This is a safety issue. 1 1/2 years ago my now 11-year-old son was threaten with scissors and told he would die in 7 days by a fellow student. I notified the Principal as well as the Superintendent of the situation. Nothing was done. Occasional situations have occurred since then but not to the previous scale. This boy has been extremely violent with others to the point of having them removed from the school in a wheel chair. Minor 2-day suspension issued. Now yesterday he pushed my son and a friend for no reason. My son's friend retaliated. The boy put his books down in the classroom came back to where my son and his friend were and hit the boy who initially hit him. All three boys were given detention. I want to know what course of action I can take if the Principal continues to be so incompetent in providing safety to the kids from this bully. As I stated my son was told he had to serve detention but I refused as he did nothing wrong. He did not retaliate when pushed and given the same punishment.
