possible that the teachers are actually ill – if so, get well ya’ll – but, it is also possible they are just playing hooky. If that is the case, what are they up to?

Some possibilities:

  • Grading papers (because a teacher’s job never ends)
  • Binging on Season 2 of Narcos on Netflix
  • Riding those weird, dumb animal things at the mall
  • Sitting outside – because the weather is finally allowing people to not burst into flames while oudoors
  • Playing Bingo at Fantasy Springs
  • Catching up on Cactus Hugs’ posts

And while others can argue if teachers deserve more money to do a pretty important job or if a sick-out is the best way to handle a contract negotiation, I am more interested in what everyone is up to.

If you are a teacher who called in sick, what are you doing today?  Let us know in the comments below…
