Worried

Our building is already in turmoil. We have three assemblies this week and staff morale is the lowest it has been in 20 years. I can't imagine how bad things will be next week!

If you haven't done so already, please document everything that has happened with this teacher.

Vendors

We used to have Books for Fun. Now all vendors are banned from our school. No explanation. I'm okay with it because I don't have extra money for those kinds of things.
