  • The school has a wonderful program going for it. Just love it. But the communication between parent and the school is really bad. You can explain to them what is going on with your child and they will not believe you. They are quick to call the dcfs on any reason. Even if you go in and explain why you kid got hurt and is in a cast or with a bruise. But they dont believe the parent. They question the kids. And even when they do they call dcfs when there is no cause to.
