Below is an e-mail from my mom to my sister. It's about Haven. Since my mom is a writer, it's a little off on the ACTUAL facts, but is basically true.
I regret to inform you that Haven has been banned from entering her school before 7:45 AM.
Children who arrive before 07:45 are required to enter the cafeteria until time to go to class. Haven refuses to enter the cafeteria. (Her dad drops her off in the mornings.)
The first day she had a melt down, and a teacher escorted her on to MS Tildwell's class. The second day a teacher told Haven to go to the cafeteria, and Haven calmly, but firmly, told her NO. She was going to go straight to her teacher's class. The third day had Haven personally escorted by the principal of Bethany to her classroom. The fourth day Haley receives an email requesting Haley that Haven is to be dropped off after 7:45 in the morning. End of story... Haven is in pre-kindergarten and managed not to visit the cafeteria once.
