After a morning of lockdown, the Silvestri middle school in New York City now has a new policy that allows students to attend classes without any adult supervision.
The lockdown is in response to an incident last month at the middle school where two students were apparently fighting, according to sources. The students were fighting on the school’s playground, which is where the two were suspended, and the school did not have any adults on-site to supervise the fight that escalated into a physical altercation.
The incident caused a minor traffic infraction, but it was enough to end the lockdown, which will last a week. Students are still allowed to go to the school’s cafeteria or bathroom if they want to eat or use the bathroom. As you can imagine, parents are upset that their kids should be able to be in an altercation in a public place without having to go to a nearby school and be supervised.
I don’t know what kind of weirdness will happen when this happens, but it sure as hell won’t be a nice one.
While school is being shut down, the city of Chicago is not. After the lockdown ended, I got a text from my mom saying that the police are now on their way. I’ll keep you posted.
It’s not clear if the police have just arrived or if they are already on their way. In any case, it would be nice if they did. The fact that they are there, and not already here, is bad news.
The police are on their way, and they will surely be here when school is reopened. They are here, now, and they will be here for some time. I can’t imagine the chaos that will be caused if cops are on their way right now, with no real knowledge of what’s going on. They probably won’t be here for long though. I mean, they probably just want to see if any of the Visionaries are here.
I get it, the police are here. We don’t want to see them take away the visionaries. We’ve got another day to do this.
But I doubt they are here for long. I bet they will show up and then they will start walking, walking, walking, walking until they arrive at the visionaries with no one to follow. Then they will start walking, walking, walking, walking some more. Then they will stop walking. Then they will start walking some more. Then they will stop walking some more. Then they will stop walking some more. Then they will start walking some more. Then they will stop walking some more.
There’s a lot of things we don’t want to do. But there’s a good reason why we don’t do it. Because we don’t want to have another day of silence, all of the time, no, we don’t want to be in fear of falling into fear of not being able to stop. We want to be happy with what we’ve done and not fear that we’ll end up in pain.
