I am sorry to hear of this situation
Is there anything we can do to ensure my grandson gets his lunch AND his education?
So this decision to split the lunch break with the reading was made without any notification to the parents?
They were not told of this until today by a TSS worker. Assparently this has been going on for a couple of weeks.
Well, i suggest that a conference needs to be done where the parents are told that the boy seems to need tutoring time and that maybe the best time is after he has eaten is lunch
Students are supposed to have ample time to eat and exercise during the school day and that delineated time should be in the student handbook
So I suggest you may want to check there to see what it says - like 10 minutes to eat, and 15 to exercise
This really will come down to what the parents and school administrators can agree on
We will try that but this school administration doesn't like to hear
If the parents do not want him to miss his 15 minutes of lunch exercise,, then perhaps other arrangements can be made for the tutoring of the reading
If the principal and counselors do not want to listen, then go to the Department of Education in the county
And talk to someone there
Take it to the top. Find out why the child needs the extra reading time and not that you are opposed to it, but you should have been told about it
