I was just told by a RLMS teacher that the school district is no longer going to have a school police officer assigned at the school. I guess neither the school superintendant or new principal feel there is a need for a police officer at the school or care for the safety of our kids. As a parent I want my kids kept safe while at school. Kids are suspended or expelled every year for drugs, weapons and threatening teachers. To my knowledge, there has always been a police officer assigned to the school. At the start of this school year, there will be none. I plan to quit my job and teach my kids at home. Thanks district 116. You really screwed up this time.

Well, if you're gonna quit your job anyway.....why don't you volunteer (unpaid) to be the school cop? Your kids get educated by trained professionals as well as all of the other kids who need an education. If your school really needs a cop (middle school....really?) then other parents must also know it. Band together and go to a school board meeting and see what you can accomplish. Complaining and pulling your kids does'nt fix anything. Getting involved and contributing does.

Why don't we ask the superintendent? They just got done spending tons of money making her office look pretty. I guess that is more important than the safety of our children huh?

Good idea. Superintendents attend board meetings. You can ask them there! It really puts them on the spot when they are asked such questions in a public setting.

You can't just volunteer to be a school cop. The school officer is a sworn police officer trained and cerified to work in a school. As for needing a police officer at the middle school level, every year kids are suspended and or expelled at RLMS for drugs, and having weapons in their posession. Kis have been expelled from IH grade school for weapons also. These are real problems that the school district doesn't want parents to know about. My kid witnessed a girl smash another girl in the head with a school issued padlock. That girl was arrested by the school officer. Superendent Collins makes over 175K a year and does have a huge budget for furnishing her office. I guess percs and office furniture trump school safety any day. School Board, here I come!

Maybe the taxpayers need to look into recalling the school board who hired Collins to begin with. She doesnt need a luxury office at our expence. Keep the cop-dump and the supt.

Well, if DisgustedParent is qualified to be an untrained, unpaid teacher, then why not be an untrained, unpaid cop? The answer here is not the misinterpretation of my sarcasm, but how to move forward to provide a safe learning environment for the children. The school board meeting is step one. Step two is to get the support of the parents who have children in that school. Step three is to make alot of noise about it in the local media. And here's a question: How many middle schools in the area have police officers? I'd think not many. Also did the school pull the cop or the Police department?

I grew up in that town, a long time ago. My family was one of the first in the Round Lake area. I looked in at this commentary, AND PROBLEM, and am shocked. I DO NOT KNOW YOUR SOLUTION, but , I know my Dad, long since passed on, we lived in Old Shorewood, would have clobbered me , had I got into that kind of trouble. I live a trouble free life , as an older adult, and I thank my Dad , for every time he DISCIPLINED me and " taught " me the right way... seems you need DADS , need to do this, I remember Round Lake men, they were the toughest ,[ and Illinois people ] fairest I can remember .

Thank you , and sorry to butt in

Yes, infested, like cockroaches. Dirty creatures that overbreed. And why should I leave, I was born in this country, unlike all the illegal alien cockroaches.

It REALLY is horrible that select people are so cruel...the idea that a person could refer to other human beings as cockroaches. Shame on you!

you're not in round lake .

how would you know .

round lake is infested with Mexicans !!!!!!!!!!

you can see all the graffiti ever ware now

we never had any graffiti when I was growing up in round lake !

if you see any graffiti on the fences or the side of houses that means there are Mexicans around .

they have extra money to spend on spray paint because we give them free food and medical care.

many times subsidize the housing also .

when you go into the stores all you hear is Spanish ,I feel like I'm in Mexico not the united states of America any longer .

we need to crack down on the illegal's and keep telling the government to deport as we find then .

we need the Arizona SB1070 law in Illinois ! to catch them at traffic stops !

in act laws to check the citizenship of all the students enrolling into our schools .

don't give up keep telling you senator , congressmen , even the Mexican A$$ kissing president in the White house .

stand up for yourself and your country!

if you don't know one will!
