I heard from several teacher friends that some kids from the Middle School was at the Kindergarten building after school where the bus dropped him off at and two started shooting at the kindergarten kids with a BB gun. A couple of kids were hit. Another M.S. kid had a Bowie knife and started swinging it around. My neighbor's kid confirmed it as he was at the bus stop and told me what happened.

If that isn't bad enough, the cops were called and none of the kids were taken into custody. The word at the school is that only the kid with the knife will get a 10 day out of school suspension, the other two may get 5 day suspensions.

What the Hell!!!!! If I had a kid at the Kindergarten, I would be pissed. They shot at and hit kids with BB's and all they get is suspension. They should be expelled and legal action should be taken. And why does the kid with the knife get more punishment than the other kids.

And if I was the parent of the kids that got hit with the BB gun, I would sue the district for not supervising the bus drop off and pick up area. It is my understanding that the kids were shooting for almost a minute before a teacher showed up.

Once again, I doubt the paper will say much. The school board is going to have an emergency meeting tonight or tomorrow to discuss what happened. I truly hope those punks get expelled and charges are brought up against them.

One more note, I haven't seen the Creston News Advertiser yet today, but I would be willing to bet that this incident is not even mentioned or it is confined to the police report.

This is why this town is so rife with rumors. I had heard about this last night at a restaurant and the story was it was one kid with a handgun. I decided to call a couple of my teacher friends and they told me what had happened. I also saw my neighbor this morning and I briefly asked him about it. His boy was there.

If the paper would just print the truth, whether it be the Kindergarten incident, the girl being pushed out in front of the car, etc. then there would be a lot less speculation and rumors. My wife just told me she heard a student was stabbed in the incident that happened at the kindergarten. I hope the paper at least prints a short article on it, but I doubt it. They want this town to appear as the perfect little paradise spot in Iowa.

I know nobody was stabbed, the kid just pulled out a knife. I never said anyone was actually stabbed.

And a clarification...I did not mean to imply it was in the ECC, it was outside of the ECC on Elm St. where the busses drop off and pick up kids.

And it was not even in the paper. I did find out that the three kids are getting 10 days out of school suspension. I still think they should have charges pressed against them. What are these kids thinking!!!

Last...To Afraid- What the heck are you talking about??? Say something constructive or don't say anything at all
just a question

i think they should have gotten "in-school" suspensions and had to set the the superintendent or principal and do their school work !!!! this way they just get 10 days vacation.

Why do the parents have to press charges??????????If it happened on school property. The school is responsible for all childrens saftey while on thier property...and where were the teachers, those in charge?????????? I would not hesitate to sue the the school for not doing it's job. Once a child is dropped off at the school, any school, it is the schools resposibility to keep those children SAFE.
I have seen no teachers outside at the elementary building, on ocassion, in the morning and thought that was odd, so not surprised.

I might add, those kids involved should not be allowed back in school. Something like this is a clear sign that those kids need help. Bringing weapons to school, is and should be grounds for removal from the school, not suspended, removed forever.
Lets not minmize what has happened here.
I hope and pray that the parents file charges against the kids and the school.

Well I am pretty darn sure that it DID NOT HAPPEN OUTSIDE the ECC
It happened outside the middle school. Unless there is more than one incident here getting mixed up. WHO says the school is doing nothing? Has it all been decided? I don't know but I don't think so. I think sometimes we have to take responsibility for ourselves and our children. If someone does something to my child I won't hesitate to press charges!! What about incidents like Columbine?? Is that the schools fault that the freaks went nuts and started killing people! Give me a break. If nobody stands up and tells their story what are they to do? NOW I would not stand by the school or ANY who would allow this behavior. They should be kicked out and gone no matter what!! There are many things that go on that I don't agree with..such as trouble kids still playing in sports and getting away with drugs and stealing!! That has been a problem here for years!!!

It happened outside of the Old Middle School, which is now the ECC. It was on Elm St. The kids were Middle School kids that take the bus from the Middle school and get dropped off at the ECC.

The school grounds are supposed to be a safe place. Teachers are supposed to be out monitoring the buses. Obviously, this did not happen. It seems you are implying that parents should watch their kids all of the time, but we can't. And we sure as Hell should have confidence that our schools can supervise them in the right way. Obviously, they can't.

Does anyone know what happened, where it happened, and what, if anything is the school going to do about it.
I ask because the local paper must not feel it worthy to report on it. But that does not surprise me. And as I read these posts most do not know, for sure, what did happen. There must be someone out there that does know the facts.
PLEASE POST.

Excuse me, the school is RESPONSIBLE for the safety of all the students. That is thier job when those students are on school grounds ......

Where were the teachers, where was the supervision..........
