It created an environment that was not suitable for children and gave them such stress that some didn't return this school year. Stop blaming "Sunshine" for sharing public information made public by the teacher. It's amazing how you people pounce on anyone who attempts to air the truth. Give it a rest. Stop trying to be self righteous and in denial about the unfortunate emotional state of affairs by former teachers. This year has had no outbursts and teachers are acting like professionals and not children who can't control their emotions.

Nice try. Posting your lies is not going to help Sunshine now. She should have never said what she said. You people just walk all over whom ever you want. Hopefully this time is the last.

Again....Really?

Gee....Have you ever asked yourself why after all the years that the teacher's had been there, what was different? Let's see....a new UNPROFESSIONAL lying principal, maybe?

Second week into school and you're already down one. Be patient, I'm sure she's already calling teachers into her office interrogating them. The VP and music teacher are already probably disappearing from class and asking parents to cover.

Are you for real? There is a huge difference sharing information with a community you know and trust and putting out on the world wide web by someone else. Do you even think before you write?

I'd rather have teacher's that care and show emotion when their student's are being harassed then a heartless person hiding behind God and lies.

How about the kids that went home last year and told their parents they were being questioned without their knowledge by the school psychologist, principal and VP. Hopefully, your kid won't be interrogated. I wouldn't sign any blanket release if I were you. When parents e-mailed the school to find out why their child was being questioned they were deferred and never given an answer. Is that professional?

The diocese has already proven they don't care. When parents signed a petition to have the ex-nun removed as principal, the arch diocese gave her the petition. She then went after families mercilessly on that petition. This led to families being told to leave since they didn't support her skewed views. This happened January of 2013.

The fact that she kicked out more than half her staff(who never felt harassed with the previous FIVE principals before her)is very telling on her part. Let's think about that. Do you think the long time staff just went crazy last year and went after the admin?

The admin at SB has been a revolving door...the one true constant was the staff. If you think the staff was at fault for the chaos then all I can say is WOW. What a powerful staff to have chased out five principals before the nun and convinced 200 plus kids and their families to leave.

The LA County Diocese did their homework and knew they legally could NOT fire the principal. The San Diego Diocese is going to pay out huge money for firing their teacher who was a VICTIM of Domestic Violence. Now the State if California is passing bill AB400 through Congress to protect VICTIMS of Domestic Viloence from being victimized over and over again, for example "losing your job, career, livelihood, etc" for being a VICTIM. You can verify the bill and there is video footage on several press conferences. check it out yourselves. That teacher is going to be very rich. All of the people who signed a petition for removal because the principal had a so called stalker should have done your homework and respected "VICTIMS RIGHTS". Instead, you are on your own island ignoring reality. As they say in TV court, "I rest my case"!

Do your homework:

Marcy's law also protects students and the right to a safe and sound environment in private and public schools. Why didn't you quote that portion of Marcy's law?

Domestic violence, you say?

I thought the stalker was not violent and was nice. Make up your minds!

If the principal is a victim of domestic violence and her attacker came on campus shouldn't she have done the right thing and told the community? She LIED and told the teachers to keep it a secret!! Do you see the problem??

Off Duty officers were willing to watch over the school and she didn't allow it because SHE said we didn't need it. Yet, she has her own bodyguards?

Camera's, bars and buzzers protecting the main building where the principal hides.

Daycare room open to the parking lot kids running around no protection. She acted on it after we brought it to her attention.
She was worried for her safety but not the kids.

The problem is her lack of concern for the kids. We signed a petition because she did not disclose the stalker coming on campus, she lied to all the parents and she continuously had total disregard for the community.

What else is she hiding? Every parent that had a meeting was told a different story and different lies.

Again, the children also have right's!

The archdiocese of Los Angeles is being sued, anyway!

The bottom line is, if a VICTIM of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE knows their ATTACKER was on school campus with innocent children then the victim should ask for a transfer away from children. There are plenty of jobs in the Archdiocese that don't require a person to be around children day in and day out.

You will NEVER know if this man comes back on campus or sends her packages. you will NEVER know if he violates his restraining order because she will keep it from you.

You walk around in Fantasy Land thinking that there are Good Stalkers. Look up your statistics and tell me how most stalking situations end.

By the way, here is a link to the article regarding the Teacher suing the San Diego Archdiocese. I find it interesting that a link wasn't provided by the person who brought up the subject. You will see that there are plenty of people who put the safety of children first. Especially, with all the crazy attacks on schools within the last few years. Why take a chance with our children.

The principal was under no obligation to tell ANYONE about her private situation. You people will never get it. If you are not a part of the people who left, feel free to do it now or get over it!!! It's not for you to say!!! It's her right!!!! Not yours! There are plenty of other schools where you can shelter your children. Leave our school alone.

Yup you are right. The principal was under no obligation to share her situation.

Once that man walked on campus it became everyone's problem!

Just because you could doesn't mean you should!!

Most people would've worried about the kids first and put their needs second for the safety of the community.

What character it would've shown if she warned the parents.

Well ok. How many times was the vice principle away from doing her job as a teacher. I guess some people accept univ of Phoenix as a place for higher Ed. Univ of Phoenix is weak but if that is the only institution that will accept a person I guess one must settle. I wonder how many parents of juniors and seniors in high school tell their children. I hope you get into that great online school. Univ of Phoenix. No standards at SB

Be careful. Your McDonald's pay check will not cover your legal fees. How's the credential coming along? Did your standards improve after you left St. Bruno? Once you start thinking critically you life might improve. The letter the Vice Principal sent out to current parents covers in detail her experience and academic background. Your false posts here just make you look more like an idiot.

Also, note how to spell principal. Check your punctuation. AND don't try to put someone down when you don't know who your dealing with or her qualifications.

You people are amazing. First it's the principal getting attacked daily and now it's the vice principal. Who are you? Are you a former teacher or parent? Or worse, are you a current parent? Why are you attacking someone who is highly skilled and educated with over 30 years of teaching experience? What standards are you referring to? The VP has her teaching credential unlike a few teachers who left St. Bruno. Stop attacking people who will only help your child learn. What schooling do you have? My guess is none by your harsh comments. If you are a current parent, I am praying for the school because the principal and VP might be subjected to further horrific conduct by a parent. If you are a former teacher or parent, move on already!!!Leave St. Bruno alone.

Right in the middle of you scolding someone about attacking the principal you attacked former teachers. Did you take your meds today? I agree that the VP has an impressive educational background. There are lot's of people in the world with impressive educational backgrounds that have caused harm to others. If teaching credentials are very important to you, then you might want to take a good look at your current teachers.

Here's a link to the website so that you can check old and new teacher's.

You're the one that keeps coming back for more. Why is that? Is this the only place you can find out what's going on at your school? Are you afraid you made the wrong decision? Really, why would you be on this blog if you thought we were all full of hot air. Something is compelling you.
You weren't there last year so you don't know what "our" school went through.
The 263 kids that left the school last year are liking their new schools.
What's difficult is missing the families of the 263 kids that left. The community that we once shared.
I'm sure you are glad that we all left so you could finally get your child in the school.
The fact is we loved our teachers and it hurts us to know that another one is out of a job. I know this is difficult for you to understand since you didn't get to know the community that once was.
Believe me, none of the families that left are hanging on to St. Bruno's and we don't want to be there. You can have it!!! It's a relationship that some families have had for as long as 40 years. People do go through a mourning process when they are separated from something or someone they've invested so much time, talent and treasure. Most importantly, we invested our hearts into the school, church and friendships.
We will be on this blog mourning the school that once was.
No one is forcing you to be on this blog.
<quoted text>
This post is so pitiful. The remaining parents are going create a petition in support of your mourning process. We will get signatures from all the elder bingo players, the neighbors, and anyone willing to sign something. We take it to the Archdiocese and to the Bishop. We do feel so sorry for you. After all, you are a victim to your own choices. I pray someone will come and save you from your despair. Sad, Sad, Sad..
