I tried calling this morning to leave a message on their ANSWERING machine.....to let them know you are officially being withdrawn to transfer to Ohio Virtual Academy......but the process is in limbo as surprise surprise........NO ONE will return my calls from the offices that need to in order to get this process started......and guess what? The school has put a BLOCK on my home number.
THAT should sum up to anyone the kind of staff I have had to deal with. I was not and did not harass them and would not. I wanted to make arrangements to come in and pick up Noah's school supplies.....his class picture and a 37.00 scholastic book order I have already paid for. I wanted to only leave a message this morning to remind them he was officially being withdrawn to transfer to OVA so they would NOT count him TRUANT. I cannot even do that now. I did try calling just now on my cell and it rings......but never went into answering mode.
I contacted my former social worker yesterday and she said she could make arrangements to go pick up your things from the school if I did not want to. I had explained to her yesterday I needed to go and retrieve these items but I did not want to ever go back there if I could avoid it. She said that was an area she could help and she could go in my place. I thanked her and said YES. I definitely will have to have her do this service now as I have no way to make any arrangements myself because the school.....the immature staff........BLOCKED MY PHONE NUMBER!!!!!
The social worker was afraid the school would try to make it hard for me to withdraw you because of your IEP but I explained I have dealt with this before and an IEP does not and should not make withdrawing any different than it would for any other child. I have done it before and had to do nothing different. I may have to CLOSE it.....sign off on it......and I am willing to do that with THIS school as I don't want any of them to provide any services for you any more so they could be released from their obligations there.
They better not try the TRUANCY card either just to give us a hard time. I will go get a freakin' note from your doctor if need be excusing you due to emotional duress which you have been under for the past 2 days because of the stuff that happened in school on Monday.
I have enough helps in place this should all be avoided. I called your after school social group leader and explained to her I was withdrawing you from the school to transfer you to OVA. I have contacted and am working with my former social worker who can still do a lot for us so we don't have to which in this case since she is a neutral party I figured would be the way to handle it.
I am still STUNNED the school blocked our home number and yet again I am not surprised. WHAT.....are they afraid of me? Are they going to try saying I harassed them when all I did was make ONE phone call to their secretary yesterday??
Even though I could call from another number.....I am too leery about it now. I also do not want to go to the school by myself......if I had to. Anyone want to go with me??? I don't know if I could call a police officer to go with me to the school or not to pick up your supplies. This is all so absurd.
I love you Noah. Tonight I am taking you trick or treating with your cousin Audrey and her mom. Hopefully we can all relax a little bit there.
