    unfortunately my kindergartener has a very cold and impersonable teacher. The office staff gave me the wrong information on school lunches and my daughter did not get a drink for lunch. She asked to go to the bathroom in library and the librarian told her no even though she clearly couldn't hold it. She wet herself and was forced to sit in it all day. she was too ashamed to tell her teacher. How they didn't know is beyond me I could smell it when she walked in. The pricipal Mr. Kelly is very kind and does help when he can. The women in this school just seem to be very moody inconsistant lost and only comfortable around children. They also sent home a $35.00 coupon book to sell without warning. It could have been ruined on the bus.
