Lately, my brain hits immediate overload when I have to deal with this carp. So instead of rewriting this, this is the email I sent to the SpEd director. What the heck??? "I just received a phone call from Principal. difficult child apparently slept yesterday morning (this is the first I heard of this) and they woke him. He subsequently had a pretty rough day with at least 2 stints in the safe room (again, I only know these as second hand info, as I have not been told). Today, he is sleeping again. Principal is hesitant to wake him because it always results in a very irritable and agressive difficult child, but claims SpEd Teacher doesn't want her paras standing outside the door watching him sleep as it is a waste of staff's time. He asked me to have someone to come pick him up. I wish I knew why difficult child sleeps like this. He was late getting to sleep last night because he fell asleep in the truck on the way home from the city at 7:30 and dad put him to bed a bit later. But he was asleep by 7pm Sunday and Monday nights. If I knew why, I would glady fix it. But I don't; I don't feel it is something we can control. I am hesitant to send difficult child home with grandma. She is not physically able to carry him anymore, and walking from the school to the car combined with seeing her will probably wake him up for the day - then he would be out of school and wide awake. I am currently missing 2 hours of work a day already to come with him to specials; but I could come pick him up and physically carry him out and let him sleep it off at home. Again, tho, he will wake up, and, again, then he's out of school. So I countered Principal's request with an offer to get someone in there to watch him sleep so there para's aren't "wasting their time". Grandma was free and able, so she is going; had she not been, I had another person that I could possible call, or I would have come myself. However, if he's supposed to have a 1:1 with him all the time, does it really matter if they're sitting outside a room watching him sleep? We discussed in the IEP meeting that when he does fall asleep, the best thing to do is let him be. SpEd teacher said they have seen the consequences of trying to wake him. And honestly, I'm not convinced its SpEd teacher who's upset about this. I realize he shouldn't be sleeping in school; but in a perfect world, he wouldn't have an IEP or a 1:1, either. This is a fact of difficult child's life right now. So grandma is there now, watching him sleep in the little room behind the nurse's office and the office. But what do we do going forward?"
