    Default Facebook in an outrage over elememtary student's punishment for being tardy

    This family lives less than a mile from the school. The mom says there are multiple reasons for her son being tardy, and that he has received 6 lunchtime tardy detentions because of it. The Grandmother has posted this on her facebook and it has gone viral
    https://www.facebook.com/laura.hoover.71
    This is my grandson, Hunter. He's a little first grader. His momma's car sometimes doesn't like to start right up. Sometimes he's a couple minutes late to school. Yesterday, he was 1 minute late and this is what his momma discovered they do to punish him! They have done this to him 6 times for something that is out of this baby's control! They make a mockery of him in front of the other students! The principal is responsible for this. His mom found him there, crying, and took him home for the day. Anyone want to help me flood this lady principal with calls telling her how inappropriate this is?
    (541) 474-5770 Ms Fitzsimmons


    she has succeeded in getting the schools phones flooded to the point where parents can't get thru and it is hampering the schools ability to function as pointed out in comments by this other school parent

    My kids go to this school. I know for a fact that this school has grown and have lost their detention room due to lack of space and funding. Just this year did they start using the lunch room for detentions. My kids have had their fair share of detentions. They have both told me that the only reason the board comes out is when you have been told multiple times to stop interacting with other children while you are in lunch detention. I know the 4 plus tardy rule.. Yes, I think it's over kill..... But it is the rule and have known about it for 7 years! Because of it, I make sure to make arrangements if need be. I don't want my kids in detention for something that I could have prevented. It is the parents responsibility to get their children to school on time. Bring them early for free breakfast if you have to! This little boys parents live less than a mile away, and I would be happy to pick him up for school every day if that would help... If the parents would just speak up to the office staff and ask for help, they would gladly help come up with a solution to the problem! Any way, the school opens their doors at 7:30am there is no reason for that many tardies for someone who lives so close. Although, I think the school needs to find a more private area for detention... And I think this will happen! I don't agree with everyone calling the school and harassing them. I tried to call the school all morning to get my son's school work because he has been sick. I can't get through. Please everyone, be thoughtful of every single family that attends this school! Please realize that cussing out the front office staff is doing nothing! What it is doing is making it difficult for the office staff to call out to parents if their child is sick and needs to go home, or if there is an emergency and a child gets hurt, they can't call out nor can parents call in to let children know that their pick up routine has changed etc. Calling is making it an unsafe environment for all of our children who are attending! Please stop! Write a letter or an email... Start a petition.... Don't harass the school.

    so parents are in an outrage that this child is getting punished for something that is not his fault ( which is true, but according to the second parent, the divider is only because he did break a rule about not speaking during detention). There have been other posts that say that people are missing the point, that they should contact Ellen Degeneres and get her to donate a car to the woman!

    my feeling is that if it is such a problem for this woman to get her children to school, her family and friends would be more helpful if they banded together to get her car fixed or to help arrange carpool. But I'm pretty sure that if other parents had to wait for this woman to get her shit together and get her kids out the door and it resulted in THEIR kids getting detention, there would be an entirely different point of view


    video here shows how the child is segregated from the other students at lunch by sitting at a far off table with a card board divider

    Demeaning a child !!! Way to go. Schools are out of control. Maybe the teacher and principal should have their faces rubbed in dog shit !!!

    I think what this grandmother has done is far more dangerous than what the principal allegedly did.

    Putting a phone number out there for the internet lynch mob was a bad move.

    You don't do that stuff unless you have video or witnesses proving a line was crossed and have tried resolving like a normal person.

    yup, if that was my kids school i'd have a real problem with this grandmother and not so much an issue with the school. I think doing that to a kid in grade 1 is not the best way of handling the situation but i don't know the whole story. But if his parents had an issue, I'd say talking to the principal and not posting a photo online of the kid (and others) attending the school wasn't the best idea. Teaching kids (and apparently their idiot parents) to be on time is a skill that needs to be learned early. Apparently the solution of "waking up 10 minutes earlier" was far too complicated for these people. If the kid is pissed, he shouldn't be pissed at his school. He should be pissed at his parents.

    Meh. Get your kid to school on time and then you don't have to worry about it. I get that the mom has health issues and car troubles but then she goes on to say he's never more than a minute or two late. If that's the case, that is completely preventable.

    They don't have school buses in Oregon?

    They don't have neighbors?

    They don't have phones or e-mail in which the parents can schedule a meeting with the Principal and resolve the situation?

    Stupidity from all involved.
