There is an elementary school afew blocks away from me. I walk by it all the time when taking my dd out.
The play yard is fenced in, and there were 2 teachers walking around monitering the children. But they were doing a terrible job.
There were afew small children on the outside of the fence, and some running around in the parking lot! Someone could easily just grab one and run. I was a few feet away from them. What if I was a predator? What if one of them ran onto the street and was hit by a car?
There was a 9 year old girl abducted walking home from school only 30 minutes from where I live. She was killed. [you may have heard of her, Victoria Stafford]
What should I do? Should I write a letter or email to the school board? Would you be uspet if you knew your child was off school grounds during recess?
It really scares me..
