I am disappointed in this school. When my child has gotten hurt they don't let me know. They did not even let me know when the kids found a beheaded bunny on the playground which has been tramatic on our child especially when in first grade has not had to deal with death. They did not even talk to the kids about it. Lazy teachers. But you can call for stupid, things like having us leave work to bring sneakers to school so they can go out for recess. REALLY!! Priorities misplaced if you ask me. There are other issues in regards to education that never get addressed in a timely manner, since the teachers and staff never bring it to your attention until late in the year (if at all) no matter how many times you ask if they are doing well. I am glad my child is no longer in this school. Be aware parents.
