So am I very impressed. It's so nice people have helped out with this letter, also people have been PMing me as well. I am so grateful and touched that the women here spent so much time and effort on a perfect stranger.
I love you guys.

The good news is my dd has not been bullied since Oct.18 so I am just holding on to the letter just in case she gets bullied again. I think the teacher is more atuned to this one bully child now. The kids were out in the yard building a shelter with the teacher for the last hour today. I wondered why bully child was sitting in the class alone when I went to pick up dd.
After school dd said that he was trashing the work they were all doing so the teacher sent him back to the class.

honestly, i wouldnt wait until there is another incident of bullying to hand teh school the letter. I would still hand it/mail it to them - because they in fact need to make sure that whatever policy they have adopted for their school is getting followed

This kid obviously has issues, and it's good that the teacher has finally taken notice. I'm glad that Angie has been going to school in peace, and I hope this other kid gets some help dealing with whatever he's going through.

If you don't send the letter, will you pay the bond?

I totally concur with KJoselyn. This is a serious matter and the described incidents should never have happened to your daughter and they should never happen to anyone else's. The only way to hope the same scenario won't play out is to have an open discussion and review of policies. Besides, if details need to be discussed further with admin, etc. then it will be fresh in your mind and you daughter's mind.

It should also give you a greater peace of mind with the issue of the bond, rather than a nagging feeling that they are going to meet your needs. I doubt you would get any bond money back if something were to happen later.

Anyway, that is what I would do because I would want to know that they are going to be able to handle serious issues and enforce, revise, and/or new implement policies regarding bullying before I gave them that kind of lump sum.

I agree with most of the other posters. Please send in that letter! Many mamas helped out with it and just because your dd isn't be bullied doesn't mean that someone else isn't.

I appreciate every one's help on it. I asked my dd if anyone else is being bullied as well and she said no. So, again, I decided to hold on to that letter for future if I need to use it.
I gave them the bond money.
My dd LOVES the school and her teacher. She's very VERY happy there.
Thank you again.
Michele
