Yesterday, I checked my son (who is in the 4th grade) out early to go to an amusement park for his brothers birthday. I NEVER do this. This is a once in a blue moon thing. Last year he missed 3 days for being sick, he loves school. He doesn't miss often. Well, he didn't finish his homework because we were out late (which never happens) and today she pointed to the class that while they were being good and staying in school, Jack was at an amusement park. Then, tonight was back to school night and she was explaining the policies regarding homework. She said "I understand if a child doesn't understand the homework but that doesn't mean excusing them early and taking them to Disneyland" in front of all of the parents including my ex-husband who is trying to get custody to avoid paying child support. He knew who she was directing that to. I think this was a bit much. I am considering talking to the principal. If this happened often I could understand but it doesn't. Did she go overboard or am I in the wrong?
