Concerned citizen encourages attendance at School Board meetings

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

This letter is about reaching out to all the parents, grandparents, citizens of Superior and all taxpayers. Do you care about the children in the Superior school system? Ever worry about if the children are safe? Do you attend the School Board meetings?

The next one is May 15. All of you should try attending two or three meetings and see for yourselves the chaos our kids are going through daily. Even many of the staff work under stress and harassments. It’s a hostile work environment for a good many of our school employees.

This hostile and fearful environment is also alive and well with our children. There have been at least seven reported cases of sexual assault in the primary grades. Bullying and assaults are common place. These are criminal acts! There was a poisoning incident as well.

What did the administrators do? As usual, nothing. They didn’t even call the First Responders to check the child out. They didn’t even call the parents of the child who was poisoned.

There has to be changes in our School Board. They have a sign out front of the school stating “Kids First.” Do they care for our children – boasting catch phrases for the public to see, but, withholding the real information that the public should know. Their sign should say “Beware all who enter here.”

I’m speaking on behalf of our parents who have been hurt, angered beyond the limits. Their children have been and still are being assaulted, threatened and don’t even want to go to school because they are afraid. A school should be a safe place for our children who are taught varied topics and teachings they will need in adult life. How can they focus on learning when they are terrorized by classmates? Ignoring parents and children in need of help, and sweeping the chaos under the rug is no acceptable response.

Our School Board denies much of the reported complaints, ignores the seriousness of the situation. The Head Administrator chooses to remain in denial about the incidents,but, it is also noticed that several School Board members have been infected with a serious case of selective memory loss, or pretend ignorance of situations.

We need immediate change and actions in our schools! Let’s all work together to effect the changes we need. Children are products of their environments; not just in the home, but, the schools as well.
