It ceases to amaze me at the lack of communication between school officials and parents. This morning while dropping of my child, parents are told we are no longer able to walk back to the classroom due to security reasons. We are however allowed in the lunchroom and commons area in the front of the building. We were supposed to be notified about this by note from school sent home on the last day before break. Judging by other parent's reactions, I was not the only person unawares.

No one up front was able to answer questions, certainly neither principal. How long will this last? No answer. What if I need to talk to the teacher about an immediate need in the morning? No answer. How will keeping me from walking to the classroom but allowing me in the lunchroom make the school safer? No answer.

It would be great if communication with parents was a priority for the schools.

I see some of your point, but if your child is old enough to go to school, they should be able to walkin with all the teachers watching like they do there. If you need a teacher to know something send a note or call the school. They are trying to protect our children and its sad that its gotta go this far, but we have crazy people out there. We need prayer and god back in school!

Major problem is lack of communication. On a regular basis parents are left out of the loop. For what it's worth, I'm calling the BOE to complain.

From a security standpoint, if you're allowing me into areas of the building where students congregate, you're not accomplishing much. This is just a knee jerk reaction that isn't accomplishing much functionally.
how about trying this

Sounds like you have some insecurity issues. Do you watch the news? I agree that parents should not be allowed to walk children to class. Each school has dropoff and pickup procedures in place to benefit the children, help with organization and decrease waiting time to pickup and dropoff. If you have so much time on your hands that you get yourself ready for the day and walk the child to class, when you complain to the BOE ask if you can volunteer to walk children to their class if they need help. All the schools in the county need more volunteers. Seems you are making this an issue when it is not a good idea for so many parents walking the halls. You are also adding stress to your child by insisting on walking to class with him or her. Pull up and drop the child off or let him or her ride the bus (that's the purpose of the bus---transporting children to school). Also, by letting children ride the bus it saves money and gas. Parents need to stop fighting the school system and let the children grow up!!!! Get over it.

You make no sense. Why don't you keep your security thoughts and gripes out of this forum. If you do volunteer then get with the program......it does accomplish something from a security standpoint. It keeps parents from stirring up drama in front of an elementary classroom and unnecessary people out of the halls. Why don't you speak one on one with your child's teacher or better yet send an email. Children don't need to see your confusion as to how you handle rules. If you're so involved, you would be helping the security situation instead of acting like a child that cannot follow school rules and procedures.

yes I did check her backpack and there wasn't a note in there and no one in her class got a note if Mr Wells is going to do all of this he should have made sure every teacher sent one home and maybe us parents that enjoy taking the time to get up and taking our little ones to school and walking them down to their pods and seeing what they have drawed or colored hanging up .that makes them feel good .

What's the big deal about a note. The change was made and you now know. What big difference would it have made in your entire day knowing it before you got to school or after you had already gotten there??? Are you mad because you had to get out of the car? There are big yellow vehicles that come by your house every morning called buses. Stick the kid on one and shut up.

Too much protection of a child will hinder them when they face the real world. That's the problem a lot of children have today. Never told NO and shielded from any type of disappointment early in life. The "Everybody" gets a Trophy has ruined a many of child. I bet you two were a sight to see in the hallway. I don't know which one needs to grow-up more, you or your child.
