Question Marks Do Schools In Your Area Have No Tampon Donation Policies?

I'm making feminine hygiene packs to donate to schools.

I just happened to see the school nurse today and told her about the packs and what was in them. She's excited to get them. But, she told me that they aren't allowed to give out tampons to the girls.

It's not a big deal, as I can just take the tampons out.

I was just curious if anyone has heard of schools with this policy, or if there are schools in your area with the same rules.

TIA

Must be because of the toxic shock syndrome.

I think you're right!

I remember growing up that not all of my friends' mothers let them wear tampons. Maybe that might be a problem too.

I think it may be that either parents don't allow it, toxic shock or maybe it is against some religions to use. I think pads are more universal and every girl knows how to use them.

Some girls have no support at home or don't talk to their mothers about this stuff or don't have a mother. So maybe the nurse is too worried about the school being liable if the child/student gets an infection or dies from using them wrong. With pads they are pretty self explanatory to any girl of any age.

Hey if you see the nurse again. Ask because I would love to know the real reason why. Regardless you are doing an awesome thing :-)

unfortunately there is another possible reason----seems like someone came up with the brilliant idea to soak tampons in liquor-and then insert them-instant buzz--a lot of schools are now banning tampons just for this reason--who thinks of this stuff?????

R u kidding me? I can't believe someone would do that! Crazy! It's not banned at our school. I teach 6th grade at an elementary school and we try to keep some pads/tampons in our rooms because unfortunately most of my girls in my room every year have already started.

Wow! I went to google this and it's really disturbing. Apparently the alcohol from the soaked tampon goes straight into the blood stream with nothing to stop it. And you can get drunk faster than drinking it and having it go through the stomach.

I honestly would have never thought..

Can I ask a question? How do you get the tampons and pads for your classroom? Do you get them from the school nurse? Does she distribute them to the teachers?

I was just wondering if it was best to donate some to the nurse and social worker, and others to teachers.

Any thoughts?
