Duval schools are a joke! My children have just started their second year in the school system, and I an truly sorry that they must attend such poor schools. It would really seem to me that most of the teachers I have had the misfortune

Yesterday, the 17th, my nieces were dropped off about 1:25 pm or sooner when on early release day school does not get out until 1:30. My nieces were missing for several scarey moments. since the Oceanway Middle school principal did not want to acknowledge there is a problem with dropoff times and the school board, threadcraft, also doesn't want to acknowledge there is a safety problem, I have to write this. I ask something be done to protect our children from an avoidable situation or accident. The principal responded with the 10 minute leeway paper that was sent out. My brother-in-law was at the bus stop at 1:30. They were nowhere in sight and he waited until when he thought the bus was to arrive. The girls had already walked home alone. I talked with Amy Lengrum at the school board and she said they would look into it. i told her about predators in the neighborhood and she said their everywhere. (sarcasm not necessary) When the mother of my neices spoke with Threadcraft, she said she can see both sides of the issue. The principal hanging up on the girls mother, Threadcraft's statement and Amy not wanting to remedy a potentially dangerous and deadly problem continues to cause me to lose FAITH in these people paid to protect our children. I hope they don't wait to do something after a child is hurt. Remedy- Send parents home a letter with a phone a courtesy call about the possibility of school releasing 5 minutes early. And the 10 minute window is longer than 10 minutes. If school released at 1:25, with a 10 minute ride time, my nieces would not have got there until at least 1:35. Even a 7 minute ride would put the kids there after 1:30. There were 2 parents waiting at the stop at 1:30 and the kids were already home. (What is wrong with this picture?)

On the moring of October 9, 12, 13 three differnt children who walk to school down Connie Jean Rd. have had a strange man in a vehicle trying to lure them into his vehicle. On the morning of October 13, at 8:00am a parent walking her child to school noticed this vehicle approaching a little girl all by herself being followed and talked by this man, he asked her to get in
the vehicle and he would take her to the store and get her some breakfast and give her a ride to school. I personally called and spoke with the principal Michelle Floyd-Hatcher and she expressed to me that she was aware of the situtation and had not followed up with campus security to see if they had followed up. I also asked her if the JSO had been contacted and she said she had NOT personally contacted them and could not confirm whether or not campus security had notified the local authorities and filed a report. I also asked why she did not send any notifications out to the parents regarding this SERIOUS issue. We were told it is not policy to send home notices of a possible sexual predator stalking our children on there way to school in the mornings!! I AM OUTRAGED!! I called the Zone 4 captain and he immediately dispatched 2 officers to meet with myself and the parent who witnessed him talking to the little girl this morning and approcahed his vehicle and he sped off. The officer assured us there would be extra officers in the area in the morings and afternoons to catch this man. My concern is that the principal armed with the information refused to notify parents of a possible child molester approaching our childern in the mornings on there way to scholl. Why did she not follow up with campus security to see if the JSO was contacted, in my investigation and speaking with several officers in the department this WAS NOT called in to the sheriffs department. This principal needs to get her priorities straight. I have contacted the school baord and First Coast News who will contact the JSO to confirm this and possibly put his vehicle and description of him on the news!! WE ALL NEED TO TAKE PART IN OUR COMMUNITY AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM GARBAGE LIKE THIS MAN. I have a 6 year old son who does not walk to school, but we live 2 blocks from where this occured. Please all parents, watch your children!!

Pros: EXCELLENT TEACHERS

Cons: PRINCIPAL HAS WRONG PRIORITIES

Several teachers at Southside Estates Elementary school are so lazy, they require the school bus to pull right up to their feet to unload and load. This causes the driver to have to #1 to put the bus in and out of gear and releasing the emergency brake twice or more. #2 continue to have to move the bus on school grounds with children on the sidewalk.
All of this because the teachers cannot walk these students literally 20 feet. I kid you not, 20 feet.
This would be amusing if not for the safety of the students. One teacher has told the drivers that she will not be available to take the ESE students into the school after 8:30 AM, and the aid would have to bring them in. Why? Is she that more important than doing her duties which includes meeting the students?
The Vice Principle walks around like she is lost. I would love to put this on America's Funniest Video but I don't think too many parents would be happy with how this school handles safety of students on a daily basis.

Pros: None so far

Cons: Lazy, rude and disorganized

All i heard when I moved to Arlington was "Terry Parker is the best school around". Well i have to tell you that if you are thinking that then you are very blind. The principal at the school has now made a rule that no book bags be allow in school. But they still want the kids to bring all that stuff they require to school. It appears he is afraid someone will being a gun to school. OK, instead of targeting the kids that do that stuff let make it hard on all the kids. Yes i mean PROFILE THE KIDS THAT DO THIS. Am i Bias, HELL YES. I have a kids that goes to school and does well and is punished for a few thugs that want trouble. So give them all the trouble they want. Then the friends of the thugs will turn them in if they want it to stop. In my opinion Terry Parker is the worst school for education leaders i have ever saw. If you want to set down an beat the point a little let me know, because that's not all that goes on there either.
