Any idea what really happened at HMS on Wednesday? They are saying it was a drill but I'm not convinced. Why would 10 plus police show up with their guns drawn and walking around inside the school? I feel it is time to tell what really happened.

My son told me there was a man spotted in a parked car outside the school for a long period of time. Unclear if that was part of the "drill" or not. That is just what he had heard. He didn't even know that the the whole thing was considered a drill until I read the email to him.

So apparently it wasn't a drill as the school claimed. Even my own child said they were scared and teachers had no idea what was going on and they usually do whenever they practice a drill. A truthful message to parents would have been better than the cover up we received. Glad to know that they did take precaution and handled the issue inside the school quickly.

I called both the school and school board after my daughter told me of the chaos that went on...the many police cars, the men in all black which i assume was swat gear, the teachers and kids confused and not sure of what to do.....and was bold faced lied to on all accords. Shame on this county. Always covering something up to make themselves look pretty. Dog and pony shows do not impress me when my child is involved. Now I am to trust the board? I think not. Wonder what else they cover up, lie about, or sweep under the carpet? Shame on them. I hope everyone let's it be known how they feel about this especially with the travesties that have taken place across the nation.

heritage middle school is an absolute joke with their "I choose". What they choose is to absolutely nothing about bullying. The new principle is a joke has no idea what she is doing. Can't wait until this year is over. This school is the worse school I have ever had any of my children in. Kids throw food, gang up, say horrible things...example..".I thought you were dead, you should have committed suicide...I would have." Nothing done. Joke....

Well, you totally just narrowed down my house search area. I wonder what the other Middle in town is like, anyone know if this mess is also rampant at Spring Station?

I have friends who have children in other middle schools in the area and have not heard of scenarios like the other parent described or what we have been dealing with. I'm not sure what the issue is but it seems rampant. Just had another parent discussing this same issue..same school last night. I do recommend staying out of Maury County schools though at all costs.

What are you guys talking about? I'm very concerned we have kids in HMS & HES but have not had this issue. The only thing we have experienced is the cliquishness that happens in middle and hs.

Wake up parents...I mean that kindly. Our kids are under sooo much stress at school. The teachers sit in the lunchroom, don't watch what is going on around them. Allow some volunteers to keep an eye out. My daughter has been getting bullied since she defended a child with special needs. Hard to explain how she is now the center because she tried to help another. These kids are sooo sneaky. Mine does not have Facebook, or twitter,,,,but there is always a few kids that can't wait to tell you what is being said about you. Certain teachers have there favorites whom are fake around the teachers, and allow them to rule the roost. Never been soooo disappointed in a school. EVERY thing is pushed under the carpet. Terrible. And don't depend on the teachers that do know what is going on, they don't want to make waves. Big joke. There are plenty of parents that feel the same.
