My four year olds fish died yesterday. He was upset last night and cried for about an hour. I warned his teacher today and she said oh well he could always get another fish. I understand he cann get another fish but we are moving in three weeks and his fish was the one living thing he could take.

For me, no, but for your son, yes. Maybe your son's teacher didn't understand how attached he was to the fish. Our two kids are like polar opposites, our younger daughter would flush the fish and be done, but our older daughter would find a nice little box and have a fish funeral in the backyard. We had a couple of turtles who died a few weeks a part - both were buried in small coffee cans in our back yard. We've also got a baby bird, a squirrel, two beta fish and a toad in our pet cemetery. Each kid handles death in their own way.
