Maybe the parents,(if there are) should be reminded that if the children are caught. they're resposable for the actions of the children. Maybe some family values can be reveiwed ?
Some of the actions of our children are reflected from learned additues.

"Teachers have to go through their own insurance to get their cars fixed. One teacher must pay 500-dollars out of her own pocket."

Like every business in Ohio pays for any damages in their employees parking lot.

Stop whining. Continue to vote for liberal judges that will give the poor little kids 20 days community service if even caught.

Rex- You're such an angry man. Maybe you should ask yourself why you're so bitter. Could it be that you've contributed to your own sorry lot in life?

Rex is right. This person wont be punished if they are caught. If it is a kid doing it nothing will be done. The kid will not even get a slap on thw rist. because you/we can't even punish our own children for fear of being arrest for abuse.

Doesn't La Grange have a police department ?? Obviously they are not doing their job ?? They are beginning to be as bad as Montville Township probably spending mor time at donut shops rather than patrol parking lots.

The mayor of Amity in the movie Jaws had it right. They should be caught and hung up by their buster browns.

If you are a Keystone parent who got the letter about one incident, that is just not true. There have been multiple cars damaged on several different days. And, as of Friday, no one had been caught.
The district needs to increase security, not just in the parking lot, but for entry into the school. Unfortunately,one person cannot monitor entry into 2 buildings. Our children need a more secure school.

Good post. This is a classic;

No ones been caught and we care for the kids. Our children need a more secure school so they don't get hurt.
Oh please, oh please, get more security for the innocent children. It's not about our cars. Do it for the kids.
We need a larger pay raise to be able to teach effectively. Do it for the kids.
We don't want proficiency testing for teachers. Do it for the kids.
We don't need a longer school year or longer hours. Do it for the kids.
Please vote for the levy. Do it for the kids.
One person can not monitor all the kids. The vandals may be planning a Columbine attack. We need more staff to increase security in the parking lot. Do it for the kids.
Ad nauseum...

Restitution by the kids? We wouldn't want them traumatized now would we? Just a childhood prank.

We HAVE the proper police coverage but it seems they are busier parking at the main intersection of town. I don't see them anywhere else except during school starting times to catch anyone going past the 20mph speed. Once in a while you see them cruising through Taylorwood or Union Station - Interesting. I don't see them getting 'donuts' nearby so what their other routes encompass is unknown to us all.
