    If a flu pandemic were to force MCCSC schools to close, what planning has MCCSC done about alternative methods of delivering educational services to students?

    Esther’s question prompts me to pose another question in this line. The CDC advocates frequent hand washing as the most important PREVENTIVE measure against flu. However, we parents know that the schools, especially the middle and high schools, do not allow enough time for the students to wash their hands before eating, nor are there hand-sanitizing stations in the cafeterias. Are the school systems planning to take any new actions to step up preventive measures against the outbreak of flu?

    Wonderlab is such a valuable resource for our local school kids. Will the local schools be able to take advantage of it for fieldtrips this year? I know Wonderlab also does teacher workshops, do you help teachers attend those trainings?

    I plan to write a fomal letter to the superintendent of the Spring Hill School District in Indianapolis to complain about it’s Principal, Subha Balachopal. A parent had a very aggressive and threatening incident with this principal when the parent came to the school to address the concerns of her child. Not only did the teacher dismiss the parent’s concern but Ms. Balachopal, during a meeting that she demanded the parent attend, was very beligerent and agressive and actually blocked the door to prevent the parent from leaving the room. This principal’s behavior is unthinkable and disturbing. It is a crime to detain someone against their will. This principal needs to be reprimanded.
