I get this email today:
At approximately 7:00 this morning, our maintenance department was notified that heat was not circulating in parts of the building. They investigated the problem and determined that a valve was stuck preventing heat from circulating to the classrooms. Students were directed to keep their coats on as they entered the building at 7:35 a.m.
The problem was fixed at approximately 7:45 a.m. An inspection of classrooms at 8:10 a.m. showed that temperatures were between 68 – 72 degrees.
Whatever, I am not really concerned. Something stuck and the heating system didn't work for 15 min. I realize that teh message was sent out because of the kids going home saying "we had to keep our coats on, the heat wasn't working" and parents in a total outrage.
My problem is that it seems to be some of the "are you serious" that they share with us.
We got an email in the fall that a 2012 graduate committed suicide and that counsleor were avail for students. Well, hello that 8th graders were in the middle school, and aside from the small handful of 9th graders that may have rode the bus with the kid in 8th grade (not likely as he lived in the walk zone) was this necessary?
