So I go to the principals office this morning to meet with her, to find that she had already called the boy's mother after speaking to me earlier this week!
So this is pretty much how it played out:
The principal explained to the boys mother the problems that was going on, and she was baffled, because ODD's teacher made it out to be like it was really no big deal, "Harmless Teasing" was the words that she used to describe it. His mother had no idea that he was punching ODD in the face and things to that nature. NONE. She was shocked.
The child is going to be suspended from school for 3 consecutive days starting on Tuesday, because of no school on Monday (president's day). Any infraction, if any, after that is to be handled by the principal directly, NOT the children's teacher. The mother of the boy sincerely apologized to me, and she said that she would be taking care of that little situation at home too.
As far as ODD's teacher goes, she is in trouble, but I doubt it will be more than anything other than a slap on the wrist for not taking things seriously. I requested that the principal approve her to be placed into a different classroom, and she did. ODD will start going to the same teacher that my younger brother had when he was in kindergarten. I requested her because I know she is very kind.
So all has worked out! Thank you ladies so much for your help and encouragement!!!!!
ODD is in kindergarten this year. She has had a problem with this kid named David from week 1. He strikes her, pinches her, kicks her and scratches her at school. She has come home with bruises on her legs, and claw marks on her face and arms.
Her teacher is aware of all of these problems with this child. Her Dad, SF, SM and I have all expressed our concerns about this boy at all of the PTC's so far, and I call her teacher about the shit all the time. She keeps telling us that she's trying to keep the contact to a minimum, and that the boy has a behavior problem.
Today I had to literally force a crying DD out the door to go to school. I called her teacher again today and told her that David had punched her in the face yesterday. Her teacher told me that there was another incident TODAY on the way to the buses to go home. I blatantly asked her what she was going to do about this, and she tells me she is going to move their seats, because they sit by each other. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???? This kid abuses my daughter, and you permit them to sit beside each other?? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?????
What do I do now? She is of NO help what so ever, a total fucking ditz I swear. Do I go to the principal?
What can I do to console DD? That child has been through so much in her little life up to this point, this is the last thing she needs. Nothing I say to her helps.
