  1. Also, Recently, A teacher gave my nine year inappropiate material to
    read. A chair was pulled off from under another her arm was injured.
    She received a sling at the hospital and she still has pain. They are
    so bullied at Buckatunna School. Also, my children were allowed pick
    up from someone who name was not on the list to pick them up. MORE
    MORE MORE Proof that this was brought up to the staff.
    October 1, 2010 back 180days and more
    Around 11:00 a.m., I received a call from MS L Revette. She stated
    that my child had stolen a wallet from another student. I said an
    accusation she said, no ,she did it. She confessed to it. I said I
    don’t believe she did it but, I am on my way.
    MS Patton was in MS Revette’s office as well. ( I had just spoken to
    them, separately, they were huddled together at the homecoming game
    last night.) Ms Revette started by saying what she accused Serena of.
    I defended her, by reminding MS Revette of the bullying and the non
    supervision and monitoring. I stated that my children do not have a
    fair advantage at that school. I repeated some history of Buckatunna
    and other statements. She passed a paper stating that Serena had five
    days suspension. She disagreed, MS Patton interrupted at times. Said
    she would get Serena an Emotional ruling. I repeated that it has been
    so many request made by me and nothing is being done. As, I was
    leaving out, MS Revette loudly laughed behind me. I turned to make
    sure it was her that mocked us and this situation.
    I asked Serena, what happened if she did it. She was so frightened and
    confused. She said nothing. She cried. I told her it was okay. I asked
    if she would rather discuss it at home, she nodded yes.
    I went over speaking to MS Everette and signing out my kids. She asked
    what was wrong, I explained of the accusation, MS Revette came
    barreling in that office saying that I can not involve MS Everette. I
    sated that, she asked what was going on and I told her.
    I left with my kids. We stopped at home. Just as I suspected, Serena
    gave her story and said she did not do it. She said she felt fear, she
    was scared when they found it in there.
    Talked to MS Leah, who was interested in some the other happenings as
    well. But, could not go over to the Superintendent office with me. I
    talked to Mr. Clay after waiting for quite some time. Mr. Clay had the
    copies in front of him. It was a long similar meeting of 2009. He
    laughed at me several times.
    I carried Serena to her 3:00 p.m. appointment to see Dr. Parker. Gave
    summary and she said, she can start seeing another therapist. Ms Tracy
    is no longer there. She had not missed an appointment under Doctor
    Parker’s care. Which to me is top therapy, coming from the doctor.
    I am feeling forced to home school.
