So, yesterday was the last straw in our on-going battle with a bully at our son's school. I posted a while ago about issues he was having with a particular kid. The kid stopped stealing his lunch, but he never quit making fun of him and calling him a "snitch bitch" for coming to us and in turn we took it to the principal. Our son had also already went to his school counselor, but she didn't do anything. We have tried contacting the parents and they won't talk to us.
Well, yesterday our son had welts on his arm from this kid snapping him with a rubberband. We immediately went to the school, met with the 7th grade principal...AGAIN...and they are supposed to be meeting with this kid and the school security officer today. We were going to go to the police and file charges against this kid since the school won't do anything about it (which we informed the principal of and told him he was more than welcome to inform the parents of the bully what our intentions are/were), but after thinking it over last night, we decided to give the school one last chance to handle the situation. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I am thinking that since my husband (and I) went in to meet with the principal yesterday, instead of just me...perhaps the principal will see that we are NOT messing around.
ETA: The boy was given in school suspension..along with another kid. They were high fiving each other and happy because now they get out of school for the day...what dumb a** kids...they tried blaming my son and saying he was snapping them with rubber bands...I am glad the school took action!! Just praying the kid(s) stop now...if not...the cops are our next stop...without question!!
