Suspended from school

    Trying to come up with ways to force the school's hand by appealing to random bits of legislation or codes of conduct is a bad idea, I'd highly recommend you disregard all the advice along those lines.

    As much as this situation is a major hassle for you, and the school can hopefully find some kind of compromise to help you out, it would set a really poor example in a sensitive situation to seek to force the school's hand. This would likely be a worse outcome than keeping the child home from school for an extra day.

    To add to suggestions along the lines of trying for an online meeting, perhaps you could also suggest meeting at the end of the school day on Friday, instead of the start of school Monday?

    Good luck!
