I read the posting of JLS mom of 2, above, removed. I wonder why? I will deeply appreciate the opportunity understand the rationale guiding the removal - that would spare the time the commenter is taking to post. Eileen 1 asked several times as well, in various situations. Seems to me that the only info that should not be allowed posted is personal info about individuals, especially kids.
I wonder if these are liability issues? Is it possible that the owner of this board is responsible as to the facts posted here? If so, is there a way to create an open board? I would, if I could.
And yes - it is off topic of the thread. sorry.
Thank you CAC parent for letting all who read these threads know about this event! Thank you for organizing!
