This school's administration is out of control They suspended a 5 year old for a month for getting kicked 1st and reacting. I'd love to write more, but legal action is pending. In short we are active involved in our kids lifes (coach there sports teams, do homework with them, spend lots of time with them in activities with friends etc...) I am moving out of the district. I have put my kid in private school and there is a real issue with honesty in the Principals office. Legal action is also probably going be filed against the principal with the NYS Dept of Education we are just examining our options and seeing what is best for our kids and the community. A lot of parents have complained to us about the administration.
