Would you be mad that the parents weren't called sooner?
She told me that they evacuated the school at 8:25 (class starts at 8:15).
That they'd been outside since then, that there were police officers and fire men there but no one would tell them what was going on.
She said she'd already found her brother and wanted to know If I'd come get them.
I told her I'd be there in ten minutes.
I got there. The students were all in the parking lot, most if them huddled in groups becuase it was cold and their jackets were in the building. (it's been pretty cold and Rainy.)
I located the principal.
I told him my daughter had called me and asked what was going on.
It was a bomb threat.
At that point they hadnt called any parents or sent the kids home.
And I'm a little ticked by it.
Once there is a bomb threat, the school is evacuated and the students are not allowed back in the building that day. (Sometimes for 2-3 days.).
At 11:30 the principal started passing around a phone telling kids to call their parents and that they could use their phones if they had one. (School policy is that they can have their phones on them as long as they're off.)
As soon as they received the threat they knew the students Weren't going back in. So why did they have to stand outside from 8:25 until 11:30 in the cold and rainy weather before parents were called? Normally you get an automated thing as soon as they evacuate br />
(There won't be school Monday either. All they've said is that they did find a "suspicious object." But they haven't told anyone anything else.)
