The reason she was not fired, is because her boss is related to her. Check it out. Tereasa Leonard has let so much trash go in that school it is ridiculous. She needs to go.

You people have no idea what you are talking about. If you want to know the true story go to the horses mouth. I have known this lady for many years and she wasnt even serving the food so how could she deny a child. BCE School just doesn't like people who stand up for the children, which is what this lady did. She did not approve of IA's taking milk and food that was intended for children who didnt have snack, so when she voiced this vicious lies were made up. Like I said, if you want the true story go to the right place, not the rumor mill! Go ask the employee's who still work there, they will tell you the truth, these are made up rumors, because she voiced against taking food from a child.
You are very sick defending this woman. Pleas get some help. Maybe you should not work there.

Problem with WCDE cafeterias is simple. Your problem is supervisor Cindy Tipton. She put her daughter in as manager at Westview with just one year experience, put her daughter in law at Sulphur Springs with 1 year experience, has her niece by marriage who has been problem for years transferred twice instead of firing her. Tipton is also related to a few others. This is where cover ups come in. Call your board members and let them know of Tipton.
Please tell the truth

You are so very correct. Cindy Tipton is Patton Gamble's sister. Patton Gamble's wife is also a secretary in the system. And if that is not bad enough they have nieces, brothers etc. working there. It is all sick. Their other sister has the rest of the family working in the cafeteria at Woodridge. How ridiculous!. The parents and the rest of the citizens of Washington Co. can stop this if they ban together.
Please tell the truth

Cindy Tipton should be fired or demoted. When you protect your niece for years who has no business being around children and is a menace, put your daughter as manager of cafeteria after one year on the job overlooking many more qualified, and the next year do the same for your newly hired daughter in law reeks of foul. Shame on school director for allowing this. This is why we have so many problems in system.
Washington Co. School Sytem is so very corrupt. Ron Dykes appears to be a very sick man. I would adventure to say a psychopath. Cindy Tipton will stay in the system forever, just like her brother Patton Gamble, who works at Westview. It is deplorable that so many of the Gamble clan work in the system. Until the parents ban together and demand changes the system will continue to be like this. No matter how nice a teacher may act, the bottom line is the system views the parents as the enemy. I am sure people will give testimonials that this statement is not true. So I will say it now when you are involved with the administrators you will find out what I said is very accurate.

None of the Gamble family will be fired. We pay taxes so that every member of the Gamble family can have a job. This will go on for many generations to come. It must be nice to have a business were your whole family can work at taxpayers expense. We all need to have our own public school system to employ all of our relatives.

If you saw first hand the lack of what this woman was doing, and obviously you were in her office daily if you knew what she was doing on her computer,why do you wait to gossip and lie on this site, why not do something then? I think you people must have sad and boring lives. Maybe you all should ask to speak to the former worker and her employess, especially Penny Fowler, who spread most of the trash you are spreading. For all parents of guardians of children at this school you should really concern yourself with the principal who lets everyone there tell her what to do. Your child only comes first if you work there. Stand up for the children and donate snacks like the last manager did, don't believe that ask the kindergarten teachers. God bless you all and I will pray that you quit bearing false witness.
I am always amazed when people insult another person for doing the same thing they are doing. You are reading the posts on this site so maybe you have a sad boring life. I know the ex-cafeteria manager and she is evil. She is cruel to the children and deserves to be fired. Penny Fowler and the ex-cafeteria manager were joined at the hip. Times do change. I do agree that Mrs. Leonard needs to develop a backbone instead of being so sneaky.

She just plays the dumb blond act.

The principal had to go back and get the milk situation as well as the biscuit situation taken care of. Guess she got tired of having to go and straighten things out. This was in a matter of a few days. Guess the employees that are there are more happy, since they have a manager that don't sit playing Zumba and other games all day.
This stuff has been going on at BCE for years. Teresa Leonard could have corrected things with this evil manager years ago. The principal needs to go too.

I am glad that changes have been made. After two teachers complained about how the cafeteria manager treated the special ed. students it is good to see that someone did something about this. The cafeteria manager is a witch. Now Tereasa Leonard needs to go.

The milk thing....100 percent truth. Taking food off of trays, in a not so nice way, 100 percent truth. Playing games, 100 percent truth. The biscuit deal, 100 percent truth. MANY of the people who saw these things did say something about it. It was never dealt with. As far as who spread this "trash", it was not Penny Fowler as you so christianly pointed out. It happened to be MANY people at the school, who finally got tired of the lovely ex cafeteria manager and her tyranny. She got caught in the act doing a not so nice thing by someone who does NOT work at the school, and who made a phone call to Mr. dykes. Say a prayer for yourself while you are at it......falsely accusing someone without all the facts is not a sin free act buttercup. You also bore false witness. You too, were on here "spreading the gossip". Tsk, Tsk.......judge not.

Thank goodness the horrible witch is leaving. I hope she has a miserable retirement. And I hope she has a lot of time to think about how she let children be abused in her school. She has played too many sick games.

Tereasa Leonard let the cafeteria manager abuse children for many years. It is good she is leaving. Someone needs to find out if Kim Curtis got to keep the same pay after she was demoted. I am sure she did since her boss is her relative.

Also for you folks who don't have a clue, the head count thing was tried years ago, it was a flop. Once the kids got to lunch they changed their minds. Also Most of the food is not commodity and the few items that are are purchased!
It's called making the kids stick with what they chose. It works in the JC schools. If someone with a brain did it in the Wash Co schools then a head count should work properly.

Yes it would but then these rednecks would be on here complaining because their little baby couldn't change their mind at linch time.

This just shows the type of people that come on here and try to make outragous claims. Ms. Leonard was by fair one of the best principals in WCDE. Under her tenure BCE excelled. Look at all the awards the school one. Not local but state awards.

Further more I am sure that the principal has no say in the cafeteria workers. That is a different group with another supervisor outside of the building.

Besides she has retired now. I hope she has a wonderful retirement.
