I'm so distraught after 3 days on the phone & email with my son's principal and the district superintendent.
My son went to his first Homecoming dance Saturday night. He is attending a Magnet school here in Omaha. It's a magnet for a reason. They draw students from the suburbs with curriculum specialties. The only downside is the neighborhood they're in.
A fight broke out after the dance that night on school grounds, which ended with 20 people being arrested, tear gas and mace being used to disperse the crowd, a police helicopter hovering over the school and ~20 police officers trying to restore order.
I've shed more than a few tears since Saturday. What if someone had pulled a gun? I'm trying not to be dramatic, but my God! On the heels of Darrion Albert's beating death in Chicago, I am a bit frantic right now.
Nicholas and his girlfriend stayed close to a police car and then moved to the front steps when the teargas was fired. I am so grateful I'm not the one that picked them up because I would have been a sobbing mess trying to find them. The person who picked them up told me she had to park quite a distance away and walk to get on the property to find the kids.
After a talk with the principal, I learnt that there was another, more serious incident four weeks ago when a student brought to guns to school and has been charged with felony possession of a handgun among other things.
And I want to bring another child into the world??? I've barely survived this one.
