  • To whom it may concern,

    Please know that I am not rating the school, but instead the principal, based on the MESSAGE TO PARENTS column I read. I was "checking out" schools for my child when I stumbled upon Ron Ricks' rant. Based on this "message" I wouldn't send my child to Jefferson school in a million years. He clearly doesn't understand that he is a servant to the parents, not the other way around. He receives his $70,000 dollar a year pay from taxpaying citizens. His words do not have the tone of a caring person whatsoever. I could go on but, suffice it to say I think Ron Rick needs to hang up his set of keys. In closing, Thomas Jefferson is my favorite President and Patriot. He would be appalled!

    p.s. feel free to e-mail me and let me know if you were just having a bad day when you "penned" that column. I certainly am willing to give people a second chance.
