My daughter is 6 years old and will not defend herself. On Monday afternoon 2/13/12 I noticed that she had scratches on her back. All week long she has been coming home with new scratches and I had called the principle on Wednesday morning with concern with no call back. Yesterday 2/16/2012 she came home again with scratches on her collar bone and all around her neck and back. She had scrapes on her elbow and her shin. I called the principle and voiced my concern and again he has not called me back but the school nurse called me about a bruise on one of her eyebrows and the bus coordinator called me..pathetic huh?? my daughter goes to BCEMS in vermont. is anyone having similar problems with their children. a few of my friends are also having issues with their kindergarten kids getting bullied too. I did find out the name of the child from another child. I hope this stops.

I would climb the authority ladder. If the principal won't call back, get a hold of the superintendent. If he/she doesn't contact you within a day then either show up at his/her office in person, or call the authorities. Physical injury on your child is not something you or she should have to put up with. Make a stink. It's the school's responsibility to provide a safe place for children to learn and if it is happening to your child and going ignored on the campus, it's likely happening to others too.

If you DON'T take action, on the flip side, it wouldn't take much for a teach to call CPS on you to cover their own butts in this case. Make the first move, and be proactive. File a complaint against the school.

I wouldn't tolorate this for a moment. My kids are way more important than some principal without the backbone to deal with a concerned parent.

Just my opinion, though.
