Update on Summer Camp for Alex

I'm just too tired to try and come up with a catchy title for this one.

Alex did end up going to his camp program yesterday.  I called the transport company and they said he was on the list and the driver should be there at 7:20.  The driver actually showed up at 7:05, which meant that Alex didn't get his full screen time but he accepted it well.

The driver was very nice, greeting Alex by name.  Alex requested his favourite radio station and the driver replied quickly with a "No problem at all."  It's a very pleasant change to have a driver who actually likes his job (or at least can fake liking it).

Alex's teacher called at 9:30 to let me know what was going on.  She only received notice of who was going to be in the class that morning but the school board should have sent me an orientation package over a month ago.  She said she would look into what happened as it appeared that the other children had gotten their packages.

It's still frustrating.  Especially given that I spent the last week of school trying to get someone in the school board to talk to me.  I got a lot of "not my department" run arounds and people who just didn't call me back.  You would think that someone, somewhere might have put this together and said "Hey, let's check and see if she got the package we were supposed to send" rather than brushing me off, but apparently not.

At least the people actually dealing with Alex are nice people who seem to have a good grasp on how to deal with him.  He seems to be having a good time.
