My Step-Daughter has attended this school since kindergarten. She did get an excellent teacher this year, but overall this school has a major bullying problem, especially against the blind and deaf program kids. I regularly see other kids kicking a blind girl's walking stick, and hear horrible stories of bullying from my child. They also have a peculiar no-noise policy in the lunch room. they have a traffic light in there, and when it turns red, they have to stop eating and be silent until it turns green again. When are the kids supposed to be able to be silly, noisy little human beings? Isn't that what healthy kids do? Make noise once in a while? Another problem with this school, is when I went to tell them about my child's food allergy, since I am only her step-parent, they would not allow me to. When there was a power outage this winter, they didn't cancel school, even though the power went out before school started, and when called they didn't say anything about the power, simply that there was still school. They served a cold lunch with luke-warm milk! They had no heat, and my daughter wore a dress that day, and was freezing, and they did nothing about it! I am appauled!
