Edison Local is just fucking with us now.

Pardon my language, but I don't care anymore. I'm so sick of rumors that I can't get spun up about them anymore, but this merry band of nincompoops is just fucking with us.

Report cards came out, and a great majority of kids have an extra eight days of absences. Eight days? Strike days!

For the record, I saved the initial letter that came home from the horse's ass superintendent that said as long as we sent something in writing to the principals, our kids would be excused. I even double checked the language of the letter today.

The eight days are counted as absences, albeit excused ones.

Am I getting upset? Not really, since I did go back and check.

But here's the latest poop to hit the streets (and I've lost count as to how many "proposals" I've heard thus far): the remaining middle school will close at the end of the 07-08 school year. The three elementary schools will become pre-K through sixth, with the high school housing grades 7-12.

Fine, I say, so long as there's adequate space, and there isn't.

And there are a lot of parents getting their panties in a knot over their seventh or eighth grade kid riding the bus with (horrors!) high school seniors!


Three words, folks: Get. Over. It.

In the district I graduated from, the middle and high school kids all rode together because said schools were right next to each other. That means I started riding the bus with (gasp!) seniors when I was in fifth grade! Guess what? No one beat the crap out of me, I wasn't assaulted...and by the time I was a freshman, my best friend was a senior and no one was going to mess with me. And I drove to school my junior and senior years; I never even looked at the bus by that time.

Gawd. Big picture, people.

Anyhoo, so yeah. And not only is another building going to close, but the merry band of jackasses also want to start a bowling team and a tennis team.

What the bloody hell?

They can't keep all the buildings open (that they gaspingly overheat), they're cutting teachers and programs left and right, but they can start two more goddamn sports teams? And is bowling even a sport?

And the board wants us to pass a levy with this shit floating around?

Honestly. Do you wonder why I'm sick of getting riled up about this? Until Helena Handbasket (the superintendent) passes gas down her final decision, I'm not getting spun up. My priority has got to be my kids, and until such time, they'll stay put.

And I'm not going to apologize for my language. I'm fed up, frustrated, and just plain tired of the bullshit.

Kiss my ass.

File a lawsuit. They will change quicker than a long tailed cat leaves a room full of rocking chairs.

Good idea, but the district is broke! They have no money! We're in the red! But let's go bowling!

And so on, and so on, and so on....
