We just had our aunt make us up a propane bill since my FIL owns the propane company. Voila. Problem solved. He starts at his new school tomorrow!


Our elementary schools are zoned and require proof of residency. We are almost finished building our new house, and it's in a different zone than where we are now. Instead of letting my first grader (who does not deal with big changes or new people well) start in the zone we will be moving to in 3 weeks, they're making him start hereand then switch. Even though by the time we get our first utiluty bill, we will be living there and he will be going here?! So he has to get used to 2 new teachers, and leave the friends he'll make at the first school. Wtf?

Because you are not there yet. It's not the schools fault you had poor planning.

That is a very old rule that people should be used to by now.

My thoughts on this are that YOU should have planned better when deciding to build a new house in a different zone.

It's not the schools fault your child cannot adjust to new surroundings. It's only 3 weeks.

Blah, blah, blah to those saying it's because of your poor planning. Really? Because we all know how well contractors are about being on time...or maybe because her's isn't the only house in the country being built, and it get's done when it can, according to the contractors schedule.

I do agree that it is stupid. Do you have electricity at the other place? Can you turn it on and then bring in a bill? Maybe there is something else that will work? Call the superintendents office. They might be able to help out.

I'd let him finish out the year where he's at now. They won't know. Then switch him next year.
