That is great news. But didn't homebound seem like a year long banishment into isolation?

So glad to hear this, and that your son made it through with his parents' help.

Thank you for the update. I'm glad that it worked out and he can graduate with his class.

It is really nice when posters return with updates. I appreciate it very much and a lot of others on C-D do as well.

I am glad he will graduate.

I'm glad everything is going good. Far too often, the future of a teenager isn't decided by them, but rather forced upon them by over zealous people in a position of authority, as well as zero tolerance and other stupid laws/rules. It is good to hear you managed to find a reasonable way to not have your child's future destroyed.
