does anyone else disagree with all the new rules? mostly by the principal! she made my daughter quit wearing her coat (with hood)to school. I can understand no hoodies and tryin to look gangter and all that. but it was a nice jacket. it does get cold, rainy, snow etc. here. also took away their recess. she's in 4th gr.there have been other changes too.

Rules are going to the extreme. have been that way the last few yrs. we should all take a stand. they criminalize the kids before they even do wrong. let them b kids and punish the bad ones

And the socialist car line is the worst. March kids out like at a concentration camp.

We teachers are just trying to do the best with the hand we've been dealt. Think about it, if we voice any concern or complaint we will make the list. Some of us don't want to move or be shuffled around by Huss and his minions just because we're outspoken. If been warned twice this year not to rock the boat. We need the parents to speak up!

Fear and confusion have become the new management style in this school system. The kids are the ones suffering the most.

I don't think any kid is "suffering. And right now you people got bigger problems:

The job market is still bleak for young people with only high school diplomas. Nearly half of high school graduates are still looking for full-time work, according to a new report by Rutgers University's John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.

The national survey interviewed 544 recent high school grads from 2006 to 2011 who are not in college. Researchers say their hardship may have long-term emotional and financial consequences.

New rules in today's public schools are like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic!

I hate the school drop off / pick up route.... It is clearly posted the you can not turn left when u leave the school parking lot. People evidently cannot read. I have complained to the principal, she said there would be a deputy posted to monitor traffic but he is on the highway in front of the school not where all the children are. I have seen several people nearly get run over... It is an absolute disaster!

This a warning, not from me, I'm just a parent. But it came to me from a sherriff deputy, if I follow the traffic laws and there's an accident I won't be at fault however, if I instead follow the schools traffic "wishes" and it causes an accident I will be ticketed.

Mr Buckelew must be doing a great job at BO just like he did at LRS. All I have seen is people bitching about the other schools and not that one. They are lucky to have him. We ALL miss him at LR!

Lol I know, I laugh at him too. One day he was parked near cut n curl and I wanted to take a lic of him "sleeping on the job" so I crept up real slow, he was still sleeping, but dont u know as soon as I lifted my phone he opened his eyes lookin around so I just pretended to be pulled over texting. Lol.

Who do the parnets speak with?How do the parnets get together and get Huss and the others out?Who is over Mr Huss?It seem's like noone has any ideal of what to do.
