So we are heading into the last two weeks of school and my daughter who is in 6th grade came home yesterday and let us know the new rules for the last two weeks.
They are not allowed to take backpacks and they are not allowed to bring lunchboxes. All there work must be in one binder only and there lunch must be in clear bags. I asked why and she told me that the teachers told her that kids get more "rambunctious" at the end of the school year and this is what happens:
one boy at a middle school in our district got in trouble and was not allowed to come back to school. He tried coming back anyway and the teacher wouldn't let him. He came back and shot her. Another child came to school in another school in our district and shot/stabbed 3 other students. What the heck is happening these days???? I soooo want to homeschool! Plus, we use the word "rambunctious"???
THen the thought goes through my head that certain knives can be in pockets and a gun can be hidden in a binder so what exactly is this going to prevent?
This is crazy. We also have a guy in the city driving around and trying to pick up kids on their way home from school. They sent home a sketch of what the guy looks like today.
