Livy has missed a number of days because of seizures and doctors’ appointments which is what likely triggered the notice. It is probably an oversight in the system that needs to be addressed since Livy goes to a special needs school and information could be conveyed about her disabilities.
However, this is one more instance of pouring salt on the wound. Have we become a bit used to it? Yes. Perhaps because we already see how far behind she is and will always be based on her Individualized Education Plan (IEP), her test scores, doctors’ forms, and everywhere else we go where there are kids. Nonetheless, it never feels good.
