My oldest is headed to high school. the high schools here start on Monday.
We applied back in June for him to attend one of the better schools in the district that offers a robotics and engineering program and I have heard nothing.
I call the district and they said call the school, one person at the school says, "Nope, no way, not possible!", the next person says, "Oh, yeah, shouldn't be a problem." ...
Now I'm waiting for a call back from the assistant principal to see what the heck we are going to do.
OK - it nearly took an act of God...but I GOT HIM IN!!!
I finally got ahold of the Principal Mr R. on Thursday morning. He said he would accept him but needed district approval. He would call me back "within the hour" and let me know the status... I waited all day Thursday and started calling at 8am today... no answer, left messages, nothing.
Showed up at the school at 2:30... "Mr. R is unavailable" ..OMG...really? He said he would call back yestterday.. Uggg.. Secretary says, well bring him and enroll him Monday, but if he's not accepted they will kick him out Tuesday.. REALLY? Is that an answer?? @@
I drove my arse over to the district! LOL and went and sat in the District coordinator's office. She finally said, Oh yeah, I had a message from Mr. R but hadn't had a chance to call him back @@.
After hearing my talk with Mr. R she wrote up my approval letter right there :) Now I have to go enroll him on Monday. Classes start at 7:30 am but they will not open new registration until 7:45am. So the chaos of everyone with a schedule is over and done. LOL
Mr. R was really helpful and really nice... I appreciated how he worked. He couldn't really call me back since he had no answer, I get that . but the system IS flawed.I do appreciate the Principal's manner and attitude.
I took DS school shopping tonight - got him 2 new outfits and all his supplies... he is SO EXCITED!
