My son has watery eyes in the mornings. I think its allergies. Anyway, one day his head start principal called me and tells me he needs to be picked up early because he has pink eye. I send my sister because I am working and she gets there and they have him sitting down all isolated while the other kids are playing during recess time. Get this, his eyes were fine. Then the week after that they didnt let him in because of his cough. The kid coughed ONCE and rubbed his nose lol they said he had to go home. Then last week they had me pick him up early again because he has "pink eye" this time they asked for him to be seen by a doctor before he can come back to school. So fine I call and make an appointment. The only thing available was for today. So the entire week he didnt go because we didnt have a doctor's note. The school's family worker came to my house yesterday and gave my mom a letter (I was working) the letter says that I have until 4/21/14 to report to the school with a doctor's note or else they can start a case against me for neglect. From 4/14 to 4/18 the school will be closed due to spring break so thats why my deadline is 4/21. They say its neglect for me to keep my son away from school and not take him to the doctor when they first requested it. Well hello I had to set an appointment I mean I wont take him to the ER just for watery eyes. He is perfectly fine. His appointment is in an hour. I cant help it if his pediatrician has other appointments. Im a bit scared that they threatened with filing a case for neglect. I didnt know they can do that just because I didnt take him to the doctor right away. His eyes are fine its just in the mornings that they are watery. I tried to explain that to them but they didnt listen.
