A Must Attend Event at Hamburg High School

Don't miss the star studded cast of law enforcement professionals  and good health advocates at a must attend presentation on heroin and opioid addiction at Hamburg High School.   For years, many folks have written on this blog opining about the use of drugs among youngsters in schools (Hamburg District and others),  and its now reached "epidemic" proportions.  

All parents, students, teachers and concerned community members are urged to attend this event taking place Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. at Hamburg High School.   The adults must get their arms around this problem, after essentially ignoring it for years, and learn how to keep the children and young adults safe and sound during these trying times.

Overt drug and alcohol abuse has been a growing issue with Teens in the Hamburg community-- and it is only getting worse. The community needs to pull together to do something to halt this trend in kids partying their lives away because "yolo".
Students should be required to take substance abuse prevention classes each year-- which should have a speaking panel of those who have dealt with addiction or loss due to a loved one's addiction.
It would be great to see Hamburg take on some of these issues and recognize them as impediments to student success, not just sweep them under this rug. This one-off presentation from the department of health will not do enough.

It is great that this presentation is coming to Hamburg and I am sure the speakers will have great information for parents... but what about for the kids? There should be a speaker from local law enforcement, not a lawyer. There should be representatives from local addiction treatment groups, not the Erie County Mental Health Commissioner. There should be counselors talking about how and where kids can get help, not people who sit in the ivory tower down in Buffalo talking about statistics.
If this program is targeted towards getting kids help and improving the community, then it needs to engage the kids and focus on getting them the help they need.

This is for show only. No one in Hamburg actually believes that the schools and the village police take this seriously? They've known about it for years and years...and one person while under oath in court said, we don't prosecute students caught with drugs at Hamburg High School...we let the school deal with it. Its a public record. And what does HHS do..NOTHING. So when kids got caught with Oxycontin and God only knows what else they were taking, addictive pills, it was swept under the carpet. One teacher when she reported it was told she would face dismissal if she didn't write a statement out and report it to the village police. Thats how it goes...attack the messenger. And when another teacher reported drugs to Sharra- he turned around along with Moses and Cullen and wrote secret letters to the administrators discrediting the teacher. Then denied their was secret letters, Moses and Culen made their shit up, because they were no where near the conversations with Sharra- so after the involvement of several letters between lawyers the letters were flushed out. ( Of course most agree is was part of the document creations scheme DC style) Yes folks, there has been a drug problem for years...Jordan, Gallager, and the administration knows it. And what do they do NOTHING!!!! I say arrest these dirt bags for endangering the welfare of children. Dig into the student disciplinary records and see for yourself...drugs at the schools- runners at the school- and the kids show up every day. Jordan was told about a boy with 2,000.00 in cash in his pocket, and what happened?? NOTHING. NADA... Business as usual. Dig little deep--- ask a few more questions. How many Hamburg kids have died, how many are locked up in rehab? How many are still walking the streets like zombies? Get the village police and the administrators in a room and ask them these questions. It will shock you. Cmon Ed Piazza- you said you'd lead the charge, or do you need Danny's permission to go out? This is well over due and its time to call out the adults that allowed this to fester. Ask any kid at HHS and any staff member, if they aren't terrified to speak up they will tell you.

Ask Martinez about the drugs. He had all the confiscated stuff in his office and then they moved him. The reason they can't fire the bully is he will sing like a bird. Some of the guidance counselors should be investigated too for covering it up. Not all most of them are pretty good, but one or two are down right enablers. I head that the crazy one told the kids she knew had drugs that the cops were coming in with dogs. Nothing will ever happen.

Recently, I heard that Hamburg generously purchased chrome books for allow bets on the school board. Yet, students with disabilities who have the use of a word processor on their IEP (a legally binding document) aren't being provided with the technology they need. Where are your priorities Hamburg? Even kids who have "spell checker" on their IEP aren't being provided with that $20 assistive device.
Maybe we need to hire some "student advocates" to monitor every decision made by the Hamburg Board and administration.
Hamburg needs to do something to realign its priorities. The HCSD ship is sinking fast.

So, the district buys the board members Chrome Books, then asks teachers to present to the Board about all the great things they do with Chrome Books in their classrooms in an attempt to convince the Board to use the devices purchased for them.
I am sorry, but if the Board is this out of touch with technology and what it is used for in the classroom what business do they have being on an administrative body that makes decisions for schools?
So disapointing that the Hamburg Board incumbents ran unopposed for another term on the board. I thought we might get someone in there who had actually been in a high school classroom in the past twenty years...

12:49 what they spent with Hodgson Russ and the shit advice of Andrew Freedman and the other 30 plus lawyers raking in the money for the kids they could have bought every student in the district a computer- a chrome book- or what ever. I pure theft. Did you ever look at the legal bills on the Buffalo News webpage? Its astounding. The 30 plus lawyers at Hodgson Russ bill the district when they talk to each other- they will a many as 12 lawyers working on one case. I bet there weren't that many working on the Nuremberg Trials- its super easy for the bad advice lawyers to steal the money for the kids because the administration is CLUELESS- the BOARD must be as dumb as they all look- and the administration- under that dope Colleen Kaney has systematically denied special ed kids what they need to be successful. And look at the Dave Yoviene what an absolute disgrace of a man- a liar, cheat and over all creep. Millions have been spent and they just keep digging the ditch deeper- deeper and deeper. The state must investigate the Special Ed situation. There are 5 lawsuits from students and their parents against the district- do some research. An a guidance counselor and elementary ed teacher ( who had a parent on the school board) are being sued.... the lies are catching up with them. And look how bad the superintendent is- every teacher knows he is an arrogant- ignorant suit ( what a terrible mix). They don't care about kids- and Tom Flynn the M and T Bank teller should be put right in jail- Rikers Island.
