Got involved with a teacher while my daughter attended there. She would have me pick her up at school during school hours at different times of the day for encounters and was into drugs. I later found out she was married too. I kept wondering what if something happened while she was gone and the kids were in P.E., lunch, or where ever they were during her planning time? Not a good sign!
