My son is 15th years old he is in 10th grade in Metropolitan
My son is 15th years old he is in 10th grade in Metropolitan High School in Queens, NY. There was a situation at the school, which I was not informed of immediately until my son contacted me and explained to me exactly how everything happen. He explained that he was in his 2nd period class (spanish) they had sub teacher, and the kids were being clowns and decided to take a smarties candy and sniff it. At his 8th period class he was called down to the principle's office by the dean Mr. Williams. My son waited for him at the office, when he approached my son to go into principles office and asked him what had happen and he also mentioned to my son that there was a video of my son doing this. He told my son that he had to write a statement. Through all this I was not inform of what was happening at that moment. Later on my son was told by a student who also was involved that the school had called their parent, but i never received a call. I came to receive a call at the end of the day by my son not by the dean that approached my son or the principle who came into the room after my son was manipulated into writing this statement. As my son leaves the school he found out through other students that there was no video involve of my son. So i requested a meeting via email yesterday afternoon with the principle, the dean and the students involved and their parents. This morning I received an email from the principle saying the following: Good morning Ms. Moreno, In order for us to protect our students right to privacy we have to meet with each parent individually. Let me know if you will be attending the meeting today. I responded to the email that we will only have the meeting with the students and their parents, since my son didn't bring the candy it was given to him, it is fair that each parent hears each verse of the students involved which the school is denying me this right. I feel like there is more to it and they don't want to share with me. What can I do Regards, ***** ***** … read more
