make sure you pick up your child on time from now on
Leave as early as you can or have a back up plan.
just call them in advance if your gonna be late.Make sure you have good reasons as well.And and for the principal...dont worry about them,its there job man and comes with the territory
Why should they have to stay late everyday when it is your kid, it is not like they are getting paid extra. Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on their part. They have things they would rather do than sit around and wait for you. Being taken advantage of by an absentee parent was most likely not in their job description.

She's not a bad mother
Its not like shes showin up late because she partying, she workin her *** off with not much help. can you understand that?
ive got two toddlers and one infant ..i know the deal..u welcome
Yeah really... No offense but maybe you need to be more responsible or get the kiddo into aftercare if getting there on time is an issue... Why would you leave your kid hanging out wondering where you are repeatedly? Lots of places have aftercare that's affordable... Talk to your school about what the options are...
Hey I ain't knocking ya... Single mom myself, but I have a sister who can always help out... And I didn't say it was free... Why are you late? Work? School? I just mean your kiddo has to come first... What's worse lose your kid or lose your job? Cause that's what CPS is going to do, it's just the harsh reality... Those peeps don't care too much about issues and problems. They think everyone is perfect...
You don't have family, friends anyone you could count on to at least pick your kid up and keep them until you get there? Or drop them off somewhere? Heck maybe you and another mom can split days??? Gotta make a change is all I'm saying...
You must be pretty late since most buildings have teachers and principals who stay well after dismissal.
I can tell you that where I grew up and went to school 30 minutes after the last car rider and you were still at the office parents were called, 15 minutes later police were called... They don't fool around in the elementary schools in some states...
Schools should make provision for parents who can't pick up there children on time I mean anything can happen from the time you leave work ask them to put there threat in writing so that you can reply to them ask them to find a workable solution if they don't want to seek help from others in your position and go to the media
Who is going to pay the person who "makes the provision?" Why is it okay to assume that someone else should take responsibilty? I don't mind doing an occasional favor but, your kids, your responsibility.
i assume you are a teacher, if you are thank God my child was not in your care with that attitude, secondly its those hardworking parents rushing from work who pays your salary
I have to admit, I laughed and laughed. You think I do not have my own children that I have to pick up? Yet, you expect me to stay to watch other's? If I only put in 6.5 hours a day, I could see your gripe about salary, but in reality, I arrive at work at 7am and leave at 5pm. Today is Sunday and I will be spending about 3 hours preparing for the week. I take classes (paid for by me) all summer and must renew my license (paid for by me). I tutor after school for FREE two days a week. I don't have a bad attitude until I feel I am being taken for granted. My students and parents love me and the job I do for their children. I love them whole-heartedly and it shows. I am only in my 7th year of teaching and I make FAR, FAR less than I did in the business world, AND I work a lot harder now to make certain I do a fantastic job than I did in business!
In reality, I make just over minimum wage. I am an educated woman who gives her best. Why do people think I owe them more? If a parent calls and needs a 'provision,' yeah, I would make it. But to assume that it is okay because they "pay my salary" is very sad and very unfair.
Oh, and by the way, may I have a pay raise?
you choose your career so stop bitching about we didnt tell you to take a career that pays you just over the min wage dont you think we in the businness world also get taken for granted go home put the kids to bed work on a deadline. At least im gratefull you could see in my sons teachers her love and dedication for her kids and job. If you dont like it get out.
So, because You pay me, I am at your beck and call 24/7 to watch your kid?
Who said I didn't love my job? Go back and reread. What I don't love is being taken advantage of because you "pay my salary!"
Your child's welfare is most important right now. You have to leave school earlier or arrange for someone to pick her up. You may have to ask a family member even though you don't get along. Sometimes you have to be on friendly terms with family or friends/kiss arse to survive in this world.
Your childs welfare, is more important, than your school. You should have considered that, before enroling in school. Hopefully, you can work something out with your school, to allow you to pick him up at his school.
You are correct. Life, and being a parent, is hard. I have been where you are. I didn't give up on myself, or my responsibilities, and I am proud of the result.
I wish you every success, in your journey through life.
Why are u consistently late and how late?
Perhaps you need to appeal to the school board. or change schools Or have another mum pick her up for you, in return for a baby sit.
10 to 15 minutes, 30 minutes is nothing
I would suggest to change school if possible they are giving you too much of a hard time.
Build a support system.Make arrangements with friends or family( ahead of time)to be on stand by in case you have to work late. Maybe you can befriend another mother in your child's class & do the same for her if she needs it. You don't want to complicate your life more by involving CPS.
Is there any way you can transfer your child to a school closer to your work/school, where you won't have to deal with the traffic?
Unless CPS has nothing at all to do the school is responsible for your child. Keep in mind they have to have huge evidence like it is every day that it is happening. Further, the school would have to call the police first. Your kid is more important than your school.
Actually, CPS might be able to assist you depending on where you reside. They may have a "proactive" child care program. Instead of reactive when they put your girl into the system. Also, you might contact a private child advocacy agency seeking legal assistance. If the child's schedule was upset due to relocation you might be able to get her zoned back to the old school. School boards run from legal challenges in most cases. Good Luck
Tell him to shove it and that you cant afford it, and that there is no possiable way you can do that and afford to put your child into school..
I don't think they would really care... It's only their responsibility to keep kids until a certain time and after that they are going to either contact the parents or the police...
So you have to get some one else to pick them up or get them to wait some where are walk some where with some one you can trust
So her child should be left out unattended? Who's responsible then? The school, yet it is truly the patent who needs to work something out. This parent isn't the only one who has to figure something out. I did. Why can't she?
make arrangements for your child to be picked up after school
you really dont want to have to deal with cps because once u are in thier files your life wont be the same ever again
its ok, just wait n see
