I just wanted to give a quick update on Seth’s school situation. Today he brought home another letter from the principal. This one stated:
“Today I had the opportunity to consult with Mrs…(the assistant superintendent) and Ms….(the director of special education) regarding the timing of your appeal, the appeal process, and subsequent communications that would occur regarding this issue. Since the whole process would most likely take us into a window of time at the end of a school year when moving a student does not occur, with their agreement, I am permitted to approve your son remaining at Stratford Landing Elementary School through the remainder of the school year.”
The people she mentioned are individuals that I emailed over the weekend and I received an email from one of this morning apologizing for the principal’s behavior on behalf of Fairfax County.
I’m trying not to gloat…..It’s not easy.
This morning, before the email from the county or the letter from the principal, I read Isaiah 54:9-10
“This exile is just like the days of Noah for me: I promised then that the waters of Noah would never again flood the earth. I’m promising now no more anger,no more dressing you down. For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won’t walk away from you,my covenant commitment of peace won’t… fall apart.” The God who has compassion on you says so.”
Those were the exact words that I needed to hear.
Thanks to everyone who has offered up prayer and encouragement.
Thanks to God for having compassion on me and for making a covenant commitment of peace with me.
