My Ydd is 4 almost 5. Full day kindergarten. Before I go into what happened with her ill give some back story of last year and this district.
Dh n I ended up getting an attorney. Ds had a bully. Not just name calling, he was getting maliciously attacked and criminally assaulted. The school principal did nothing but take away the childs recess. Same with the superintendent, she did nothing. The first we confronted the school was in October. It took us getting an attorney and my son being stabbed 8 times with a pencil for the child to be removed from the class and off the bus. (Child kept pushing ds off the bus steps and punching ds on the bus) When we finally got it thru the school that this was a serious matter was April. Oct thru April to get something done.
Last week was week 1 for all 3 of my kids. Odd is in 3rd, ds is in 1st and Ydd is in kindergarten. The 2nd day of school Ydd gets off the bus crying. At lunch she needed the bathroom so her teacher took her, when she came back other kids ate her lunch. When she told an adult she was told "oh well" and not given more food. All she had was an apple. I called the principal to let her know what happenwd and asked it not happen again. She assured me it wouldn't and stated she doesn't want to have any issues this year and will see to it NONE of my kids are harmed. (New principal is the superintendent) Ydd comes home today and says 2 girls in her class pushed her down in the hall again, yes again. Everyday since school started these 2 girls have been pushing her down. Started looking her over because something didn't look right. I was right. By her eyelashes its all black and blue. She ended up with a black eye.
Before anyone says "you need to put them in another district." "find a better school" I tried. All schools in the surrounding districts are full and have lists already for next year. My kids are stuck in this district. If it tells you how crappy its become they closed the HS and fired halfthe teaching staff.
