Well, this might be a record. One of my parents was in the office yesterday causing quite a ruckus (the 4th day of school). Apparently she was upset because no less than 4 people had told her to sign in and get a visitor's pass, of course she ignored that because normally we run a driver's license but that system was down so they were just checking id's. She had decided that because the system we were using was not valid-she just wouldn't use that system. Oh yeah and apparently the 2nd day of school at dismissal I didn't make eye contact with her and her daughter could have been picked up by anybody. And I admit, dismissal is chaos - we have about 16 classes of K-2 (each at least 20 kids) all in the same area. The really sad thing is I practiced with the kids, went over the rules with the kids - where to line up, not to leave the line before they told me they were leaving - this parent was the one who crossed over to get her daughter before we even made it to the dismissal point. Yes, I should know where my kids are at all times, but that is made much more difficult when parents aren't following the rules. It's going to be an interesting year - I can feel it !
