School Update

Well, Tyler's first day of school (and second day) went well. There is still some confusion about how the school lunch system works (as I feared), but Tyler has been bringing a lunch box full of assorted items, just in case. And he has needed them. I wrote his teacher 2 emails and a letter, but there has been no response.

I know I need to be calm. My boy isn't starving. But dammit, we paid $50 in advance so he could have his pick of the cafeteria offerings each day. Hasn't there ever been a vegetarian child at that school before? Why can't he just get double fruit or starch and forget the entree? It's not rocket science, people! I guess the only place my rant will be heard is here; by all 5 of you...since it appears I only have 5 regular readers these days.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. I need a weekend to recuperate from all this "school" stuff. And to get started on shopping for Tyler's school supplies, since I finally have a list to go by. Do we really have 18 more years of this, not including college? *sigh* It's no wonder so many of my friends opt to home school their kids.

I hope you get it srraightened out soon. It doesn't seem like it should be that big of a deal but I have thought that about other things.

You have more then 5 readers of your journal! I read it everyday. My boys are 27 and 22 years old now, I enjoy seeing your boys grow up, and the things you do for them! If they don't get back to you soon, go over to the school, they will talk to you then..

When I worked at the school we didn't send calls and visitors about lunch and lunch money to teachers, we sent them straight to the cafeteria. Those lunch ladies know what's going on and can help you work it out too.

When I was in kindergarton, we didn't get lunch. We got a milk box and snack (although I can't remember what kind of snacks we had).

(Maybe that's why I was such a skinny kid. I never ate!)

Then, our teacher made us lay down on our mats. Ah, woe.

I still read Becky, just don't reply often. Sorry Tyler's having a hard time with the lunch thing.
My kid's don't buy anymore. Everytime they would pick a certain meal from the menu, the school didn't have it. So I pack lunches every single day for 4 kid's.
I would be a lil mad that the teacher has yet to reply to your emails too.
Anyway, I hope it's resolved soon.
Is he getting enough to eat? Poor little guy...somehow I keep seeing the Lunch Lady from SNL....

love, Kas

I'm thinking the school lunches will get worked out soon. Maybe you could have lunch with Tyler one day next week, just to see how it goes.

I never miss a read! Ever.

Go directly to the lunch ladies. Now, I'm going off to have a "gee I'm getting old" cry too...

Make that nine readers...lol!! I have been adding my AOL pals to my bloglines as I find them. Thanks for visiting and the comment. I guess we all have those "Ahhhhhh" moments where we understand who we are. Unfortunetly the English classes were terrible where I first started college. they were better and more advanced in high School. In typical fashion, I lost interst and in a matter of three semesters flunked out (hahah!!) and when I returned to school it was the '80's and I found myself in business school. If only....
