2019-2020 9th Grade student.It''s like an animal house. Kids are outside at anytime of day. They are downtown on Broadway Street walking around. Safe from a school shooting; not on my kids life for sure. They also exchange classes outside by the roadside. How can that be safe.

my child plays football for the junior high and i have not seen such poor coaching in my entire life it seems to me if you are not wealthy or know somebody you do not play the coaches promise these kids they will get to play and they dont they threaen the children if the parents say anything they wont get to play they have a titeend that falls on the ground when the ball is snapped and wont take them out the game must be a coacheS SON all these kids work just as hard as the rest they should be given a chance but it is obvious nobody cares unless you have money
