So here we are 10 days into the school year and we just found out that BM moved (again). SS has been telling us that she was planning on moving but we thought with her trying to appear more stable for court she wouldn't do that this year especially now that he's in school. The year before he started Kinder they lived in 4 different houses. Since he's been born she has lived in 12 different places and he is 6. At least this house lasted a whole year.
To the point. She emailed DH to tell him that she has moved 20 minutes away from SS's school, but that she is going to keep him in the same school and ask for a transfer since its the same district. Okay that's cool. Except 1. she doesn't have a car so how is he going to get there? and 2. DH looked up the address and it didn't look like it was in the same district so he asked me to check it. Turns out she moved out of district and the school district he's currently attending doesn't accept out of district transfers.
DH is irritated beyond belief because he asked her last year to put him in the school that our house is zoned for that way if she moved he doesn't have to change schools every time and she told him no because she didn't have a way to get him to school and she needed him to be able to walk. So now if the school finds out then ss will be kicked out of that school and if she tries to transfer she will have to use our address. We are totally fine using our address except that his school is at capacity and we are worried if she chooses to go that route (which she probably won't based on past experience) that he will still not be able to stay in the same place and he will be asked to attend the school we are zoned for at which point she will probably just pull him from the district and put him in the school by her. Which means our now 5 minute drive to school just turned into a 45 minute drive to school with traffic.
With a court date looming in the future that will most likely order a solution to the probelm does DH tell the school she moved or keep his mouth shut? And how do you keep the school from finding out when ss is 6 and will most likely tell them himself?
I think he keeps his mouth shut and lets ss stay where he is as long as he can since there is no clear alternative to keep him where he is at and no one wants to move him. However, I know DH likes to do the right thing and I think we are both feeling like lying isn't the best route either, albeit by ommission.
