Update to Music Class

I just now got a phone call from Sam's elementary principal. She received the email I sent out Sunday to Sam's IEP team, detailing the information I was given by the music teacher regarding Sam's expulsion.

I am happy to report that Sam is not expelled from music class and never was. The principal didn't know why the music teacher would say something like that. She said, "We would never expel a student from a class like that, especially under the condition that he is medicated before he is allowed to return. That's not even legal. We can't tell a parent whether or not to medicate her children."

The principal apologized on behalf of the music teacher. She said the music teacher hasn't been teaching long, and perhaps she just got frazzled and misunderstood what the principal said about getting things straightened out.

Today Sam will have a member of the IEP team accompany him to music class. This is a step in the right direction. We'll see how things go today :)
