Is this okay?
Standardized tests can be stressful. To ease students' tension, two fourth-grade teachers at Westchase Elementary School in Florida provided students with prescription pill bottles full of mints -- and encouraged them to pop one when they felt stressed.
Sandy Young, whose grandson is in the class, immediately questioned the teacher.
"She said it was nothing but some mints; it was just something special for the kids, for the FCAT to mellow them out," Young told TBO.com.
Young said the bottle reads in part: "Watson's Whiz Kid Pharmacy. Take 1 tablet by mouth EVERY 5 MINUTES to cure FCAT jitters. Repeated use may cause craft to spontaneously ooze from pores. No refills. Ms. (Deborah) Falcon's authorization required."
After Young complained, the students were asked to dump the mints in a separate container and the pill bottles were thrown away.
What would you do if your kid was given mints in a prescription bottle? Is this a big deal ... or no biggie?
