Not SF related ~ Child dies at school
My SD came home today and told me a boy from her class, who has a 'disease' fell at school & the ambulance came to take him to the hospital and he died.
Any thoughts on how to deal with this? By the time SD told me this, it was after 5 and the school was closed. They did not send home a note or notify parents in any way. SD is upset and I'm upset that we were not notified so we could be prepared to discuss this with her. (I'm annoyed that they have an automatic telephone calling system that calls parents with reminders all the time and the one time I feel we NEED to be notified of something, it isn't utilized)
Am I overreacting to think that the school has a responsibility to make parents aware and maybe even offer grief counseling? SD is in the 4th grade and the boy was in her class. It probably wouldn't bother me as much that they didn't call or send a note if it hadn't happened AT school.
