This is the second time in four months . I'm eager to hear of a plan to protect our children. In light of recent events across the Nation it is only in the best interest of our children to offer and implement a plan of safety for them while giving them a feeling of security..

This is kind of ironic. when you go to one of their football games they practically strip search you and god forbid if you bring in a candy bar or a bottle of water, but they can't keep a gun out of their school???

Jack britt is a god damn trainwreck...run by brainless, power thirsty, morons...principal ms garrison is too busy flirting with the admins & athletes to pick up a dummies guide on running a high school & actually learn how to do her job...administrator Mr Lindsey is a pathetic exuse for a man..walking around with his short mans Napoleon complex, harrassing male students to make himself feel better about his own shameful manhood...admin Mr fields is a typical jbhs staff member..only concerned with football..glorifying the athletes & ignoring the rest of us....I see garrison hugging & giggling with black football players almost every day during my measly 27 MINUTE LONG lunch...but I've never once seen her hug a student who didn't own a jbhs football Jersey...athletes get treated like royalty while the rest of us get pushed aside for them....I could go on and on and on about how sexist, racist, unfair & shittily run Jack Britt is...but ill just save til the next blog...cause voicing my opinion to the faculty would result in suspension...unless I played a sport ...
