My son has attended this school for 3 years now, going on his 4th year. I've had issues with the way this school is run in the past, but now that the remote learning has started I am beyond disappointed in the way the principle and staff are handling the transition between in person learning and remote learning. We are given absolutely NO heads up about not having a class for the first hour of each day. I assume we are suppose to just know there will be NO class? Upon trying to reach out to the principle with my concerns, I was hung up on twice as the principle clearly can NOT handle the pressure of so many parents' complaints! Our students are learning only 30 minutes a class while having Multiple 40 minute down times (No class or work being done). The only response I am getting is How are we supposed to run a class when we are down teachers and our staff is all working as tech support. My son is in one of the most import classes of his elementary school term and he has learned NOTHING!!! This school is a JOKE!
