My 7 year old got a note in the bus(with bad words). Read few line, asked the front and back seat kids is it there and gave it to the second bus driver who is walking inside the bus.
she couldn't say clearly how she got it. First she told "it landed on my head". After en quire repeatedly she is telling she is not sure in which part of the body she felt. But she is sure she get it in the middle of her ride.
I got a call from the school saying that she read it loud to others and she had something in her hand while entering the bus.As she had something they are think it was this note.she is telling lie.
They suspendend her from bus for one day.
I am sure she don't know the meaning of any of those words.
Will it be a black mark in her school record forever.
please somebody advise us what to do.We talked to the school already and signed the suspension copy.
should we ask them for the transportation video.

The most important lesson here is that she not repeat what she read. She did not do anything wrong, she found a note and read it, at seven she did not understand the vulgarity of the content. If it had been a note about puppies and butterflies would she be in trouble? I'd ask to speak to the principal and question why she was punished and you want to be sure it is not documented in her school records. Was she disciplined for the content, or not being truthful about where she found it?

She is seven, it's hardly going to follow her for the remainder of her days. Ask to see the note, if she wrote it then ask her about it. If you are calm and reassuring she is more likely to be honest with you about whether she wrote it and why. If she did not write it, and she is only 7, so maybe she did not write it, ask her who gave it to her. If she "found" it then explain why it is not ok to say such words to other kids and if she is ever unsure she can ask you.
Depending on the content of the note, was it just a few naughty words or was it truly vulgar, then press the school to find out where it came from.

She is punished for reading it load.As it had some word repeated she thought it rhymes,so she read half of it.
They didn't find whose note it is.They are telling that she had something when entering the bus. she is telling she was having gloves.
She is sure she got it in the middle of the ride(bus).
we made them to mention that she is not aware of the meaning, and her father signed it.Will it affect her in feature.
we are not aware that it will be maintained in her record.

It's not her hand writing.she is telling that she got it in her seat in middle of the ride.
Yes it is a vulgar note.
Can I ask them to show me the video of the bus. Will the rule permit.
Will it be in the record for life long.
