There is something wrong at the school and I do plan to take it up at the school board. The adults in the school want to teach kids about bullying but they are the ones that are the big bullies. They deliberately give out false information do not do their jobs and harass people that are not doing anything to them. If I could move my kids out of the school I would. If you don't have to have your kid it's in the school don't it is the worst schools that I've seen
