Concerned Hamburger was emailed today regarding unusual illnesses reported by teachers, staff and most importantly students at Hamburg High School. As background information, the Hamburg High School has been undergoing structural changes. As you know, Hamburg taxpayer, because you voted in favor of the recent bond, the High School is getting new science laboratories (despite cutting 5 science teachers), and many other structural updates, like windows.
Hamburg taxpayer, you will be pleased to know that the structure may appear impressive; yet, the substance of your school district is unhealthy at the core.
Steve Achramovitch and HHS Principal Mr. Gallagher were both told about the reports of illness.
The response that was provided to teachers and staff is shocking.
Concerned was emailed by a teacher that has experienced such sickness that they went to see a doctor, and was put on an anti-migrain drug.
In an effort to sweep this issue under the district carpet, Mr. Achramovitch recommended that if teachers are feeling sick, they should go home.
YES, GO HOME DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY!
YES, TEACHERS SHOULD GO HOME IF THEY ARE SICK BECAUSE OF THE TOXICITY AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.
BUT, WHY ISN'T THE DISTRICT SEARCHING FOR THE CAUSE OF THESE CONCERNS?
So, what about Teachers worried about taking a sick day?
DO NOT WORRY.
IF YOU ARE A TEACHER AND GO HOME FROM SCHOOL SICK, YOU NEED NOT WORRY ABOUT LOSING A SICK DAY.
WELL, STEVE WILL SEND IN A REPLACEMENT WORKER.
THE ILLNESS THEY MAY ENCOUNTER DUE TO THE TAINTED SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT IS NOT THE CONCERN OF THE DISTRICT.
SO, WHAT ABOUT THE STUDENTS????
IF YOU ARE A PARENT OF A STUDENT IN HAMBURG, PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME.
HAMBURG HIGH SCHOOL IS NOT A SAFE ENVIRONMENT.
IF THE HIGH SCHOOL WERE SAFE, STEVE WOULD NOT HAVE TOLD THE TEACHERS TO GO HOME, AND NOT WORRY ABOUT A SICK DAY!
