  • Is her name on them?

  • Well, where does she put them. The school cannot be responsible for every child's belongings, it's NOT possible

  • THEY lost it or SHE lost it? How can THEY lose it if SHE was sent to school with it?

  • I feel ya on this one.
    For us it was his winter hats. I must have bought at least 20 that one year! This was when my autistic son was in Early Childhood. His coat and backpack were with him in the room on a hook,so where were the hats going??

  • It HAS to have her name on it. And SHE needs to be taught to be responsible for her OWN stuff!!

  • i had this same problem with my kids with the bring something special to share with the class day and my kids names were on them and the school acted like they had no idea what happened to it or even acknowledge that they had brought it in. Come to find out another kid was stealing it out of my dd's cubby so i wrote a letter to the parent and demanded it back!!

  • go into the school and find them. They're somewhere. Playground, other kids cubby, gym, office, etc etc etc

    They CANNOT be responsible. Is it a $5 walmart sweater or a $120 Burberry? They have no clue, way of verifying, etc.

    Lunch box should 100% be your childs problem/fault. Sweater: leave one at school. A hoodie or a sweater permanent at school.

  • It's a Uniform Sweater with her name on it and it was 100 usd for the darn sweater!. They are the babies in that school and they are learning responsabilities...she has a place for her stuff, what can she do if a mean kid moves it and hides her should be the teachers responsability to make sure these kids go home with what they came with!

  • Maybe another kid took it by mistake. My kids have lost so many things at school.
