I totally agree with Penny - I think Portland Public Schools should learn a valuable lesson here and should have been notifying elementary school parents, not just jr jigh and highschool parents when a student is absent. The automatic calls should go out within the hour the absence is noted by the teacher - not at noon like they're now proposing. Time is of the essence! They should also have cameras - hate to say it, but they should. Last night the news showed a burrito place being robbed and there were at least 2 security cameras filming the whole thing and yet our schools have none. Sad but true. I don't think we should have to walk our kids to their seats, but I do think schools need to step up their security policies - Portland is not a small town so we should not be maintaining a small town mentality anymore.
