Nice. I think unfortunately most of the parents are too tired from a day at the office to do this.Read More Maybe ask the parents but replace teaching state mandated history lessons about gay people and farmworkers with such lessons like this one that are more meaningful in LIFE. That is a good start.

Just because he attended a Dublin high school doesn't mean the Superintendent needs to send out aRead More letter to the parents of every kid in the district.

Timothy - Really? Now, I have no problem with teachers discussing proper behavior on the internet.Read More It is a valuable lesson. However, teachers are not parents. If parents are "too tired" from the office, they better figure out how to squeeze a 15 minute conversation in between email sessions and take care of their kids, or else deal with the consequences of having delinquent children.

Prayers to her family and friends. Kudos to the 8th grade class for this touching display ofRead More support. It shows the best of what Dublin has to offer.

Beth my daughter said the same thing re another child involved (not sure if he knew what he wasRead More drinking). I heard this story from my daughter first. Then Patch. Nothing from the school very disappointing

Same story my daughter told me - sad that we have to disseminate information from 13 year oldRead More hearsay. There is a Coffee with the Principal 1/16 8:30 am. I wish I could be there but work precludes my attendance. I am still hoping for some communication, a week later, so that we can have accurate information in which to address the issue with our children.

Beth, Ms DeWitt here. I hope you and my favorite girl are doing well! I'm not writing as aRead More representative of WMS, I'm writing as a teacher and a mother. As a teacher, we have to remember that each and every student that enters our campus is a child. These children need guidance, not to have their business aired across the internet and in letters home to their classmates parents. If your daughter (and I know this would never happen) were a part of a similar situation, I know you as a parent, wouldn't want your information or information spread across the community. I think as a mom, this is an opportunity to talk to our kids about how to respond if they suspect someone is drinking or doing drugs, or even further, if someone may offer them to participate. This is an isolated incident, and sadly, should probably have never been reported on through the Patch. It doesn't really matter the specifics or who was involved, it's more likely than not, that information has already been dealt with behind closed doors, as it should be. Your children are safe and if you feel like you need more communication, share that with the school, not with other parents, or here on the patch. You made a great suggestion of the Principal's breakfast, if you can't attend, there is always email, phone calls, or even at morning drop off. Let's move forward and make the rest of this year a great year and pray for those students who happened to make a bad choice this time around.

Speaking from a parent's perspective, my son, a former PUSD student, was bullied from the time heRead More was in middle school and throughout HS. He was chased home, cyber-bullied, and punched in the chest in the HS locker room. The middle school did nothing, since the incidents took place after school and not on school property, and when my child reported the punching incident to his coach, the coach responded by telling him he needed to man-up. I'll never forget the day I discovered that bruise on his chest which he tried to conceal, because he knew if I reported it to the school he would suffer repercussions. If an adult threatens, stalks, chases down, and assaults another adult, it's a crime. If a student threatens, stalks, chases down, and assaults another student, they are "bullying". The question isn't "How Bad is the Bullying Problem in Tri-Valley High Schools?", it is, Why are bullies continued to be allowed to commit criminal acts, without swift action being taken, and arrest? Why do bullies get the protection that the children being bullied so deserve?

Ugh - I hate hearing about that. Why isn't bullying a criteria that our schools have to beRead More accountable for, like social studies, PE, math and science? I have two kids both in grade school, but I fear for them come middle school. I am urging our school district (Dublin) to get involved with a program like The Bully Project. I have reached our to our superintendent offering to help. Our districts are touted as being top notch in California, yet the kids are not protected. This has to change.
