    "My decision was based on the feeling that she might fall and injure herself."

    Uhuh, I bet they don't have any sports teams either... Awww, poor quarterback has a booboo on his finger. That Principal is in need of a serious reality check!

    Decision was Not based on the Law

    I guess the principal has neever heard of the "Least restrictive environment", the ADA or 504 of the Rehab ACt. Looks like Shepherd needs to d some disability awareness in their community!

    Some people don't get it and unfortunately they never will.

    What a great story! Hats off to those that organized the special event and to all those who attended it! I hope that Principal and the School authorities feel ashamed of what they did. Shame on them.

    Our family had our own special glory in April when our daughter (T12 incomplete) was awarded a "Special Award" at the Victoria Sports Award Ceremony "In Recognition Of Outstanding Courage, Overcoming Adversity & Hoping To Return To Competition". She was the only one to receive a cheering, standing ovation, that included Olympic and World Champion medalists (Canada). I think we were all in tears. It doesn't get any better than that, unless it is a complete recovery.

    My awe and admiration is for all of you on this Board that post such inspiring stories of your struggles. Good luck to you all.

    Sincerely, Darlene

    The principal lost an incredible opportunity to show the commitment of his and his school's commitment to show that they care. I hope that he and his superiors are kicking themselves over this lost opportunity.

    As the principal probably said later "would somebody please help me remove my head from my ass?"

    Response: "No, it would take too long and you might injure yourself"

    Good for her! Awesome.

    Onward and Upward!
