After what went on at Rebecca's school yesterday, my gut told me to leave her home today and that's exactly what I did. I get to her school yesterday and there's a crowd of high school students beating on the doors. Rebecca's teacher was lining up the students to come out the door. He opened the door a little and asked the group of high schoolers to wait outside the school yard behind the gate. Well one of the high schoolers charged at the teacher and started pushing him and hitting him. The little ones got scared and ran back into the class crying. The teacher was able to get away and get back into the class andd he closed the door and held onto it and got the phone and called 911. Meanwhile another student called got the door open a few inches reached in and tried to pull the phone cord out of the receiver. The teacher pulled the door close on his arm and he let go. They threatened to beat the teacher up, threatened to kill him, and the one who pulled the phone cord threatened to come back with a glock (gun) and start shooting. When one of the security people of the school came by, I quickly got my child and ran outside and got her into the van and away from the school. My poor child was shaking, crying, and asking why those kids were beating up the teacher. The teacher is a substitute, and is male and about 64 years old. These 2 high school kids were over 6ft tall. My heart was breaking seeing those lil ones inside the door crying and scared. I wanted to grab all of them and run, but my first thought was to get my baby out of there and home safe. I told Jim last night what had happened and he agree'd with me. It was best to keep Rebecca home today. Monday Ms. FitzPatrick comes back to the class. She is in Hawaii for a vacation with her family. I will inform her what went on. I think it will be best now to keep the door locked and have the parents pick up the kids outside after the bell rings. If they want to pick up the child early then they should do so through the office, and have a note.
Jim says as soon as our tax return is filed and into our account at the bank, to look for an apartment at an apartment complex. Now we just don't care about having a yard. I'll take her to a playground or over to Emma's to play outside. We're waiting on the w-2 from unemployment, then Jim can do our taxes. That money cannot come soon enough for me.
On another note, Guess who called Jim again asking him to come back? Yep Diamond. Jim said they must be desparate for help. They asked if the boss could call him tonight after work. Jim said sure, whatever. I told Jim if they want you back, tell them 25.00 an hour, you want to work 2 saturdays a month so you get OT and you want immediate medical coverage for all of us. You want a company van to bring home, because I need our van to take Rebecca back and forth to school. And he wants all this in writing and signed by the head of the company, shop manager, and foreman. I doubt they'll hire him back under those conditions, but if they don't it's ok. Jim has a good job now.
Well, that is it for now. I have some housework to do, and 200 alerts to read. I am getting to them, I've read about 12 already this morning. So if I haven't commented please know I will be soon.
Have a great day everyone................
Love to you all................Cindy
