Hi, I have a happy 6 year old son who is very excited to be in the 1st grade. He loves his teacher and loves his school. This is the second week of school. On 9/9/15 I picked him up early for a doctors appointment and I went about my normal routine of asking him how his day went. He replied it was ok but I got really embarrassed during lunch. I asked him why and he began to tell me while standing in the lunch line him and his friend were talking when the lunch aide approached him and removed him from where he was and took him further up the line to where a group of girls were standing and asked the girls to watch him because he talks a lot. He was devastated and so was I. I assured him that I would get to the bottom of it. The next day I made a verbal complain to the principal. Later that day I had not heard back from her so I sent her an email. About an hour later she called me and said she didn't want to send me an email and she thought by talking on the phone would a faster way of getting a hold of me. She proceeded to tell me that she investigated she asked my sons teacher if he appeared sad after lunch and his teacher responded no. She then spoke with the lunch aide regarding the situation and she denied what my son had told me she said the lunch aide told her that she separated the boys because it appeared they were behaving rambunctious. As a parent I have a serious concern regarding this situation. A six year old child will never fabricate a story like this unless it really did happened. Please help me with how to go about making a complaint with higher authority. I totally disagree with how the principal went about and concluded her investigation. I'm concern of my child's safety because this lunch aide still works at the school!!!!

I agree with the other ladies, he wasn't humiliated, he was a bit embarrassed because he got into trouble.
What do you think the teachers and aides are at the school to do? Let kids run amok? The aid has probably worked with children for a while and, like Dove said, wanted to prevent the boys becoming louder.
You are making too much of a big deal out of it. There are going to many more times your son is going to get in "trouble" no matter how you have brought him up. You need to let the teachers do their jobs or you will run out of schools in your area to send him to.
Yes, we all want to protect our children and don't like other people telling them off, but sometimes we have to step back and let our children make mistakes and learn by them. Hopefully your son has learned that, yes he can talk in the lunch line but he will need to keep the volume down.

Are you truly concerned about your son's safety over a lunch aide? If you are truly concerned and unhappy with how things are being dealt with then it is not a good school. Pull your son out and put him in a new school. Save yourself all the drama and stress dealing with people upsetting your boy. But be aware in your child's school life situations like this are constant. That is a guarantee. Nothing in life runs smooth.

I teach my son to be respectful and obedient. He doesn't get into trouble and he's not a bad kid. The cafeteria is for lunch and socializing with his peers if he was talking with his peer in line that doesn't give her the right to humiliate him...
