The principal totally tried to brush off my letter by acting like she was sorry I disagreed with their policies. She left a message indicating this on my machine, going on and on about how all they cared about was the safety of the children.
Let's remember (and I'd share the email with you, but it's on my other computer, which is currently not working at all, adding to the glory that is my day, oh and yes, HELL YES, little kid needs full time daycare, hell to the yes-oh-yes-oh-yes) that it's NOT the policy I have a problem with, it was the solution to the problem.
Is their policy to let kindergartners wander around the hallways lost and alone on the 2nd day? I bet not.
She totally ignored the attitude issues and the refusal to get an escort and frankly, didn't seem that apologetic at all.
So now she has to deal with Mr. Ashley.
I can tell she doesn't want to deal with Mr. Ashley because although he's left her several messages with his name and phone number and instructions to call him, she has called here and left another message for me saying she was following up and wanted to make sure all had been okay since then.
Oh, sorry lady. You did it to yourself and now you have to talk to Mr. Ashley, and he's very nice but can also be scary, especially when it comes to asshattery around his children and making his wife cry.
Sucks to be you, sorry would've been so much easier.
Update: Now she's emailed me. She's "reviewed and investigated" the situation and is so appreciative I've made her aware of it.
In that case, she should be even more appreciative to do further review and investigation with Mr. Ashley.
