carol thank u for apologizing but I don't think you realize that using the word "retard " or "retarded " IS the offensive word you used .. it's very hurtful to ppl who ARE mentally challenged and to parents of children who are ... it did use to be an acceptable medical term but ppl have turned it to an offensive one .. Google it and educate yourself about it , and I mean that in a kind way (-:  (Aug 8, 2014 | post #22)

I agree 100% especially with your comment I'm assuming is about this completely ignorant person using th email work "retard" , thank you for saying what you did , I had a brother who was mentally disabled and a child who is and ppl don't realize how hurtful that word is , and how ignorant they sound .. carol , shame on you ! You should know better .. Idk if you have children but I hope to God you are not teaching th hem that it's OK to use that word.. and if you are woman enough I hope that you can take the high road and apologize .. I don't know if you realize how hurtful that word can be .. I will pray for you th hat you open your eyes .. God blesd  (Aug 7, 2014 | post #20)

I don't agree with anyone taking advantage of the system but I find this to be a very ignorant comment and quite bigoted as well .. I know a lot more ppl in town that are Caucasian that take advantage of the system , don't work or work under the table and collect all kinds of welfare .. speaking as a half Puerto Rican mother I find this comment offensive , there are ppl who take advantage that are of all backgrounds .. the Hispanic community is a very hard working, family oriented group .. do all of them go about it the right way ? Of course not .. but you CAN NOT group them all together .. it's very ignorant to do so .  (Aug 7, 2014 | post #19)

it really is concerning, and very frustrating between my 2 kids they have been at netcong school dice my oldest was three so 10 years , I have had some kind of battle every year (she has many special needs and has a lot of medical issues) so they have never made it easy ALWAYS trying to cut financial corners , not to say that she hasn't had some wonder teachers and therapists ,.. it's the administration that has always been the issue and there is no continuity at that school .. I have never been one of those mom's that goes in screaming in carrying on like a crazy person but now in hindsight maybe I would have gotten more results that way which is really sad to me  (Aug 7, 2014 | post #18)

as far as goung to meetings about the school I have been to many , I voiced my concerns directly to the principal MANY times and gotten absolutely no action from him. . It always seems to be a pass the buck type of thing .. I do agree with you that if you want something done you should attend these meetings , unfortunately I don't think it would make much of a difference though )-:  (Aug 6, 2014 | post #13)

I couldn't agree more !!! Especially about down town by the quick check, I can't tell you how many times I have been approached by ppl selling drugs , I have lived here over ten years and when I tell ppl where I live they say "oh where the smelly quick check is, and ppl are always loitering" they reference our town as "trash" .. how sad is that !?! We are strongly considering moving , actually it's pretty much 100% because this town and schools are only getting worse instead of better )-:  (Aug 4, 2014 | post #7)

Bottom line most of these kids are too young to be unsupervised and their parents need to step up and be responsible .. they are not old enough to monitor themselves .. I would never let my child be there alone with out me , he's too young and there are too many bad things, accidents, bullying that happen .. Ifor I'm being honest idk what age I think it would be appropriate for a child to be on the playground alone, maybe it depends on the child but the kids I have witnessed are way to young and someone is going to get hurt. Most likely it's going to be a kid that is there not supervised on a day where either there is no adults/parents there or adults /parents that don't or won't get involved .. it's sad to me that nothing is being done to stop this situation .. but as a mom I just couldn't sleep at night if I sat idoly *sp* by and did nothing when a child was being hurt .. I spoke to a friend of mine who happens to be an attorney and she said something to the fact that what is going on is assault and it's negligence on the schools part ( those were not her exact words verbatim but that was the jist .. I just hope no child has to get seriously hurt b4 something is done whe there it's a parent or the school  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #12)

I definitely agree with you !! I guess the issue is the parents are no where to be found .. I am going to call the police department because I want to know what the actual laws are .. knowing what I see I could NEVER let my child ever be there alone EVER!  (Jun 10, 2014 | post #7)

I hear what you're saying , but I can't help but think something bad is going to happen and there isn't going to be a parent there to help.. when it comes down to it if all ppl are thinking/saying is " it's allowed, not against any law" how much is that going to matter when a child is seriously hurt. Are the parents of that child really going to care that it was "allowed ".. just today I saw about 5 or 6 kids piled on too of one child, another child punched in the face and left with a brused eye, one of the parents was there other wise that could have been much worse .. the principal said to me twice , if a kid/kids are complained about or not behaving they will be told they can't come back but I personally have told him of two incidents and nothing going has been done.. I'm just looking at this as a concerned parent, my child and other children can't have fun and play like they should be able to bc of other kids being aggressive bullies .. it just doesn't seem right or fair to me.. Maybe you're right , maybe I should call the police , I just feel like it's a parent/school issue, but that's just my opinion ]  (Jun 10, 2014 | post #5)
