Today I was waiting for Justin on parent pick up. I noticed the boy he usually walks with was walking alone and instantly I got worried that I didn't see Justin. So, about 10 mins later I waved down a staff member and said that I didn't see my son and that the other children from his class came out over 10 mins ago and it was the older grades now walking out to parent pick up (they dismiss by gradres)
The guy I was talking to said he would look for him. I was so upset and all I could think of was he wondered off or his bio father abducted him or he fell and was hurt bad. I am such a worrier and I was so upset at this point. I was going to get my 2 other kids out of the car and go look myself. ( I always think the craziest worse things and panic)A few more mins. passed and FINALLY Justin came out with his teacher.
The aide in his class gave Justin 4 school books to take home. The backpack was about 30 pounds..maybe heavier!!!! So, when Justin was walking the teacher told me he toppled over and fell over head first on the sidewalk.
I KNOW the aide had good intentions buuut Justin has been in class with her for 2 years and she knows his special needs. For the life of me I don't understand WHY she would put those many books in his backpack! Its a known fact he has balance issues, low muscle tone, walks with an abnormal gait. *sigh* ( It was too heavy for even a child with out sn to carry)
I guess this is just another accident to add to the list of people expecting too much from Justin and thinking he can do more then he is capable of.
Anyways, I was just so scared those few mins I didn't know where he was and KNEW something happened. My heart fell to my stomach. He is ok, there is no visible bump but he says his head is hurting.

I'd call and tell whoever is in charge that if they want him to bring all those books home, they need to carry them to your car for him. I'm sorry hon, I'd be upset too!

Wow. Did you talk to anyone about it? I'd be afraid that it would just keep happening until/unless you say something! I'm so sorry!!!

That is EXACTLY what I hate about the school stuff... they "should" realize things, but they don't, they think "oh, he looks fine"... & then do stuff like that & hurt the children. Ticks me off. Sorry. I feel you, I'd be angry.


Sorry you had to go through that.

Oh I'm so sorry, I hope his head feels better and you can speak to the school about limiting the weight in his backpack.

When the teacher came out to parent pick up you could tell she was p-off. She spoke to the aide. I didn't say anything to her directly.
ahhh only 4 more days of school left
