A Letter

An Important Letter From The High School….

Today we received an important letter from our oldest sons high school. Hayden has been sent home a letter to let us know that he has breached the school uniform….not once but FOUR times.

My first question is why was I not told the first time, even the second time, how about the third time? Why wait to the fourth time?

I don’t get how the school works. All the kids of the highschool are given computers this year – one on one 24/7. That is great, really great. We don’t have a T.V. nor play station nor a Wii, and the other Woody boys do not have access to a computer unless we log them onto our computer. We are always making sure what the boys watch, because we don’t like them to watch horror movies, or violent ones.

Only to find out that both of the two older boys have movies downloaded on to their laptops. The computers that the school gave out to each student with a policy that each student has to sign to say “that their computers would only have content on there that was approved by the school”. SO how do both Woody Older Boys have pirated movies on their computer to watch whenever they want. WHY do they have movies that one of the students is selling through out the school downloaded onto their computer, BUT no one from the I.T. department has done anything about it?

How can the school be worried about the “Correct Uniform Policy” but not the “Correct Laptop Policy”. Is it just me or this a screwed up world? I would think our kids minds are more important than how our kids are dressed. I still do not know what Hayden has done on four occasions to breach the policy, and I will need to find out when he gets home.

I do know this……I will NOT be signing any paperwork. It is not my responsibility to be there at school to make sure he has his uniform on…I send him to school with his correct uniform. I am not sure what he is doing at school to have his uniform changed. If there is to be any signing of paper work, Hayden can sign it.  He is almost 16 and needs to take responsibility for his own actions.

WHY cant the school re-enforce their own policy at the High School? It seems like a double standard to me, Worried about uniform, not worried about how they use the computers?

Looking forward to finding out why Hayden has the note, and how he can decide to fix this situation….will keep you posted.

Do you ever have A Letter from your kids school?
