I NEVER got a "one call"from Central! And yes my number is on the list. Ironic, considering I have a child that goes there. Hmmm wonder if they really sent out a "one call"?
oh my

Is central academy a school for at risk kiddos? You'd think they would have more security measures in place there.

Yes it is and yes you would think so.
No not the entire school is for troubled children! There are children there that have emotional delays and so on that need extra attention or help in a classroom!

I didn't say troubled I said at risk, which also includes troubled kiddos. Not meant to offend at all I promise. Glad the kids r safe :-)

I am glad they are safe as well!! But I do believe there needs to be some changes made at CLC... Half the staff is more concerned with what's going on in their own lives or more worried about disciplining the special needs kids than teaching!!

my child attends because of anxiety and the high school was too much for her nerves to handle, she told me the child arrested but its not my place to say, she was actually in the room when they patted him down and found the gun...real scary situation!!

How do you know that about the teachers? Does your child go to Central?
Yes! And I have dealt with this school for too dang long and have seen way to much b/s and I'm sick of it but my hands are tied about him going back to regular school.

I'm actually surprised he made it in the school with it. I use to go there and I had a pack of cigarettes in my pocket, teacher saw a rectangle box sticking out of my pocket and I was searched. But this isn't surprising to me due to this new principal, he has ruined central. Mr. Rush (the old principle) worked very hard to make central the way it was and would have never let something like this happen. Then this new principal comes in and tramples all of his hard work in 1 year.

It's the way police work in Henderson. I'm sure he was picked up at school over this incident. It's much easier to pick someone up from school than to obtain a warrant to get them from home.
