It was connected. The school sent out a letter to the parents about the club. So how exactly is it not connected. It was also held inside the school, and some after school program children attended. So yes, it is affiliated. My child is in 1st grade at the school, I recieved the same letter. She is not blood hungry. If you read her posts on facebook, all she wanted was the issue addressed by the superintendent and he told her she was over reacting. THAT is when she called the news and started blasting it. She even said the Terry Porter (principal) was sincere and apologetic. Its the higher ups that were in the wrong. And as a parent, if my child is at school they remain the responsibility of the school until they are picked up or dropped off from the bus.
They loan the school building out and my 1st grader never got the letter. My first grader also knows not to walk with out an adult they know

From what I have heard he has never done anything like this before. My niece and nephew go there and my sister also recived the letter. It never mentioned there would be no supervision. Regardless of all opinions he was still at the school. Still in custody of the school. Also there was a permission slip to sign and if there was to be no supervision it should have been stated in the permission slip.

So, does anyone know if there will be any changes made in regards to the supervision or security of this club? This lego club is one stupid idea btw. Who's idea was this anyway? Im glad I started this thread. I was interested in knowing how other people felt about this situation. Are any of you parents? Do any of you have a child that attends this facility? Im really not sure who is to blame for this but it is NOT the childs fault. Whoever is saying that- YOU ARE A COMPLETE MORON! Will this club continue to be held? I suggest that next time, the school pay someone to supervise the club meeting. Good luck parents!

Why should tax dollars provide supervision for a private club?

IT WASNT A SCHOOL FUNCTION!!! Should we also pay for someone to watch your kid while you're on vacation? No. Your child is YOUR responsibility no one else's. The parent should have been there period. If this was your child then you need to take responsibility for your kids actions.

The lego club in shut down. Also to the idiot that said she should take and pick up the child, thats what good parents do?! So all of us who have kids that ride the bus, does that mean we are bad parents?

What part not sponsored by the school
do you not understand? I'm not arguing with you because you don't have the intelligence to have a conversation.
How the hell is this not sponsored by the school. The school advertised it. The sent out letters, and they held it at the school. AND kids that were in the after school program were allowed to go. So if it was not a part of the school, then why were kids who are KNOWN TO BE THE SCHOOLS RESOPNSIBILTY there? If the school did not sponsor it then it should have not been solicited by the school or held at the school and the after school care kids should not have been able to go. The school wants responsibility off themselves.

I must agree with the school on this one. The fact that this happened really sucks. Thankfully, the kid is ok. But, things like this happen (hopefully not often), and they do what they can to prevent it. But, get over it. I can't recall hearing about this sort of thing happening often. Schools aren't perfect. Things happen. Sounds like it was a misfortunate accident, but get over it already. Sometimes in life ... things just happen... not thru intentional circumstances ... but, just because accidents happen. The kid is fine. Move on. Stop trying to blame somebody. It just happened. If you don't trust the school with the welfate of your child getting into the building before and after school, you have the choice to take them and pick them up. Better yet, remove them completely and homeschool. Parents are ultimately responsible for their child's education. You're going to be headed for some rough years ahead if you don't move on with the blame game. Or, maybe you're just a crappy parent, with a crappy kid. Maybe you should do the school favor, take your kid elsewhere. Sounds like ya'll wouldn't be missed. If you're willing to air your drama on topix, I'd be willing to bet your kids school years will be filled with drama also. Good luck with that.

The parents are not trying to get anyone in trouble. That's the misconception, she is a friend of mine. They just want to make sure this never ever happens again. They want an apology and a new standard for after school programs. Accidents do happen. Could have happened to anyone how does telling people what happened make anyone a bad parent exactly? And who are you too judge anyone? You don't know them or anyone commenting on here most likely

5-6 year olds eat boogers and glue, and are not many years removed from shitting in a diaper. The people here giving this age group so much credit obviously have some kind of agenda, or don't understand.

Ok here's my point of view after reading everyone's posts here. If your child played basketball or tee ball then chances are you received a letter from the school informing you about the league. Practice is almost always at the school and it never specifically says that there will not teachers present. This club was no different. No one would just leave their 6 yo alone at tee ball practice and assume that the school would take care of them. Getting a letter from the school about a extracurricular activity doesn't mean that you're free from responsibility. That being said, I don't know these people and I'm definitely not judging how they raise their child. A mistake was made by the school AND the parent. The kid's fine, thank god, so chalk this up as a learning experience for the child, the parents, and the school and move on.

There were teacher present at the first meeting. Also the after school teachers are directly in front of the door he walked out of..

I don't get what the parent's mistake was. The parent went to the first meeting and stated there were teachers there. She was comfortable with the level of supervision and let her child stay after school for the next meeting. The event was AT the school, directly AFTER school. Where's the loss of supervision of the school?

When I was 6-12 we went to girl scouts right after school. It was at a community center a block from the school and not everyone's parent showed up at the meeting, or to take the kid to the meeting. They showed up afterward and entrusted their child to other adults. I guess they were all neglectful and wrong to let their kid walk with other kids to a community center and have a meeting with another kid's parents as leaders.

No one's suing, asking for money or anything of the sort. They asked for the school to make parents more aware what was and was not a school sponsored event and for policies on supervision to be looked at. The lego club proved that they cannot provide supervision for its members who are minors, so it's been removed from the school. Problem solved as far as that club is concerned.

I heard last year a kid left school. But the parent didn't tell on the teacher because they didn't want her to get in trouble. This happen all the time in special education. It does not surprise me the mr. Smith said parents over reacting. How long do we have left of Mr. smith. Blame parents.
