<quoted text>Just putting my 2 cents in. During emergencies such as this the office staff and teachers have a lot going on. Having to deal with unruly parents while looking after several hundred children is not an easy task. I commend ALL our school personel for the great job they do taking care of our children everyday!! Yes, I agree you should be able to get your child even if there is severe weather (if its an emergency) but remember there are several hundred other parents who allowed school personel to do there job and there children were safe the entire time. Good Job BCSS employees!!
From what I witnessed, no one was unruly until parents were told they could not get their children and then I still wouldn't classify them as unruly. Upset and frustrated yes, I don't believe a single parent raised their voice or even cussed. I agree there are limited staff and the number of parents and children ratio to staff is very high. But from what I seen and what I heard, parents arrived in numbers of 3 and 4 at a time. Which I believe is reasonable and not overwhelming. I also understand many staff where trying to have the best interest of the children in mind but my issue and I believe many others was the fact that I shouldn't have to argue with anyone at any school to pick up my children under any circumstance short of a lockdown called by law enforcement. And I certainly do not have to tolerate condescending and rude attitudes while I am picking my child up because of an emergency or for other parents sakes, the fear of their children's safety. I am thankful that responsible adults were able to discuss this with the school board without name calling and come to an understanding on the rights of a parent. As upsetting as this incident was, I hope the dialogue it created will bring a smoother situation should this scenario happen again.

The attitude seems to be "just let the school do its job" until the kids aren't learning, then the attitude changes to "parents just don't care enough." You can't have it both ways.

I am willing to bet a private school would not dare tell a parent he or she cannot take a child out, because they remember that they work for the people that pay the bills. Government agencies don't operate that way. Government treats citizens like cattle and tells them to sit down and do as they are told.

Heaven help us if we allow our children to blindly follow the "authorities" in these institutions. We are training. A bunch of obedient servants.

You are absolutely right - a local private school had parents coming to get their kids and the school had extra people in the office to locate kids and get them to the parents as quickly as possible.

I think it's funny how the self righteous parents go into a rage when they are told NO. LOL And I'm sure every one of you spoiled brat mothers are teaching your little demon children that NObody should ever tell them NO.
I commend all the schools for the responsibilities they had and how professional they acted to ensure the safety of the kids.
You spoiled brat mommy dearests need to get over yourself and realize sometimes you are going to be told No.
Professional? Really? It was the furthest from professional. I will never be ok with a principal telling me I cannot have MY children! If I wanted to withdrawal them, I damn well could at any time. You call me a spoiled brat and act like I am overreacting but if it was your child you would have a completely different story. Maybe you should grow a backbone and be a mom who thinks for themselves instead of thinking the state should tell you how to raise your children. But if people did that, then they couldn't reap the freebies from the government could they?

The people taking up for the school are probably the wonderful "dr" who is really just a principal at a elementary school or her little minions. Same type of people who believe Obamacare is a good thing and "assault weapons " are to blame instead of deranged individuals. God forbid anyone be responsible for themselves or theirs without the government telling them how.

Nothing will change as long as the principal and minions are still there. We have all heard tons of stories about how Taylorsville is so vile towards parents. There is a reason other teachers in Bartow tell you not to send your children to Taylorsville. But you are right, I do not have to put up with their attitudes for making decisions for my family!

Top elementary school in the county!!! Maybe there onto something, keep the parents that bitch and raise hell all the time pissed off so they won't hang out at the school all day. Thus allowing educators to educate. This program should be implemented at all schools. Sadly the others schools try to cater to the bitchers instead of putting them in there place.

The flaw in your theory is that Taylorsville thrives because of the parent involvement both in the school and out. The principal has nothing to do with the successful education, its all the children and teachers. Even the teachers there hate the principal. Get rid of her and you will still see Taylorsville on the top only difference is people will actually be happy.

I didn't comment on your previous post, but you did it again - your first "there" should be "they're" and your second "there" should be "their". Just seemed a little ironic.

Have you noticed that the two oldest principals in elementary have the two smallest schools? AND the two oldest principals with the most experience have had the FULL time AP?
Last year Pine Log this year Taylorsville.
I guess The lesser experienced principals are more capable of doing their job. OR do these two have something on our school officials?
Why would you give a high performing school a full time AP and you have a brand NEW administrator with a half time AP with more issues. Makes you question the leadership.

If it was over, why did you have to get your kids. Were they in danger at the school?

I wanted to get them for a few reasons. One of them being my children get very scared during tornados and I knew they would be even more scared sitting at a school instead of home as the sirens went off. Although the first set of warnings had expired there was potential for a second set to come in around 2 which would put many parents stuck in the endless circle lane waiting for school to release. I did not want to be sitting in the open field when another tornado came through. Another reason is there was a pre-k child that wandered out of the school 2 years ago and up the road. An adult driving by called the police and the school didn't even know the child was missing. So my confidence in the school's ability to have every child accounted for especially during storms is non existent.

Have no desire to work in the school system. It would just be nice to have a principal that wasn't on a power trip that was more concerned about people calling her "Dr."than the welfare of the children.

Thank you! Our society have become lazy freeloaders that will roll over and give up any rights as long as the government still gives them money. It's okay that the economy is down the drain and our grandchildren will pay the debt we've incurred because " we don't make as much as others, so they should take care us" mentality.

I've read most of the posts. It seems those opposed are government employees, or Obama sympathizers. I had a conversation with an assistant principal of one of our fine government indoctrination centers who called to yell me about my grandson who we are raising but couldn't tell me why he called! I was furious! He couldn't tell me what the boy had done but told me 3 times what great leadership we have in our superintendent! With the exception of law enforcement officer's and ems/fire government gets NOTHING right! And that too would be screwed but for the fine men and woman who serve.

Oh yes they do have the right. And drop the "they need to remember they work for us" crap. So does the police but they would still lock your bratty azz up.
If you don't want to turn your children over to the state as you call it, keep your kids at home and home school them. Those teachers teach your kids just like they do mine.
Go stomp your foot somewhere else. I'll be seeing your child in the blotter in a few years.
Ummm, no they don't have that right! I take my children to school to be educated not raised. I volunteer countless hours to the school during school hours and afterwards. I do not just drop my children off and pick them up at 2:30. If you see my children in the blotter, it will be because they are the arresting officer. And for the record, they would be out of funding and jobs if not for the excellent C.R.C.T. testing scores our smart children bring to that school. The office has NOTHING to do with that.
