Way to go Mr. and Mrs. Dauber. You are making the lines. Hopefully Skelly will realize that he has been a poor leader when it comes to the social emotional health of our students, and either shape up or leave his seat for someone else who has what it takes to address the suicides without being afraid to say the S word. Cheers for you too. You sure got guts. I wish you had spoken up sooner, perhaps we could had saved the last children who died. At least, I now feel like they did not die in vane.
