My neice came home yesterday crying and said that the school was having a play day. She said that the cost to go play outside all day was ONE DOLLAR. Well she didnt have a dollar. The school refused to call me and let me bring her a dollar, and aparantly noone else at the school had a dollar she could borrow( bull crap!) Instead of playing with her friends outside she had to sit in the class by herself and write the rules of the school. She was being punished for not bringing her dollar. I got a phone call at 7:45 this morning asking if I could take her $5 to school so she could play today also. What did I do- I got out of bed and took the money! Had they called yesterday I would have done the same. It is rediculous that the school treats their students like that. Those kids are the reason they get a payday. They should have called me or they could have let her play and then when I went to pick her up told me that she owed a dollar. She was mistreated and punished over OND DOLLAR. I think they should appologize to her.

This does sound unfair but I don't think we've heard the complete story. I'd like the school's side of the story.

Riverside is a good school. If you would read the entire thing you see that it was all a mistake.

I think riverside is a good school but they are not very organized. I think most of the teachers go out of there way for the kids

Getting back to the original post, I want to set the record straight. I teach at Riverside and the event you were referring to was the Relay for Life. During the entire week the school was accepting donations from students and staff as well. For $1 they could purchase a paper cupcake which was displayed in the lobby with the donor's name. For $5 the students could go outside for 30 minutes on one afternoon for relay games. The students who did not donate were not penalized in any way. This was only a way of saying thanks to those who donated...and it was for a very good cause!
yes

I just hope none of you all that have a child that is getting ready to go to Kindergarten and is going to Riverside Elementary doesn't get Mrs. H for a teacher because she is a witch and a liar.
