Re: [IPp] Pumper Problem in School in FL - TAKE NOTE
<<From: email @ redacted (Marion, mom to Gabe)
Thank you for making us aware of this unfortunate incident. Gabriel attends
a small private school and we have no official 504 or IEP in place and so far
have not needed one.
However, I have now written the school a letter and enclosed a copy of the
letter describing the "pump/pager" incident.
I am grateful that you shared this with us and hope you resolve it with the
school district. >>
I think that's a great idea. My Luke is in elementary school (public) and of
course it's small enough that EVERYONE there knows him & what the pump is - 2
more kids w/ DM also have pumps there (one lone DM'er left on MDI now). But
the middle school & high school that he'll most likely attend are much bigger,
so I think I'll introduce myself early to those principals & get them a copy of
the letter. If Trevor's principal (middle school) doesn't remember me yet,
that will help her. Hopefully they'll act now. I know of 1 child w/ DM at the
middle school, not sure of the high school.
Also, so glad to hear that you & Gabe are getting past the pump startup issues
- sounds like things are going well for you. Hope they continue!
Shelly V, mom to Luke, 7, dx'd 10/99 & pumping 3/01 & to Trevor, 11 & Kate, 9
