I'm sure I haven't gotten the entire story out of kiddo yet, but it involved something about double-digit division, her inability to do it, and teachers pushing her to do it while classmates "doubting her". Many self-harming threats were made, shoes were thrown, papers were tossed and torn (her typical M.O.). Principal would have kept her in the office except that she was on the phone with the superintendent at the time and kiddo's yelling was so loud (even through a closed door) that he could hear it and told principal that I had to come get her right then, no waiting 45 minutes until I got off work would not be good enough. She even told the super that sending kiddo home would be giving her exactly what kiddo wants. Because, you know, I haven't missed enough hours due to getting sent home when it's slow, weather cancellations that I can't get a sitter for, having to cut my hours short tomorrow to take kiddo to another town to see the neuropsychologist, etc. And I leave the boss and a co-worker in a lurch right in the middle of lunch rush. They nixed the idea of sending her to the alt school for a few days, luckily. That would also have cut into my hours next week and caused my boss to have to schedule around it. I think this pretty much seals her getting an IEP at the meeting next week, but surely there is a better way. Or at least a calmer one.
