Nick: Hi guys, thank so much for maintaining this site which is a godsend now that I’ve discovered it. We have a 6 year old on the severe side of the spectrum. The school called us to come pick him up early as he was scratching his 1 on 1 aide, as well as another student.
When I arrived the principal and his aide were calming him in a separate room. I asked if I needed to sign anything and they told me no, wasn’t a suspension, I could just take him home for the day. When I insisted on the documentation they then complied and made us wait a good 45 minutes for it.
I had been told to always get documentation for sent home early’s, as it limits it to 10 days, at which time a district intervention is required.
I signed it, but did not even think to look at the date. They tacked on an additional day.
The next day when I dropped him off, the teacher called the office and had the secretary inform me that Logan couldn’t be at school that day.
The teacher is no longer communicating with me or my wife. The relationship with the principal is beyond repair. I know she told me to my face that he just had to go home for the day to calm, but punished him an extra day because of my request for paperwork on being sent home.
Do we have options? Was my request out of line?
