It has come to my attention that there was a school-wide vote involving the staff deciding not to include more than 3 parents per classroom in the End of the Year Party. Each year parents have attended this event to celebrate their children successfully completing another school year, and to help make the event possible with manning stations, helping to control the children, and bringing items.
With this new rule, parents will not be allowed in the building unless on the list of accepted parents selected by the faculty. While this decision may have been reached for personal reasons, safety reasons or just trying something new, NOTHING was said to the parents about this. To this day, with the party a week away, the school has failed to communicate this decision to the parents with a strong intent to turn them away at the door if they show up.
We respect the decisions of the school and respect their ability to make them. We do not, however, condone making such decisions without consulting the parents. Making a decision only a couple of weeks in advance without any warning is completely unacceptable. Some parents take off work for these parties and will lose possible income if they are not forewarned.
Please sign this petition if you disagree with the way the school has come to this decision and its neglect to inform us. Feel free to comment as well if you disagree with the decision that has been made!
