or really close to it. Talked to super today...of course, after they have the meeting of the Shari Communication Committee there at school. I asked her what, exactly, makes her think they will be able to handle Wee for a full day of exclusion from the other kids when they couldn't handle him to keep him out of 15 minutes of recess. She said since the sped teacher will be dealing with him, exclusively, it won't be a problem. Really? You think you can take a kid like Wee, that craves social interaction, and thrives on routine, and deny him all interaction while simultaneously completely uprooting his day, without an issue? And further expect him to "get" something productive from this??? What ever. He wont be serving in school suspension, if I just have to keep him home. They can call it out of school, i don't give a rat's patoot, but I'm not putting him in a doomed situation. We have 4 days til the new person starts. I don't know what her qualifications are. She supposedly has certification and training and isn't just another "$10 an hour employee" but they are hiring her as just another "$10 an hour employee". But, in talking to the super, I told her if the paras had been doing their job, Friday wouldn't have happened in the first place, she said I don't know that, that Wee will have meltdowns. I pointed out that last year, he was not restrained ONE TIME, and again, she said he will have meltdowns. We live in a very small town. I am certain half the town knows who the cops were called to school for. I went out for groceries and just felt the stares. It was all I coudl do not to cry. My son spent the weekend wishing he were dead. Today he told me he wished he were with grandpa, cause grandpa liked him. He just came in here and hugged me and told me he loved me and that he had just wished to God to be a better boy (his version of praying - he wishes to God). And I'm supposed to send him back to that place...that place that will escalate him, then blame him, and call the cops some more. And something good is to come from this??? What? I don't cry often, but I am absolutely defeated tonight.
