My child goes to this middle school and I am sure knows this girl. The school has to take every threat reported seriously for legal reasons. When we went to high school there were not specific laws and policies regarding this type of behavior as there are now. So, from a legal standpoint the district must act on it.
Mainly because nowadays everybody is in for a quick (dishonest, unearned) buck and would love to get that quick buck by suing the school for not taking it seriously...

I went to Sayville Jr High back in the 70s (it's called "Middle School" now)... I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times I probably told some other kid I was gonna kill them...

Problem today is everyone is being REACTIVE and worried about saving their own arses from a lawsuit instead of being REASONABLE and realizing a 12 year old texting "I'm gonna kill U" is NOT a legitimate threat...

This young lady seems troubled.

I hope the parents and school district gets this girl some help.

For What It's Worth

There's something happening here.What it is ain't exactly clear.There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware.I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down.

There's battle lines being drawn. Nobody's right if everybody's wrong. Young people speaking their minds, getting so much resistance from behind.
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.

What a field-day for the heat. A thousand people in the street, einging songs and carrying signs.
Mostly say, hooray for our side. It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down.

Paranoia strikes deep, into your life it will creep. It starts when you're always afraid.
You step out of line, then the man comes to take you away.

We better stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.
Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.
Stop, now, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.
Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down.

most of us feared getting in troulbe with our parents!
When I was younger I not only feared getting into trouble from my parents but from my friends parents as well. Back then a neighbor would call someones parents if they saw them creating trouble. Now...the parents get offended when someone comes to them to tell them thier kid did something wrong. This includes when family members tell them. You see it on the news all the time. Kid is charged with slashing someone or robbing them and the mother gets on camera and says what a sweet child they are. Parents need to get REAL and parent thier child, not make excuses for them. There are so many kids today not afraid of getting into trouble for thier actions so they do what they want. It worrries me what happens when these kids grow up and go to work.

I agree. Parents are so worried about being liked my their kids and their kids friends (my sister is a prime example of this) that they fail to parent. I was petrified of my parents growing up, and I certainly did not consider them my friend nor did I want them to be. If more kids were afraid of what would happen to them if they did something wrong (like death threats via text message) then there would be less of this nonsense.

Right on EMG. Parents need to stop trying to be thier childrens buddies. You had your chance to be a kid....now let them.

I know this girl. She is really not a bad seed, just troubled and wants to be popular in the worst way. Family is normal. She does waste to much time on boys. Her family should have realized from her dropping grades in school and letting her hang out all the time that she would become troubled. But---many times the kids are plain mean-and makes these kids go nuts-
I totally agree

That "child" is not entitled to have their identity protected. I work in the Middle School and sure would like to know who to keep my eye on. We should be the first line of defense and how can that happen if we dont even know who to look for!!!

Sayville is a community of stuck up wannabe socialites with champagne taste and beer pocketbooks. Their children can do no wrong. I know....I have seen how parents react if a teacher is forced to call home "What did you say to my child to make them do that???" In sayville, if you say you have no menoy they mean its because they haven't stopped at the ATM yet. Kids who live in suspension rooms are given cars by their parents. A young lady who was involved in a fatal accident last January that resulted in a death is driving around in a new Jeep Cherokee. What kind of human character do we expect is being created by these types of parents? In Sayville, it's all about what you have, not who you are. I have friends who have gorgeous homes and not one cent in their purses. And the pity is, they dont even know how ridiculous they are.

maybe they didn't feel popular enough in high school and are trying to re-live it through their kids...

You're probably right, but it is a serious problem. I see it all the time.

I bet all the lawyers are licking their chops over this and every other case like this one.

Yet another example of the beanie-boys taking advantage of other peoples' irrational fear so they can keep going to the bank. Guess that's how they get all that money.

You're an idiot if you allow your irrational fears to support this level of stupidity from our public servants.

So some kids might get killed. Kids are dying everyday. Are you whining about them? No of course not, their deaths don't affect you, so you just don't care. Typical.

Maybe the Arabs and Nazis have the right idea after all.

I have no idea what your reference to Arabs and Nazis was about. However, your reference to public servants is competely off base.

There are many parts of NCLB (No Child Left Behind) that the general public are not aware of. One of these is called "The uniform violent Incident Report". Schools are required by law to fill out this form for any type of incident that the federal government lists, regardless of the situation or mitigating circumstances. Included on this list are verbal and written threats of any kind. Schools must also report what action was taken to correct the problem.

This law has taken away a district's ability to look at mitigating circumstances and take appropriate action. Rather, in order to be in compliance with the law, districts must act immediately. Often overreaction is needed to be in compliance.

If you don't like this law - then tell Congress to revise NCLB. But don't get mad at the teachers and administrators who are only following the law as it is written.

Blah, Blah, Blah - It's not your fault. The civil servant choose to support a stupid law they share the balme.

The No Child Left Standing Law is a waste. It has all these kids focused on passing tests and not on learning. Say with the SAT, SAT--II, ACT, etc;

Try teaching children how to learn and think independently, then most if not all of these "issues" will disappear.

In the mean time, start shooting and other idiots who created this mess. They set it up for their own benefit not the benfit of the children.

There is no choice in following the law - if you don't the school loses funding. How can a school operate without funding. It is up to the people to let lawmakers know that NCLB is not what it was marketed as and they want it rescinded.

Trust me, teachers would prefer to be teaching important skills to kids. But lawmakers (who know nothing about education) are making this increasingly more difficult. 22

I think this goes beyond Sayville and to many other communities in the US. I've seen it all over. This includes having the money for cell phones, desginer clothes, etc and then barely able to pay the rent. I find the kids today do not really understand what it is like to earn the things they have. This is not everyone, but a large portion of them. I see it at the stores. The kids want a pair or $90 jeans and the parents are horrified of the price but would rather deal with how to come up with the money than with the temper tantrum thier kid would take if they did not get them. When I was a kid we had a limited number of pairs of pants, shirts, and shoes at the beginning of the school year. Next refresh of clothes was Christmas or birthdays. The exception was when I used my OWN money for something I really wanted. My parents were not poor but they certainly did not have disposable income to spend freely. I learned that if I wanted something, I had to go out and get it.
