I told her I was unsure how long it would take and that I would update her which I did.

As I said I am 35 minutes away with no lights no traffic. Any time the school calls (I’m first contact) I say “This is how long it will take me” and it has never been an issue.
Reading this it sounds like Mom valued her job over the child and is making the fact he had to be picked up and can’t go back to school the problem…

I was called 3xs for emergency pick ups this year and am 35 min from door to door. I’d simply tell the nurse “I’m at O’Hara and won’t make it for 35 minutes but I’m on my way” and it was never an issue.
