    Agree, Stay home as you have no dog in this fight. It's between the mother and father

    Avoid making trouble for yourself, embarrassing your son and your grandson, honor the request before you end up being trespassed and are never allowed to set foot on school property again.

    Pretty much. You are welcome to visit with the child when he is with Dad if Dad agrees. That's it. It is really not clear why you are showing up at the child's school and taking his blood sugar during class.

    Why are you going to take his blood sugar levels anyway?

    In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand what you write.

    Meaning what exactly? Are they or were they married? If they were never married, was your son's paternity ever established? If so, how was it established? Is there any sort of custody/visitation order?

    This seems a bit inconsistent with the statement that the mother doesn't want you to have any involvement.

    What is the reason why you (as opposed to one of the parents) were going to check his blood sugar?

    I guess this is a moot point now, but you obviously can do lots of things, and figuring out whether you should or shouldn't attend this meeting is not something about which you should be consulting with anonymous strangers on the internet. However, I'll say that most schools would likely exclude you based on the mother's objection.
