    My son attends this school because we live in the area and I am seriously thinking about moving him. I feel the staff their is not helpful at all they look at everyone that walks in as of we where delinquent people. No to long ago apparently they did not have my correct number to call me for an Emergency and to me that is unacceptable because I am a very dedicated parent and I know that I fill out all documents correctly ...I mean I do receive the calls for meetings I know my number must be right I have had it for more than 6 years and then they tell me they don't unbelievable! Ever since this school year started we dont even know what the principal looks like. My son was very happy to start a new chapter of his live but this school has made his 6th grade year a nightmare. My son has been suffering from bullying from several children and the counselors only tell me that my son must provide them with all the kids name....Thanks for not help us ever.

    As a parent I've seen little or no respect toward students(speaking for my children) or myself as a parent by teachers here at Sam Tasby Middle School.( In many topics) Would like to see better attitude and respect for the students and parents this school year 2013/2014.
