I am aware of numerous acts of bullying. My two children have been subjected to name calling, intimidation, social exile, threats of physical violence, and acts of physical violence (from shoving to head locks). None of these acts resulted in disciplinary action more severe than a 3-hour in office suspension.Five weeks before the end of school, a very minor and final incident happened - a 4th grade boy decided that he would regularly mispronounce my 5th grade daughter’s name and wouldn’t stop. I contacted the school in writing on April 28. I asked for the boy to be spoken with and for him to give my daughter an apology.However, instead of a reasonably simple solution, the administration decided to prohibit the 5th, 4th, and 3rd graders from playing together. This group always has recess and lunch together. Those that were friends were also prohibited from playing together, which included my daughter and a few 4th grade girls she was friends with. The administration stated that each class would work within their own classrooms to learn better communication and playground skills. The administration never worked with the 5th grade class and work within the 4th grade class did not happen until two weeks later. Finally, during last two weeks, the 4th and 5th graders allowed to play together. A teacher told my daughter, that the 3rd graders still couldn’t play with the older children because what was worked on did not apply to them. This is in complete conflict with what the principal and assistant principal communicated to me in writing.My daughter never received an apology and I was never told that the child involved in this situation was ever directly spoken with.It still amazes me that the administration went to such great lengths to avoid having to take action against this boy for something so minor. If they are willing to do this, think of what other bullying behavior they would be willing to ignore or minimize. St. Leander states that it is a “No Bully Zone.” They just don’t say that the only people they say no to are the parents and children who report the bullying.
