My child attended this school starting in Kinder. She struggled. I kept constant communication with the teachers & principal. I asked them what could be done. They had no options & ignored most communications. School avoidance got so bad and my kid who LOVED learning before kinder steadily refused more & more everyday learning things we had in the home like reading before bed, hiking & plant identification etc etc... she started hating everything about learning. One day she came home excited because she thought she had done really well and would get a flyer award. It was an award given to a few kids each week for being good in school. She said she followed all the rules. The next day she came home so so angry & deeply sad. I asked how the awards went. She didn't have an award in her backpack. My 6yo looked at me & said, I think I am a bad kid and starting crying. So for her mental health &my own I was forced to remove her from the school the very next day. This was after many attempt to seek Special Education under IDEA. She missed the last part of kindergarten & the first part of first grade which I fought with the school over assessments, IEP & accommodation. Finally she went back in February PT for the rest of the 1st grade year. They followed the IEP, and she started to have an easier time in school. She had 1-on-1 support & school avoidance stopped. Then cue second grade. The teacher hadn't reviewed the IEP. The accommodations from it were not in place in the classroom & they would not work with me to make the transition easier. School avoidance started again almost immediately & got worse until one day upon school drop off she got out of the car, froze at the fence to go in & immediately had a panic attack. All the teachers, aids & staff were on the field, watched her struggling with the transition and DID NOTHING. In fact they proceeded like they couldn't see her, rounded up the kids as normal and went to the multi-purpose room to start the day. A mom friend helped by going in and retrieving a teacher to help. That teacher came out and said to me, What do you expect me to do. I can''t put my hands on her. Then she turned around and walked back inside. I had to pull her out of school. I have filed citizen complaints, had mediators for IEP meetings, I have reported them to OSPI, we got an IEE. Now that she is about to go to the school across the water, NOW they are offering supports but it's too little too late. The damage is already done.
