This started with faculty, not being professional. Remember when that 1st grade teacher sent out an email to all the parents? That started this sticking mess. The teacher didn't want to work with the principal, but instead started hysteria in our community. There was NO reason to create fear in our community. She's been proven wrong by the judge. You can say that the judge doesn't know what he's doing, but my bet is on a judge, who deals with these issues all the time; NOT on people driven by fear, and have no critical thinking skills.


Your bet is on the judge? The judge that granted the first restraining order? The judge that granted renewing the restraining order? The judge that put him in jail for violating the restraining order? The judge that put the stalker on formal probation and added another victim to the restraining order? Actions speak louder then words!

How do you stand everyone whispering behind your back at school? I can't imagine that you don't know what people think of you...maybe if you quit being an idiot, you'll be able to redeem yourself (although, the damage is really already done). PS: You look like you've gained some weight lately...stress related???
No stress in my life. I'm up to 125lbs. What are you pushing the scales at?

Oh I would hardly call 5ft 2 inches 125 lbs security advisor manly. Maybe you should clean your eyes as well. Don't you have anything better to do with yourself. Get a life.
The principal NEVER said she was sorry.

Sounds like you have a secret? Who is it? Is it one of your secret friends you talk to in the dark or wheen you are lonely?
Are you continuing your Jr. High bullying mentality? Was the highlight of your life being the leader "popular" girls, so you could pick on others to make yourself feel better? Did you do this to get the attention of the bully football star?
You don't fit the name "Catholic Mother."
Never was a Bully nor was I Popular, but what I am today is the Voice of My Children!!! I can sleep at night knowing that I am a True Catholic with lots of Morals how about Ms. Interested? How many times do you change your name on the blogs putting down the parents & the Well Respected staff? Shame on You & Your ill speaking followers! Maybe you should try answering the questions you asked me and take a good look at Yourself!

Such glorious malarkey going on at St. Bruno. Methinks Pastor Reardon has a serious problem going on. Where is he again? Caspar Milqutoast walking around.

you are far from a true catholic. It is you who changes your name with your daughters and or sister. We see through your bs crap you bring on this forum. The admin has lost all respect. You don't have children here, you only get secondhand info. All you spew is hate and never come up with any facts. You are not a part of this school so just go away!

Keep in mind, the principal does not know who signed the petition. The families who were called into the office admitted signing the petition. The principal went after the families who spoke up at the meetings. There are families being called in that didn't sign but because they spoke up the principal is assuming they signed.
get your facts straight the school got a copy of the petition with the signatures.

Great post, lets stay away from unproductive name calling and finger pointing.

You are right! This stalker is mentally ill and unpredictable. A judge can only work the information he is provided. That's the role of the judge. However, the question is if this guy was no problem why does she continue to have a restraining order against him? That is the issue. The school has to be associated with this stalker while she continues to be on campus. I understand that this must be difficult for her but that's not what these families signed up for or ever imagined. The stalker has exhibited behaviors that indicate that he is unstable and obsessive. That's a fact and the principal has not disputed the details we have regarding his behaviors. That lack of acknowledgement on her part continues to be the issue. All these safety activities don't change the facts. All who support the principal, do you think it's normal to have a restraining order against an individual who is considered "harmless"? Do you think when our children are older they will be able to make sense of why a principal with a mentally ill individual following her around to their school was tolerated? How do you explain why families are removing their children after being there for years? That is what we need to ask ourselves. Please give some coherent, evidenced based responses that help other understand what makes this ok. The current information we have related to this stalker is troubling. Meanwhile, we need our kids to be getting the type of instruction to be ready for high school academically and spiritually. I am a product of a Catholic education all the way through and that is the purpose. That's the objective of this institution. It's to provide our children with the best education possible with the staff and community in concert. Thats what I felt was taking place before. All the recent public relations activities to keep this principal are taking away from that goal and sadly, instruction is not the focus. We need to stick to the issue that started this whole thing-the principal has a mentally ill individual who has been stalking her and has made contact with the school our children attend. This isn't about judging her it is about the fact that she has a stalker.

No parishioner would show such respect to the pastor of his church. If you really are a parishioner I think you should change churches since you not getting God words here. Shame on you!

According to the ex nun the stalker did not bother her while she updated Chorpus Christi security in Pacific Palisides. I think if she is concerned about her own safety should go to another coastal school. Apparently the stalker is not a beach guy but since he has family in Whittier and hacienda heights this shows that the ex nun continues to make poor decisions. Go west.

Pastors and Bishops make mistake and are very human. They need to show respect to receive respect. They need to stand up for what is right. Don't turn your head when little boys are being RAPED or when your administration is interrogating children then their parents. Wake up you are a sheep to shepherds that prey on children. PROTECT your children and make these people accountable

You rude, obnoxious parents call yourselves Christians? I find your words hurtful and extremely immature. Our job as parents is to help our children , not act like children ourselves. I am aware of the bullying going on at school and now I understand why...these kids are just acting like their parents. I am sickened by your behavior. It is you obnoxious parents that need to leave the school. Not the parents who genuinely care for the children and only want them to attend a school where they can learn and feel safe. Come on people...stop acting like children and be the role models they need us to be.

Wow! Blah blah blah??? Don't you realize that very attitude is why we are in the situation we are in today, not only at the school but the church also! Listen, THINK, and then respond. Your reacting does nothing for you or your cause; it only makes you look silly and childish!

You need an education! This sentence doesn't make any sense! So, you didn't make it past Jr. High? There are adult education classes in Whittier!
