Is anyone else fed up with elydale and the "management"?
What about the bus driver charlie daniels?
What does it take to have our children treated properly? Does their safety even matter anymore?

If it's the bus driver, you need to call the bus shop. That's what I had to do.

I did call the bus shop. Green Goat, for your info this bus driver dropped my 4 y/o with another child because he didn't know where he was supposed to go. Then not a month later he dropped him off to the babysitter and was supposed to bring him home. The babysitter wasn't home that day so my child was dropped off to an empty houses.

I didn't get anywhere with the bus shop. I didn't get anywhere with the superintendant either. These people don't seem to care about our children. Elydale sent a letter home with my child instead of calling me about her lunch bill. The letter said if I did not pay her luch bill by a certain date she couldn't eat lunch anymore. I had forgot to pay her lunch because of all the snow days. This was an oversight. I always pay her lunch bill.

Charlie Daniels doesn't even drive a bus from Elydale. As for the lunch bill, my wife says they send out a letter when the charges go over $5.00. About every two weeks they send another one until you pay. Her friend got one of the letters saying she had to pay before her kid could charge anymore. The woman owed almost a $100 bucks!!!!!!!! I know we forget a few bucks, but no way could anyone "forget" that much. They have to get their money someway. They didn't say the kid couldn't eat, they said no more charges could be added until the bill was paid. Anyway back to the orginal subject. The bus shop is responsible for the behavior of the drivers. They need to be reported if they are leaving kids alone.

I know Charlie doesn't drive a bus from Elydale. My child had to ride a bus to ewing to get on his bus and get to the babysitters. In the letter it said that if I didn't pay the lunch bill, which I did the same day, that I better be prepared to pack her lunch. The way I see it I pay taxes just like everyone else. Actually I pay more because I make more. This country needs to support the working people and stop catering to the people who choose not to work and live off the government. Not to mention every time I turn around they want us to donate cakes and cookies and all this other stuff for their little bake sales. Yeah it is possible to forget a lunch bill when you work and have a million other things on your mind. The employees of the school need to realize who pays their wages. Charlie has been reported several times to the Transportation Director.

I'm sick of paying all these taxes and then because I work for a living I have to pay for my child to eat a lunch that my taxes have already paid for once. Why is it that any child has to pay for lunch? Yeah it is possible to forget a lunch bill but the school needs to call the parents. They usually call me and I send a check to cover it. Seems to me they r once again wasting taxpayers money sending letters. Why can't the secretary just call the parents that's free to do?

Send them soewhere else if you think its so bad, Mine go and have for years and I think they are great people. Furthermore everyone gets those letters if your charges are $5. Big deal! Take it up about the bus deal a board meeting. You shoud be going anyway if your so unhappy. go to a PTO meeting and try to help better things. No you are one who just wants to bitch!

How do you know that I don't go? For the record my children will be going to private school next year. Face it where we live you can't better things for all the crooked people. If you are so naive then maybe you really are crazy.

i think that since children have to go to school. noone should have to pay for lunch. since they have to be there the county shuld pay for it. and i dont think its right that the pto has to buy the desks and tables and dvd players and tvs. that should be the school boards plae to cover that.

Rose Hill got a new sign because the principal fundraised the money for it and their basketball boosters helped pay for it. Any principal at any school could do the same.

You have to pay someone to close up, clean up......etc. With the game and practice schedule
being as busy as it is $250 is just a small amount.

If you have a problem with the school, go and talk to Mrs. Williams.........if you get no help there, follow the chain of command..........call Central Office..........but first of all give her a chance..........I've been mad an her before, but after I went and talked to her, I found out that all she cared about was my kid's well being..........she even had to threaten to call social services on my family.......give us a wake up..........she puts the kids first..........if you can do better, move your kid
oh please
