My son is being bullied at school and here’s what we did about it

It’s late, and I’m tired, so I’m just going to jump right into things tonight. 

Lizze and I met with Elliott’s teachers this morning in regards to our suspicion that Elliott might be getting bullied at school. We were concerned but didn’t want to jump the gun because it was possible that Elliott was misinterpreting what was happening.  

We just needed to get our facts straight before deciding how best to handle this.

As it turns out, Elliott is indeed being bullied by a kid in his class. It was also the same kid we had suspected as well. What we hadn’t prepared for were the teachers to know already about it.  That part caught me off guard because I had assumed if there was a problem, they would have reached out to us.

Apparently, the teachers are well aware of the problem, but they haven’t been able to catch him in the act. 
According to them, this kid is sneaky and only does these things when the teachers aren’t around or aren’t paying attention because they’re teaching a group or something. I do understand that, but I don’t understand why we had to go to the teachers.  

Shouldn’t they have come to us?
