Edited at the bottom of the post.
So this note came home today, attached to some unfinished classwork:
Dear Mr and Mrs Headless,
XXXX's study habits are very disappointing to me. I'm wondering if it's beyond his control and he may need a medical evaluation.
My stomach is in knots. I feel like I'm going to throw up.
It was hand written, and that is all that it said. No, "Hey lets get together and talk about this," or "I'll call to talk more about this."
I want to cry. I'm scared. I don't know what this means.
We've been working with him all year on getting classwork done but on todays' work, he said that he wasn't the only one that didn't finish, but the only one that was required to bring the work home, (per our instructions. We have asked that he bring home anything that is not finished in a day.)
Are there any teachers out there that can help me? (Elementary teachers.) Is there any situation that you would have written the same note? What, as a teacher, do you think?
What do you think it means? What would you do? (I'm planning on doing nothing until I talk to HD about it, and then talking to the teacher. But seriously? WTH?)
I'm trying not to panic here.
EDITED: I was at the school today for another reason and tried to stop in to see Teacher X to see if we could set up a time to talk. Wait for it...Gone. Yep, gone for today and tomorrow. She dropped that bomb and bolted out of town. Nice. I can't even express how I feel about this, but thought you all should know that there won't be anything new until next week. Ugh.
