As communicated by Mr. Principal: "I think that the best thing to do right now is to not send the children to the local elementary school. I will have to work out an alternative program."
This brought me lighter steps all day and took away the dread of the start of the new school year. I am thankful Mr. Principal took the time to review what concerned parents had to say about transporting their children 2 days a week to another local school for physical education.
There is nothing better than feeling as though you have achieved a small victory for someone else. Because in this case it wasn't about who was right and who was wrong. It was about the children and what is best for them.
"RED ROVER, RED ROVER,
ON SECOND THOUGHT,
WE'LL KEEP OUR CHILDREN RIGHT HERE
AND NOT SEND THEM OVER!"
