Grown ups should leave their play time at home & not under the table. Children are at school to learn but not that kind of thing.

I wonder if she was the lady with the male , that was not supervising the 4th grade kids during 4th grade recess time,when kids were playing in a busy driveway entrance, laying on the driveway entrance and skating behind moving cars.

How can one say this didn't compromise the children's safety. Your not doing your job if your too busy doing someone else during school hours.

This is a small town and everyone knows what happened. The school staff may not being able to talk about it, but the privacy laws do not apply to the rest of us, that have the right to free speech and we did not employee neither of them.

As we all can assume that there was some hanky panky going on between the two, it happens in every school, every year and are you really that shocked? I assume they got caught and resigned.

I wouldn't go so far to say it happens in every school, but even one is to many. If they wanted to do this on their own time,but at school. give me a break.I'm sure it could have waited a little while. Or didn't they know how to get away from their spouses. Ifeel sorry for their families.

I would just like to say that this is not something we should be talking about. We should be praying for the children caught in the middle and do something to help them put yourself in the children's shoes. There seams to be many and I mean many false rumors going around about this subject and unless you were there you don't know what happened. Unfortunatly it did happen, people make wrong and bad choices all the time. Who are we to judge. I don't condone what they did but We have been left with the situation and should work together as a community to make it a better place. We as a community should be more worried about why we have so many pregnant teenagers and why we have more and more children smoking and drinking. Let's find a topic worthy of discussing rather that ridiculing and speculating about them. Quit gossiping and instead be a bigger person and try to make a positive impact on our community.

Pregnant teens look what they are learning in school, not only in school but while they are out running around. If more people cared about what their children were doing maybe things would be better. This is not the 60's where you could actualy punish your children. So there fore I do not put the blame on the parents but on Society where it belongs.

People of maturity do not get escourted out of school building for having sex in them. These folks should have lawyered up. Havana teachers and administrators have been engaging in 'rock n' roll' at least off and on for 30 years. Nothing new in that. That was a standard way to get promoted a couple of decades ago.
Must be something more to it.

Just who are you to tell other people what they can do? This is a free country and if we want to come on here and discuss this issue, "to heck with you," we'll do what we want. If your are so against what is being said on here, then why do you even read the comments?
You have every right to your opinions, but we have the rights to ours, and you have no right to come on here and tell someone what to do.

In response to "Blast from Wichita", you are so right. It was none other than the good doctor "Jack" who set the stage for that. And he was the leader in the educational community!. Havana had respectable people in adminstrative positions not long ago but the corrupt influential folks couldn't stand it for fear they would be found out. Now they can't get them.

Not sure what you are saying - are you saying that some doctor named jack would tangle with a secretary and then promote that individual to a teaching position? That is pure fabrication, and does not sound like something that could happen. How did jack and the tanglee keep their jobs? Did they meat at the Sycamore?

Whom is this refried fired bus driver? Did "they" also drop him in the river? Bus barn seems like a drafty place, but alas, big jacks can do anything.

First of all, this is not the same Havana School District of the past. They have a bright and dedicated new superintendant who clearly is not going to accept any BS in his district! Don't you think it would have been easier for him to look the other way or disipline them behind closed doors? But did he? No! He kicked their pathetics asses out on the street where adults who can't keep in their pants around children belong! And all while knowing that would mean he would have to fill in as principal until a replacement is found. This IS the kind of district I want my grandchildren going to.

Still going on at that little school, Locker rooms, downstairs, Janitors cabin. slipping out the back and side doors. No one sees a thing, as they might get told on, I feel bad for the spouses of these men and women who are guilty...If I knew how to approach these people or their spouse's or girlfriends/boyfriends, I would tell them personally. My position here wont allow that and I don't want my family involved in this! Usually it comes with disbelief and tearing families apart, or a possible beating and or retaliation in school or out. I have a family too, but cheating at the school, Or just checking out for that afternoon or morning fling ? I bet your wife and or husband would be the last to know,(Shamelessly). They deserve the truth as would anyone going thru this. If anyone else knows these people families, let them know if you know them, send an anonymous letter/email/facebook msg. or whatever. This truly sickens me after seeing it for my 5 short years, and some walk around like a god or goddess as if no one knows. I am glad I am from a different city, This is terrible.
