This letter is going in Dolly's book bag tomorrow. I know mistakes happen. But it really bothers me when schools drop the ball like this....
Yesterday my husband was in a very serious accident on his way to work. I did everything I possibly could to ensure the safety of all of my children before leaving to go to the hospital. (Side note: I called the school, told them the situation first thing Wednesday morning and said that Dolly had to go to daycare after school. I was assured that it would not be a problem at all.)
It was only because of the grace of God that I was home when Dolly got off the bus Wednesday. The bus driver does not check to make sure any adults are home. For all he knew Dolly could have been walking in to an empty house.
I am not pointing this note at any one person but I feel that I must address this particular issue. I have many extra rules and regulations that I am required to adhere to because Dolly is a foster child. I have to be able to trust that the school is able to follow these rules too.
TODAY: please make sure that Dolly is put on the shuttle to Day Care after school. I am hoping to be at the hospital getting my husband to bring him home at the same time school is getting out. I cannot afford for this mistake to happen twice.
