Withdrawing Mid-Year...how to do in the least awkward way possible
I will be withdrawing my son from his school mid-year and I just now realize it might not be as easy as I thought. I'm hoping I could recieve some advice to make that transition flow easily (without burning bridges basically).
So his school is great, and his teacher is awesome. I just love her...my son is very active and transferred to his current school from another school where he would kick and scream to not go every morning. His old teacher was very rude to me, and I shutter to think how she was with him when noone was watching. He's in kindergarten. Anyway, the experience has made me just appreciate his current teacher even more. She's patient, happy and just great with my son...so bottom line is, I don't want her to take it personal that I'm choosing to homeschool him.
What is the best way for me to withdraw him without his teacher, or his school's staff, to take it personal and think I found something wrong with them? I'm a bit shy, so if I don't plan on what to say/do when withdrawing him, I more likely will just stay silent around them, and it may result in them just thinking that exact thing.
I'm from Texas, so the laws of homeschooling are as lenient as they come; i.e. no necessary curriculum checks, or yearly tests to see progress, etc.
Tomorrow is the first day back from spring break, and I originally planned on the last day before his spring break to be his last day, but then I found out that I need to give his school at least 1 day notice for them to gather withdrawpapers. I actually do want his cumulative papers too; like his past test scores, etc.
Any advice to withdraw him on good terms? I appreciate his school, and want to let them know that, but I also want them to respect mydecision?
Thanks in advance :)
