What would you do if your child got hurt and nothing was done?

My oldest son is in Senior Kindergarten, and goes to school every other day, all day. A while back he fell and hit his head by the fench, first thing in the morning, before the bell rang for school to start (he takes the bus to school). He asked 4 different teachers and staff for ice for his head, and each time he was refused it. When he got home after school, he told me what happened, and he had a huge goose bump on his head...big, and he has a hard head, so I know he had to hit it hard. It is school policy to call the parents for any type of head injuries. The fact that I wasn't called, and they completely ignored my son's request for ice made me furiously angry. He could have had a concussion. I went to the school and confronted the princpal, she was very apologetic, but wouldn't let me talk to the staff involved. I thought that my son deserved an apology from the teachers/staff involved in not listening to him. How would you have responded to this?

Really ! anything could've happened to your son with an head injury & thank God nothing did. You should get in contact w/ his Principal's Superintendent & take actions from there. It's their responsibility to make sure that the children are safe & kept from harm, You should have taken him to the hospital got him checked out & had the school district pay for his medical bills. I would have !

I think I would have gone mad! My 5 year old son came home just a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I noticed was a massive lump on his forehead. This had happened at school breakfast club as he has to go there 3 mornings a week so I can go to college. I asked him how he did it and if he had a letter in his bag for me? No he said "they were going to text you"!!! Need less to say I was not impressed, I did go into breakfast club and they were very apologetic, one person told another, they told another and they all assumed they had passed the buck.
