    I understand and saw a video of yet another school fight at Elmore Stoutt High School yesterday. Principals, Education Department please do something NOW.....this is what we need to be marching about " VOILECNE " in our school system.
    If you need to remove the Principals to get this done so be it and please remember that this school is dishonoring Mr. Elmore Stoutt good name, I say no more.

    The rest of the world has moved on and is not closing schools if a pupil or pupils get Covid. We need to increase the vaccination rate so we can continue as well.

    These kids have been deprived of their education enough over the past 3 years. Do we not have vaccines and treatments? Get them back in school now.
