I am writing again about my son being bullied at School. It has been almost 4 months since my son was attacked by another Student in the lunchroom, and nothing has changed. He is still getting bullied. We are on Spring Break at the moment, but the week before Spring Break, my son was stabbed with a pencil by another Student. We took him to the ER because the led was still in the upper palm of his hand. The Dr could not get it out. Though we do not have to worry about lead poisoning we did have to worry about infection. The big piece of lead has moved closer to the center part of the palm of his hand, so hopefully it will work it's way out. The following day while in Music class, all the students were sitting in chairs in a circle around the Teacher. My son dropped his pencil, so he leaned out of his chair to pick it up. When he went to set back down his chair was no longer their and he fell back and hit his head hard on the edge of a table. He felt light headed and he said it hurt pretty bad. He said it hurt bad enough that he was holding the back of his head and kind of walking around light headed and the Teacher told him to sit down or she was sending him to the Office, at the same time a female Student was yelling at him telling him he was not bleeding and that it was no big deal. I was not informed about what had happened and their was NO concern for my son's safety and the fact that he was hurt. He told me about the incident in the car after I picked him up after School on our Way to get his oldest sister from her High School. I was so upset and started to cry because this has gone on far too long and the School is doing NOTHING to stop all of this bullying my son is enduring every single day. Yes! the boy who attacked him before Christmas break and the boy who stabbed him with his own pencil were both suspended, but nothing is being done about the rest and the fact that the School has a bullying issues. I did take him to the ER the moment we got home to drop off both of my girls. The ER DR checked him out but said that because he did not pass out that he would be fine. Just not to let him go to sleep for a while and to wake him up ever so often through the night and to not let him play any sport. Thank the Good Lord that he did not hit that certain part of his head any harder than he did or he could of had some brain bleeding or more going on. I have not yet informed the Principal about the head incident for we have been on Spring Break. But will do so first thing Monday Morning. Between my son and myself we have talked to the Principal on many occasions about the constant bullying. You would think with my child not being the only one bullied at this School that they would start cracking down on bullying, but that's just not the case. We as Parents can protect our children when they are in our care, But we cannot protect them when they are at School. Though the School cannot watch their Students every little second, our children are still in their care for at least 7 hours out of the day and I just do not buy it that they do not see what is gong on and not doing everything they can to stop it. I am not only talking for my son, but for "EVERY" student. I am going to make a trip to the School board about all of this even knowing that they will take note but that nothing will change. So I am going to do what ever I can to bring attention to the bullying in my son's School and may even go after them legally for my son has been attacked 1 time too many. I have shared without names my sons story through FB and have been shocked and disappointed as too the little few who has given support. I have to say that I am very disappointed in my hometown. I know that Bullying can be stopped or even just limited if EVERYONE was to pull together. The Teachers, Parents, Principals and even the School Board have got to pull together. But It's sad to say that, that is something that is not happening. I am asking everyone for advice and help on how to go about all of this. All will be appreciated. Thank You, Christyl.
