    well the school is OK. but the principal is ( wants his own way ) he gets up set if he doesn't . hopefully your child rides the bus because if not you will have to stand out side to pick them up which is in the pouring rain with lighting and holding an umbrella in front of 2 trees then you are soaked from feet to knees when you get back to your car oh ya then there is standing in the snow freezing your tail end off. most of the teachers are really great but there is like 2% that's not.
