We can end all the speculation now. I'm one of the mothers of one of the girls involved in the attack. Ms. Howard is from Hartford and her daughter is allowed to attend Windsor Locks schools. The rest of us LIVE here in Windsor Locks. Ms. Howards daughter has been instigating trouble with our daughters since the middle school. It was quiet last year because her daughter is one year behind. This year, she comes to the high school and it all starts again. Her daughter and her friends called our daughters the night before the incident indicating that they and Ms. Howard were going to be at the school to get them when they got there. I, for one, was not aware because my daughter didn't mention it, thinking whose mother would come to school and do something like that. Well, Ms. Howard was there and she instigated a fight. However, it is also my understanding that she was there to handle something else with the school involving her daughter the day before that had nothing to do with our daughters. She was asked to come to the school as a parent to handle that. Unfortunately, she did also approach our daughters and ask them to fight hers. When a fight started and she saw her daughter couldn't handle herself she jumped in and decided to put her hands on minors. This would have been avoided had she not approached any of them and encouraged them to fight. She has proven herself to show lack of self control, lack of better judgment and above all, what has she shown her own child with her actions? I think we all know now what the problem is. Now all of our daughters are suspended for protecting themselves, something the school did not do for them. No, I'm not laying down on this. It was wrong, plain and simple. As one of the mothers, who is also black, not that it even matters but for some reason it keeps coming up, I'm going to fight for her, not physically but to protect her from this nonsense. Whether Ms. Howard was white or black, I don't want her child to be allowed to attend here because they have acted in such a way that is not safe. I don't even know what Ms. Howard was thinking coming into the school and putting her hands on other people's kids. So everyone should stop and think about this incident for a minute and look at what has been posted. Its ridiculous with alot of speculation and unnecessary remarks being made. Lets not even bring race into this because its not even the issue. Stop and think about if an adult came to your child's school and put their hands on your child. How would you feel? Sure, I could go and do the same as she has done but then that would mean I'm no better than her. Its a poor example to set for our kids.

Busing kids from Hartford. Isnt that nice. I almost lived in W.L. again. I grew up there. I almost moved back. Thank god for private schools. Poor kids have to deal with the Hartford influence.

To "One of the Mothers":

I couldn't agree with you more. That woman had no right going into that school and starting that kind of mess !! You are absolutely right..race has nothing to do with this, the fact of the matter is it is just WRONG, outright WRONG, this woman has no right going into that school and picking fights with minors. My daughter was an innocent bystander, just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and almost got punched in the face, let me tell you, if that had happened and I got that phone call in work, I would have gotten a hold of that woman and let her know how I felt !! No one has the right to mess with anyones child !! It's to bad that your daughter had to be involved in that !

Are you from Windsor Locks? What gives you the right to say Windsor Locks is a "Trash Town"? I've lived there for 46 years and do not consider it a "Trash Town" ! I graduated from WLHS, have a very successful career, my children will be graduating from WLHS, and I have NEVER, EVER had to question the teaching ablity of one of their teachers in all their years of school there. Some mother from another town, has to go into the school, start crape, stick her nose in where it doesn't belong and all of a sudden Windsor Locks is this big horrible town. Bottom line is kids will take care of things between themselves and parents should just stay out of it, or if they are that concerned contact the school, they can't be coming into the school, disturbing the day, putting other kids and people at risk (mine was almost punched in the face). It just pisses me off...
Only the grove st/chestut area is trash. Of course thats about a mile radius.

Do the teachers at that school still let the students take the teachers car to get lunch at McDonalds?
I knew of one teacher there who showed a wrestlemania tape to his history class, cuzhe was hungover.
You must have really been put in your place by someone in Windsor Locks - I have noticed you trashing our town on other forums as well. Get over it idiot. Also, if you read the story, the students and mother involved were from HARTFORD - your neighbor - and BUSSED into Windsor Locks.
Does anyone know why we are busing in students? These people don't pay taxes here!
This is what will go on as long as they are bused in.

EXACTLY !! and I believe they get bussed into Windsor Locks because of Sheff vs. O'Neil, if the schools these kids were going to are not up to standards, then they have a right to go to a school where they can get a proper education. I'm not sure this is the best situation, in my opinion (and this is only my opinion) kids that grow up and live in the city (black, white, hispanic, whatever) have a totally different attitude about things than kids that grow up in small towns like Windsor Locks, I'm not saying it's a bad attitude, it's just different, I have alot of friends that grew up in Hartford and they would totally agree, I have a neighbor who teaches school in Hartford and he would totallly agree. Do the personalities always mesh well ? certainly not, and it's going to cause problems.

There have been four major incidents at WLHS so far this year. Each incident involved students bussed in from other towns (mainly Hartford). Why won't the school board open thier eyes and see the problem here?

If we are to be forced to accept students from other towns then if the individual student becomes a behavioral problem, get rid of them. Send them back to their own town to deal with them and send another student who wants to learn and isn't taking up space and starting trouble.

This rule shouldn't be just for this small town but for any that is forced to accept students from other towns. If the child can't behave then they lose the right to go to another school.
