UG. Crap going on with our school not wanting to allow our little one to ride the bus. The State says the maxium kids can walk is 1.5 miles,(Although every OTHER district in our county buses EVERYONE no matter where they live) We are 1.45 miles from school, so they said NO bus for her, due to one half of one tenth of a mile.
We are hoping her Auspergers and Tourettes Syndromes will help her get on the bus. She gets terrible muscle spasms in her neck and shoulders from the ticcing and movement disorder, and I can't imagine her carrying her 22 lb back pack for 3 miles a day without getting very badly hurt. Also, the Auspies causes her to be a bit naive about things. I'm terrified, as there are THREE sex offenders registered as living between our house and the school. That, and NO sidewalks, plus a set of railroad tracks don't "qualify as hazards" to the assholes in our school district. I deeply regret buying a house in this town.
So, that means I can't get a job, so I can drive her back and forth from school every day? I pray the 504 meeting (special circumstances) goes well. Of course, that will get her on the "Special Bus." She's going to have enough challenges with her odd social skills. Getting off of the Special Bus every morning, instead of the regular bus which goes by our home every day and she has ridden for the last 6 years
is not going to help in the being bullied department.
Also, I've had a fucking migraine since Monday afternoon. I can't break it, even with strong meds, massages, ice packs, hot compresses etc. The pain is wearing me down.
