A Week Later
It's been a week since Ashley was abused by a school staff person. A week during which the school district is refusing to tell me anything.
I know that the pediatrician filed a report with Child Protective Services, but every time I ask the school if they did, they won't answer me. I have asked verbally and in writing for an explanation on how the injury happened, and the only answer I get is that it is a personnel matter and they can't share anything with me.
Silly me, I thought it was a child abuse issue.
My latest email to Central Office (the place I was passed off to by the school principal) brought a response that said, "I am conducting a thorough investigation but because it is a personnel matter, I can't share anything with you."
I think it's time for a call to an attorney. What do you think?
(Ashley's arm is still bruised and a little swollen. Since it's been a week and it's still that way, you can imagine how bad the injury was....)
