Well, so much for Della getting through the first few days with no complications. Yesterday during recess a little boy took Della's hat and glasses and threw them on the ground. Then, when Della tried to get them back, he grabbed them and ran off. Even though my twins are in different classes, Angel chased him and tried to get them back for her. I guess even some of the girls that she plays with tried to get them back as well. This is all new to her so she didn't know what to do. When the bell rang the boy ran to class and dropped her stuff. Della went in to her teacher crying and told her what happened! To my disgust, Della and Angel told me what happened on the way home from school. I didn't know anything from the teacher, and she has been so good to us! Della did not know who the boy was. So this morning I asked Della to point him out to me. His parents were not around to discuss the issues. I went in to the class and asked the teacher for a moment to talk. She asked if it was about the incident. I told her that I was so distraught about the event and would not have it happen again. She agreed that it was a problem and told her students that things like this would be inappropriate. I found out that this boy was in Angel's class. Della's teacher promised to discuss with the child and Angel's teacher about the problem and what the results would be if it were to happen again. I'm just so frustrated because we had such wonderful days to begin with, and this has been a huge hump. I am just so frustrated that he picked her out of the kindergarten classes to pick on. I think the biggest thing is that all of the kids have been given kindergarten hats to wear at recess, so it's not like she's the only one wearing a hat. I think it's the majority of the kindergarteners. Is her alopecia that obvious? He wasn't even in her class. Maybe he knows Della through Angel's class. They all meet to play together and we get in line at Angel's class in the morning to go into the classroom. I'm not sure how this came about, all I know is that it needs and will stop. The school nurse and the kindergarten teachers and I are writing an excerpt about alopecia to all the parents to include in the newsletter. They are going to be requested to explain and discuss the information with their children. Maybe this will expand the knowledge to the parents and children and reduce the teasing.
