A copy of the email I just sent:

Hi (teacher's name),

Just this morning poor Carson fractured his Ulna clear through and has a small fracture in his Radius as well. An even bigger bummer is that it is his right arm. His biggest concern is that he has to sit out during P.E. (I didn't laugh when he told me this - but I wanted to) followed by not being able to write and color. Being a mom of four boys I am sure this won't be the last broken bone, but Carson is my guinea pig and so I have no idea what I am doing or what course of action we will need to take for school, etc. Let me know what we need to do.
I will be calling an orthopod first thing Monday so we can get him evaluated and casted. As soon as I know the time I will email you, but for now all I can say is he will be missing some school on Monday.
Lastly, thanks for doing the fun little party at school. That has been a highlight for Carson this holiday season. It was a bit of a rough birthday and Christmas for us. Carson got both the Flu, and Strep over the break. (There's nothing like throwing up at the doctors office on your birthday). He got over his illnesses just in time to break his arm :(.
