In a Category By Itself

I'm pretty sure I started the "Are You Freakin' Kidding Me?" category when the blue Prius came to school.

I'll save you the trouble of reading previous posts along that vein by giving you this synopsis: crazy man harassing students and parents at our school; school administration has been less than stellar in its response.

I'm having heart palpitations now. I am grateful my boy is a number of classrooms away from the school entrance. The latest?

The crazy man in the blue Prius parked in the red zone at kindergarten pick-up/drop-off and watched the comings and goings Tuesday. The woman he harassed before went straight to the principal's office. It was a day for the "she" of the s/he interim co-principal. Her reaction? "This is public property. There's nothing we can do about it. If you'd like to contact the police, as a citizen, feel free to do so."

When this guy actually goes and starts picking kids off with a shotgun, or when this guy actually decides to snatch some purty little blonde girl passing by, or when this guy realizes he can get away with a hostage situation, what then? What the f$Skin' then?

I've had enough. I think he has had, too. I think his escalating escapades over the past few weeks have been his way of saying, "Help me before I go too far." I don't know if I can, in good conscience, not spend every waking moment of my life at that school.

As for the interim co-principal? Besides going to the district and shouting at the top of my lungs, "DO SOMETHING," I'm open to any suggestions you have. But you might have to direct tweet me because I don't think they have wi-fi in the school parking lot. Which is, of course, where you'll find me.

Ohhhh, no, no. no!!! Seriously???? That person has no business being an interim anything, much less an actual administrator. I am heartsick.

I wish I knew of something to do besides raise a ruckus at the district level.

Craziness!! I worked in a school where we had a fair number of nutjobs who wandered in and EVERY one of them was dealt with as if they were all high priority.

My advice is to call the Superintendant and express your "concern for child safety and possible lawsuits against the district". Those messages always go to the top of the pile!

OMG! Contact the superintendent and school board immediately! Public property my ass!! I am so sorry this is going on. I hope you get a positive resolution soon. Hugs.

no no no no... no way..
We had a mom in our district who was worried about her special ed daughter.. so she parked outside at recess time to watch her child.. AND THEY MADE HER GO AWAY! they said she couldn't 'watch' the other peoples children. There is NO way that this is a legal right.. (NO Fucking way)
ABSOLUTELY go to the superintendents office... get MANY parents to go with you...
Kick some major ass Patois..YOU are SO right ... so don't stop till they take action!!

I would hazard a guess that a call to the police, and then a call to the superintendent's office explaining that you just had to call the police because the co-interim principal refused to do so might just take care of both your issues ;-)

Call the frakking cops, darlin'. Make a nuisance of yourself. Get the other parents to do the same thing. If there's a big enough stink, maybe they'll do something about it.


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
