Schools, parents need to keep tab on their kids

I’m writing to let you know how the kids drop their classes during school. Many months ago, two accidents happened in front of my house.

In the first one, three boys in a car crashed into the neighbor’s house at 11:30 a.m. The police came and found out they’d run away.

Police called the school office and they didn’t know they had dropped the classes. Police called the parents because the car was registered in the father’s name. When he came, he thought his son was at school.

In the second, a girl crashed in front of my house at 12:25 p.m. She did the same thing — dropped classes the school didn’t know, neither did the parents.

I was surprised. What’s the first thing the teacher is doing before her or his classes start? They are supposed to check her or his class first and report to the office.

The security, what are they doing? They should be checking who leaves from school property like, “Are you a student? Why you leave school now?” And don’t allow any student to leave before the school day is finished — let them sign at the office if they leave early.

Parents, don’t give your car to the kids when they don’t have a driver’s license — drop them at school or make them ride the bus.
