I know, I know, again, I am a hideous person. How terrible that you even have to be stuck with me over at Oquenock. I'm so sorry to cause you misery, but I won't shut up about things I think are wrong, so if you don't feel like hearing about it, I suggest you don't check back here..........

Jessica, i do not even hae the words to describe how sensitive and caring you are being here. From the beginning of this issue, all you have done was show the normal concern for you daughter, your opinions, which you are entitled to. You made your preference known, as many parents have, the difference is that you chose to use your real identity, and now Oquenock doesn't have to move at all. Those of us who are being disrupted, we admit are being disrupted, and I am pretending to try to make the best of it because I am a puppet for the boe. I need to be condescending and rude to you because I am so regretful that I rested on my laurels and did nothing pro-active like you did, although I fell for the deception from one BOE trustee, and I accepted the ruse. Those doomsday predictions aren't predictions, numbers don't lie.
It's not so difficult to know better than them about making the wrong choices, since 2 schools are closing in one year, that's pretty drastic. The excuses are getting tiresome. Your Westbrook friends wish they took your lead and faced the reality the way you did.
Talk about hijacking someones name. Do you really think we are that dumb, although someone believed you

Yes not only am I hideous, horrific, and horrible - I mean, really, Hitler has nothing on me - now I am stupid as well!

I don't pay attention to the BS names people put on here. I post under my real name, unlike some of you, who will tomorrow smile to my face and act like my best friend. Pathetic. The difference is that I don't give a s--t about what you or anyone else thinks of me. I have enough friends that I care about that also care about me to not give a crap about what YOU think of me. I LAUGH my ass off at all of you people who have nothing better to do than hate me.

Why is it so hard for you to believe that there are actually people at Westbrook who feel this way? You Westbrook people should be MAD AS HELL! You are taking the brunt of all of this. And AGAIN, we aren't 6 million in the hole anymore, so does your school REALLY need to be closing? Especially when it is going to have to be reopened in about 2-3 years and your kids will AGAIN be screwed over and shuffled around.

Why aren't you MAD AS HELL at the way you have been treated - I have been told numerous times by numerous people that they are sorry - they thought they were safe because of what they were told by certain board members, and they WISH THEY WOULD HAVE FOUGHT THE WAY WE DID.

Now you can sit there and call me selfish and whatever you want, but the fact is that I wasted MY time fighting for ALL elementary school, and you thought I was just doing it because my kid went to school at Oquenock. Shame on you. I actually care about this ENTIRE town and all of the children in it, which is why I care so much about what they are doing to the elementary school students, as well as the High School students with the cutting of Boces.

Guess what? I could care less what you think. You want to sit there and pray to God that everything turns out ok, that is your choice, but the fact is (whoever actually posted that comment) NUMBERS DON'T LIE. It isn't a doomsday prediction...the class size has INCREASED in spite of what they PROMISED would never happen. It remains to be seen if all other things they promised would NEVER happen will happen.....

You know that this catastrophe of closing two schools in one year is unprecidented for West Islip. Wierd that any of you should try to make the best of it. You should be fired up because not only were your tax dollars abused beyond belief, your whole school district the way it is presently configured has to change dramatically to accomodate such an insult to the homestead base of of this town. If you keep walking around in denial, you won't have gone through the stages of grieving that NORMAL people do, it's an end, for some people who have given so much to this district for years and years like good little worker bees, it's a sad and upsetting state of affairs. That is the way normal people handle this kind of upheaval. It's a very real process, children just over the weekend found out that all this TALK in school is now out on paper and suddenly it's getting pretty real. People who live on cloud 9 never come to terms with things that are final. That is you, living in denial, pretending that Jessica is someone who can't deal. She knows somehow, maybe because of her elaborate schooling, that stuff like this just doesn't simply get swept under the rug, and it's an insult to anyone intellect, especially the innocent child to just dismiss this as no big deal, we'll cope, time to move on. Are you a zombie, are you a marionetee? Stay in denial, that's what I mean!

Jessica you have been right about many things and you have fought hard for what you believe in. But when you tell the Westbrook parents that their school will need to re- open in 2-3 years you are only half right. We will probably need to re-open one these ES, probably Westbrook in 1-2 years if the Kindergarten enrollment continues to increase. But we won't be able to for at least 5 years because most short term leases last for at least 5 years. And when we finally re-open Westbrook and maybe Kirdahy, it will cost millions to reneuvate them so that we can use them again. Hardly seems like sound financial planning for the district or our children?

I agree with you 100%. This catastrophe for our district but more important for our children. Their lives will be disrupted and turned inside out and upside down. And yes many are already feeling the pain.

Jessica you're about the only person with enough balls in this town to say that given all the new information Oquenock isn't going to have enough room.(it's really not new information it's just information the district was trying so desperately to keep under wraps) YOU GO GIRL! WORK IT SISTA!
Me thinks certain people are workin' a little Delphi Technique on ya. After all, we're not all taking about the enormous mess our school district is, we're not talking about budget numbers that don't add up, we're not talking about the 6 million dollar doomsday deficit that suddenly disappeared into thin air, we're not blogging to vote out Steve Gellar, hell we're not even talking about Mr. Simon quitting to be the new Superintendent of East Willison (is that public knowlege yet? oops, sorry) No, with all of the Delphi going on, they've changed the focus back to an oldie-but-goodie: Let's bash Jessica using aliases so we can take the spotlight off of our bad choices and fiscal ineptness. Don't fall for it Jess!

Doesn't bother me.....They can keep coming at me with their crap. I quite frankly could care less. Especially when none of them have the balls to say anything directly to me. They're going to shut up really quickly once September comes and the sh*t hits the fan.
