Like most millennials, I too, have a self-diagnosed mental disorder that most physicians would cry foul due to no signs of a chemical imbalance in my brain. Regardless, I identify as a person who has mental issues and enjoy to draw attention to my narcissistic self to gain pity from others. I am interested in having a therapy animal. Preferably a small hamster for the rhythmic squeaks and tiny nibbles that penetrate my fingers–all which keep me on task. Would Shenendehowa be able to accommodate for this?

A.  Personal therapy animals are not allowed in school unless they are deemed medically necessary, are trained, certified, and do not pose any disruption to the learning environment. A hamster does not meet the criteria.
