Welder Elementary is a horrible school, they treat parents as intruders. You are not allowed to walk your child to class or pick up from the classroom, makes you think they are hiding stuff from us. Also, they do not work with milk allergies and not supply lactose-free milk. They do not inform you when they take children off campus at times. They don't keep you updated with the events that go on at the school. Some teachers act like they are too good to be there and sound upset all the time.
