I teach Pre-K and while I was out making copies and my assistant was in the room; one of my students spit on another child. My assistant was helping clean up after snacktime and did not see this. I walked in and the girl tells me what happened. I asked the other student why he spit on her and he did not reply. I have never had a problem with this student and I dont know why he would do this. So, I talked to him and gave him a sad face. Later I talked to his mother and she told me she would talk to him. But later the father of the child who had been spat on called me extremely upset. Now my question is how do you handle a situation like this? I told him that I had spoken to the other student's mother and that this would never happen again, but that was just not enough. He was furious! I feel so bad! Please help me out. I plan on sending a note tomorrow apologizing.
