Travis Unified School District- Feel Free To Screw Up And Waste My Time. I Don’t Mind, Really.

I gave them all of the information that they requested when I registered him back in June. I distinctly remember doing this because I thought it was a pain in the butt and it took me two trips to and from the school district office and the Pediatric Clinic to get it done right. I did this trip with two cranky children and got several dirty looks from the people in the office and was asked if I would like to come back another time without them, to which I replied, “No thank you,” because any other time would have required paying a babysitter or going through this again. Oh yeah. I remember this clearly.

So now I get to jump these hoops AGAIN due to someone’s incompetence.

This time I think I will bring my camera with me so I can take a close up picture of me handing these to someone in their office. Then I’m going to make the person sign a reciept stating that I had, indeed, delivered these. That way, when I start getting holier than thou letters from the school district again, I have some proof. ]]>

    < ![CDATA[Hi Lou,

    You know what? That's funny because I've been getting them too and I remember it very clearly when I got my son's physical and dental check ups and I physically went to the school's office to give the results to them.

    A friend of mine got one too and she said she had given it to them 2x already. I have no clue what's really going on but it is really annoying specially when it's so hard to make an appointment on base for just a regular check up.]]>

    uggggggggggggh. “Nuff said!

  3. I’ve never heard of a school asking for dental exams! Weird. And seriously, what a pain!

    Dental and Medical records??? All we ever had to provide were immunization records and sign a medical form listing any unusual medical conditions such as drug allergies, asthma, or things the school needed to be aware of. Sort of a “need to know” thing. And, oh, yes, I’ve done the whole doctor’s office run here and there thing with several children in tow. Loads of fun!!!

  5. Dental sounds weird to me too! Can’t you call and get them faxed over? When they said I did not do it, when I had in fact done it, I called and got it faxed.
