I think every mom here would be ticked off at the situation, the school and their child. She did walk home without anyone being aware. Being an end of the day class that evidently not everyone is involved, I am not sure how they could make it better, but yes, I completely understand you unhappiness. She is seven years old and she was having a bad day. In a perfect world the teacher would have called with that information but the teacher is busy and she knows you have two small ones at home. And your husband is still traveling, isn't he?
Thank you. Dh just got home about 2 hours ago. yeah for me! :-)
I agree. And maybe things are different there, but here, if your child is on school grounds, in a school sponsored event, unless you have signed off on them being responsible, they ARE responsible. It IS a liability on them to make sure the kids are where they are supposed to be...or call home to let parents know they aren't. THAT is my problem with all of this. At this age, someone at the school should have checked to make sure all kids who were supposed to be there WERE there. YES, the child would SO be in trouble for just leaving....but the school supervision needs to be dealt with, too.
Yes, at school she is their responsibility. It even goes as far as she is their responsibility the moment they head out the door (or back to) school. Very strict on things here. The deputy head came out yesterday while I was talking to her teacher, and she was very very concerned. I think she was pleased at the result that I am just talking, LOL, that no further action is being taken. Not that I would do anything like that, but I am sure that a whole slew of people would!
