One may thing that by now I would have fully completed all my bitching, complaining and moaning about our incompetent school in regards to Kindergarten.
Well, one would be TOTALLY FUCKING WRONG.
School began last Monday, word came on Tuesday the school would be hiring a new teacher due to the high enrollment. On Wednesday a note was sent home that the half-day kids would be sent to the new Kindergarten class on Thursday.
Thursday morning I walked Griffin down the new classroom IN THE BASEMENT. The walls were white, there was carpet on the floor and a substitute teacher.
Yeah, that's it.
On Friday it looked exactly the same, but with two small tables and chairs. The kids did not have their pencil boxes. They did not have their towels their parents provided. No shirts for paint, hell no paints to speak of either. There was not art center, no science center, no books to read.
There was no tissue paper that the parents had provided. No diaper wipes the parents provided. No bottles of glue the parents had provided.
No cubbies for their stuff, no stuff to put in their cubbies. One hook for backpacks (compared to having three hooks in the official rooms -- one for backpacks, one for coats and one for hats).
On Friday the principal left an automated message on the answering machine. He realizes we parents are concerned.
Today he sent home a two page note that was basically worthless.
Dumbass, I know why you needed to hire another teacher. The enrollment was high. I. Got. It. I'm not fucking stupid.
But that doesn't explain why, instead of hiring two sub para-pros, you put a substitute teacher IN THE BASEMENT with the kids and NO SUPPLIES.
In the note today it even mentions that the curriculum is on order. What the fuck? Does that mean BESIDES BEING IN THE BASEMENT WITH NOTHING TO DO, my son isn't even working of a curriculum? Are you fucking kidding me with this shit?
And yeah, okay, everything is on order. Don't fucking tell me you have no idea when this shit is scheduled to be delivered.
And why is it that it's the half day kids that are being thrown in the basement with any supplies? That's a little something I'd like to call fiscal discrimination (full day kids' parents pay $250 a month each to be full day). Why not the kids that had the late enrollment? Why not a class of full day kids?
I feel like I'm Fucking Losing My Mind with this god damn school.
