Major mess-up at my ds award ceremony last night. After speaking with the assistant principal 2 months ago to confirm that ds would be getting honored at the schools award assembly and being told that yes - they would arrange everything; i specifically asked if i needed to do something, did they need the contact for local air force person - and was told 'no' they take care of it.... our entire family - 2 sets of grandparents, aunts, cousin etc.... attend (all from out of town) and NOTHING is done - not even a small acknowledgement that our ds is going to be missing graduation because he will be at BCT and could everyone applaud for a job well done. Spoke briefly with the principal and asst principal last night and they tell me no one from the Air Force contacted them. I was too upset to say anything more except how disapointed i was. One grandfather is so angry he goes to find principal in the office and give his point of view. Entire family including ds is UPSET! Spoke to the principal this morning when i was calmer.... apparently no one followed up on an email or made any extra effort - principal is very sorry, not what should've happened etc... and they are trying to arrange for something at the next board meeting with media coverage - BUT SHOULDNT THIS HAVE BEEN THE LOCAL ALO'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO DO????
