Update

I heard back from the Superintendent of Schools here regarding the little "police boarding the bus" incident. While it is definitely NOT the answers I was looking for...he did write back. It only served to ignite more questions.

Dear Angela,

You are right about this whole issue. I did not know as much about this incident as you have shared, so I appreciate this information. I think this was a one-time incident that resulted from the Safe School policy where a tip led to this police action. I think the situation resulted in finding a pellet gun in a middle schooler’s possession. I am looking into this and totally agree that proper notification is necessary.

Thanks for giving me this information.

Now, from this letter, I gather he didn't even really know what was going on. He indicated that a MIDDLE SCHOOL student had a pellet gun, so WHY did they STOP and SEARCH my son's elementary bus? And there has STILL been no communication from the school OR the school district regarding this matter.

What to do....what to do.....

Hmmmmmm. Interesting. Here's what you do.....write or call your area newspaper and television stations ask for the reporter or editor of the local news desk. Explain to them what happened and I'll bet you any money that they'll follow up on this for you. Its definitely a newsworthy story that I think would get some attention. At least I don't have to fly out there now to pay him a visit....LOL.
