As a mother with three twins that all go to high school east I was very concerned to hear that shen has gaven up on getting rid of the vapist in their school. One of my daughters even told me that are giving the vapist their own vape spot to hope it will make them lean off those computer cigarettes. Can you please tell us if these rumors are true or false for the well being of my sanity and most likely other concerned parents? Thank you very much.

Can we please fully open up the benches on the boys bathroom side during lunch periods because the gate seems unnecessary if they could just put more monitors there if that’s the problem because the benches on the other are less comfortable and also disrupt gym classes during ping pong. The gates also crowd students on both benches.

Isn’t the school required to utilize a certain number of snow days per year? Normally, we would have extra snow days in May, but don’t you think it would be more reasonable to have a few more in the winter, even though there is not much snow this year? I know from mine and other students’ experiences that December-February is a very stressful time and everyone is incredibly grateful for a snow day. In the past, Shen has given a snow day for a small amount of snow, and considering how slippery the roads are, wouldn’t it be wisest to cancel school? We have only used one snow day so far.
