I received some devasting news on Friday upon picking Hannah up from her new school. Somehow or another, there was a serious lack of communication between the school and the school board. The school board has denied Hannah's admission. This came as a complete and utter shock, as I had received and paid her tuition bill which came from the school board. So how they 'didn't know' she was attending without 'permission' from them is beyond me. It is a mess and confusing and at the time, I was so distraught I could barely speak, so I walked away in a state of despair with my head spinning and my heart broken. The principal assured me there was no problem at all with Hannah and in fact, he had seen her making friends and fitting in very nicely. He feels terrible and I do believe him, he is a very nice man. I know he only follows the rules, he doesn't make them. I do know that the contract I signed did state that the Board has every right to revoke admission without reason at any time. That's exactly what they did.
So after many tears and discussions, we have come up with Plan B. Hannah loves that school and she deserves to be there after all she has gone through. Our only option is to move into the district. Moving the entire family at a moment's notice is out of the question, so tomorrow I will be apartment hunting in the district and as long as the place isn't completely disgusting, Hannah and I will be moving. Unbelievable. I don't see any other way around this. It will be a huge adjustment and a sacrifice to say the least, but that is the only way I can insure her attendance without being at the mercy of the School Board.
If I think too much about it, I feel completely overwhelmed and feel myself breaking down. So I am going to KEEP CALM and CARRY ON. At least that's the plan. Wish me luck - I'll keep you posted.
