Vanessa Visits the School (Photostory)
It's 9:00am Monday morning and China is in her office. She hears a knock on the door.
"Come in." (China)
"Good morning, Vanessa. How are you and what brings you by this morning?" (China)
"I'm here to report that my son is being bullied by a student here." (Vanessa)
"Come on in and sit down." (China)
"Now tell me, what happened?" (China)
Vanessa tells China exactly what Tyler told her.
"That is crazy. I need to get the principal in here right away." (China)
"Mr. Reed, we have a situation that you need to hear about. Are you available to talk to one of our parents?" (China through the intercom)
"I'll just come to your office. I will be right there." (Principal)
"I'm so sorry this happened. How's Tyler doing now?" (China)
"He's better now that it's out in the open, but he's still scared, so I kept him out of school today." (Vanessa)
"This bullying thing is so out of hand and I didn't want to take any chances of retaliation." (Vanessa)
"I would have done the same thing. Our children have enough to deal with, without that added stress." (China)
Just then, Mr. Kaseem Reed, the principal, enters the office.
"Mr. Reed this is Vanessa Morrison and her son is a victim of bullying." (China)
"Hello Mrs. Morrison. Pleasure to meet you. I'm so sorry to hear about your son." (Mr. Reed)
"Can you tell me what happened?" (Mr. Reed)
Again, Vanessa explains what Tyler relayed to her.
"I'm sorry to hear that. We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to bullying, so we will get to the bottom of this and take the appropriate action." (Mr. Reed)
"China, can you set up a meeting with me and the student in question?" (Mr. Reed)
"After that meeting, we will get the parents involved." (Mr. Reed)
"Okay, I will get right on that." (China)
"We will follow up and get to the bottom of this. Again, I am so sorry and I promise to handle this swiftly." (Mr. Reed)
Vanessa left there feeling a little better, but she's anxiously awaiting a call from the principal to get some closure to this whole ordeal.
I made some pants a couple days ago, and China was the lucky one to get to wear them.
They go quite well with the sweater I purchased from Gabi-5mates.
