thankfully rhyan received the minimum suspension for yesterday’s ordeal, his principal went to bat for him before the school board & was able to get ten days instead of much more.
he’ll be enrolled in a program offered by the local ymca that works directly with schools to help kids with their class assignments & homework while suspended, which in turn shows on their school record as an in-school suspension vs an out of school suspension — great news!
we had a really good talk last night, and i think his biggest concern now is how he’ll be treated when he returns to school. i told him by then it will have blown over & no one will be worried about it.
that being said, he’s ready to move on & forward with this … and so are we.
[many thanks to each and every one of you, for the support & encouragement]
