Good morning. I am wasting time before my appointment this morning. After my lab work, I have to drive to Hutch today for a meeting and to conduct some interviews. woohoo.... just so thrilled (spare me).
The kid got into some trouble at school last Friday. I guess he and another kid were taunting each other back and forth and the other kid ended up punching my kid in the back. Instead of retaliating, my kid said something to the teacher. The other kid was suspended from school and my kid had a day of ISS. He spent his day of ISS yesterday, with no phone call or note sent to the parent. When I finally got a hold of the vice-principal after school, she informed me that she had planned to call me last Friday, but after she got into her office, she just wasn't up to making any phone calls and decided to wait until after school on Monday. Seriously? Of course, I let her know that was absolutely not okay with me. I also told her this was part of the reason the system just doesn't work. If she would have done her job and notified me on Friday, I would not have been as worried and pissed off yesterday when I called. The fact that she told me she didn't want to make anymore phone calls on Friday because she wanted to get out of there put me over the top mad! So, I guess it's okay to wait and call the parents AFTER your child has spent his day in In School Suspension. The Wichita Public School System SUCKS!
I guess I should become a vice-principal so I can pick and choose my tasks for the day, and if I just don't feel like doing something, it can wait until after the weekend.
Okay, enough venting. I'll catch up with you later...
