a bit angry right now. i contacted our district office today about taking time off. i currently have 41 days sick leave with 12 more to be added this year, so our plan was for me to take off until the end of october. i even went in to school today to set up my classroom for a long-term sub BUT…i heard back that for adoption i can only take a leave of absence WITHOUT PAY. i can also take family and medical leave concurrently to continue to get benefits coverage, but that is also WITHOUT PAY. i cannot be WITHOUT PAY. i think i’m coming down with something. i might be out for 41+ days.
