The school board closed our school...

  1. The school board voted 5-1 to close our Montessori elementary school. We are heartbroken. Listening to the sobs of those children in the meeting last night was one of the worst things I've ever heard. I tried to prepare myself all along for this result but a tiny part of me held out hope that we could change their minds. I know it is not from lack of trying because we worked so hard to keep this amazing school open.

    I want to thank everyone here who offered their support. I really appreciate it.

    Today I am an emotional wreck. I am going to hunker down and do what I do best which is take care of kids. But it's very hard. People keep asking me how I am doing and I just burst into tears. Ugh.

    Results show 5 of the 6 school board members are ignorant; you can't fix stupid. I hope they sleep well.

    I am so very sorry this happened. I was really hoping to hear good news for you, your little one that goes there and the whole school.
    I hope you have a very uneventful day today in the office and a restful weekend to heal and recharge.
