Why would they even open school this week with such devastation to the county? I think they should keep it closed all week. A lot of people had to leave and go out of town to stay with others do to the power outages.

It is all business who cares if people lost everything? Who cares if people do not have electricity? Who cares it is only about 100 people according to his data? Who cares if the county leaders are saying to stay off the roads so that the powerlines and the falling trees can be removed? Who cares if it puts our kids in harms way? Who cares if our children that can't go to school have to make up the tons of class work they are going to have to miss because they are out of the county staying with family? Who cares? Not Armstrong. It is only 100 destroyed homes. Wake up man how many people does that impact? Who cares? You don't.

so did mr. armstomg actually physically state that lcs would be open wednesday? the way i understood the message was that he did say that he would be giving families one more day but i did not read the part where he said school would actually be in session? it could very well be that he is trying to do what is best for ALL the students who attend lcs with regard to opening schools but i do agree that the statement he made was EXTREMELY insensitive and without much thought to all who lost a little, a lot, everything and/or family. my heart goes out to everyone in ALL the states affected by these storms.
SAD

Disgusting

To access the message you all are wanting to read all you have to do is type in Lawrence County Kentucky schools and the website comes up. The message is entitled Superintendents message. After reading it again for the second time I am even more disgusted this time around. I think it is pretty disgusting that he did not share his condolences for the Lawrence County student and her grandmother. Instead he told us how surrounding counties shared their heartfelt wishes. I am afraid it does matter who you are in this county. God forbid it would have been a board members family or a potential board member I believe a lot more thought and compassion would have gone into his cold and callus message. I used to think he was a great politician. Now I just think he is an ineffective politician.

Folks Ė there will no school in Lawrence County on Tuesday, March 6th, 2012.
The most current data from Kentucky Power Company indicates 900+ families still without electricity. Plus, there are secondary county roads that are, at best, semi-navigable given the tree limbs that are still present in/on the roadway. A recent count indicated at least 40+ homes that were destroyed. It is estimated that the total number of homes classified as incapable of maintaining a safe, sound, and hospitable environment could well reach 100.

Accordingly, we need to give all of our ill-impacted families one more day to take care of their business relative to recovery.

Iíve also today (Monday) heard from district administrators in Boyd, Magoffin, Morgan, and Menifee Counties. They all shared their concern and best wishes for all of the families here in Lawrence County that were ill-impacted by Friday nightís storms. Likewise, they offered their condolences regarding the tragic death of Ms. Wood and her grandmother.

If you have any questions or concerns, please donít hesitate to contact me.

Mike Armstrong, Superintendent

Armstrong is a selfish and insensitive jerk. He doesn't care about all of the people in Louisa and around Louisa that lost their homes, he only cares about his pay check. He is a joke and he does not care about the students. He did not even say sorry for one of his students getting killed in the storm. RIP Samantha Wood.
I can't believe someone could be as heartless and insensitive as Armstrong. I think the school should be shut down for the rest of the week. So many people are still without homes and electricity, and it takes more than ONE freaking day to recover from losing your home, and your family members.
Armstrong only cares about himself, the jerk.
Please Pray for Family

Our prayers and deepest sympathy goes out to the Wood family. Please God bless Mrs. Wood who lost both her mother and daughter in the same day. And her father who is still in the hospital.

And may God bless all the families who have lost their homes. I will continue to pray for them as well.

I will even pray for Armstrong's to resign. Insensitive doesn't begin to decribe him. He starts out saying "Folks" like he is talking down to us. They walks around like they are above us, they talk like they are above us, they act like they are above us. One thing is for sure, they aren't one of us. They may have been born here, but they don't care about us, not now, not before, not tomorrow. I can't believe he put a picture of himself with that stupid Shi# eating grin on his face as he tells us he will give us one more day to get back to normal. Many families here will never return to normal. He is not normal.

Why don't they just go ahead and give the kids their spring break? That would give everyone 9 days to try and get something done. Then, if we need to miss more, so be it. At a time like this, noone is really concerned about school.
