The principal of five years, is extremely career driven, she is overseeing four schools, possibly more now. Once she was in charge the appearance of the school changed, the playground was untidy, lots of waste strewn about.
Once COVID hit the principal was very heavy handed with the guidelines, parents were chased around the playground or denied access. Yet I arrived several times at the school and the principal wasn't wearing a mask but quickly donned one when she noticed people watching her. Teachers who were elderly and health compromised were forced to have unnecessary testing to be allowed on site.
I removed my children from the school as I believe that children need to see facial expressions, they need to interact. We were not given any sort of send off or a goodbye, pretty sad for an eight and a six year old, and I don't believe we would have had the same treatment if the previous principal had still been there.
My middle girl still has friends at WPS so I thought it would be nice for us to collect them after school one afternoon. My friend's cleared it with their children's teacher so I thought it would be fine, they knew us afterall. No, apparently we are no longer welcome. My middle girl was very distraught about this. Why should they make us feel so unwelcome ? Is it because we did not comply ?
