Nobody is on the same page or knows what thier doing. This school is a joke they send out school letters after the date on the paper they push blame around. I've caught them lying to save their own ass. Horrible staff they should clean house and start over. Not one person had any intentions to help with the problem so if I could close this school down I would in a heartbeat for the sake of our children.
