Seclusion and Restraint Sample Letter

Sample Letter to Request School Investigation (Restraint)

(Date)

(Principal)
(Name of school)
(Address of school)

Re: (Child’s name)

Dear (Principal),

I am the parent of (child’s name). I have been informed that school staff recently used restraint on my child. I am very concerned about this restraint, especially because (it is my understanding that two adult staff members sat on my child in order to restrain him). I am also concerned that (child)’s Behavior Intervention Plan was not implemented during this incident. Therefore,  I am writing to request that (school system) conduct an investigation into the use of restraint on (child) on (date/dates), and that a copy of the investigation be provided to me.

 

Please advise me about the status of this request within 10 days of the date of this letter. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Sincerely,

 

(Your name)
