Pull the rug out, put it right back

A student of mine moved with her family right before Thanksgiving. I was sad to see her go... she started the year late and it took weeks to bring her out of her shell. She struggled academically and socially and she was finally settling in and making her way. Then wham, her family moves.

That was 6 days ago.

Our registrar just emailed me to let me know that she's coming back tomorrow. We don't know the circumstances but they can't be good. This is a family with 4 school aged children and a toddler at home. They were sent to a new school earlier this year (ours), then pulled out to go to another, and now they are back.

Poor kiddos.
