SHOCK!!! BLUE SPRINGS SCHOOL DISTRICT SENDS E-MAIL DEMANDING SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE FROM TEACHERS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS REOPEN CONCERNS!!!



This note has been circulating around social media but hasn't earned much local news coverage.

We've seen extensive FB & Twitter conversation but so far no MSM follow-up despite about a week of online conversation.

Last night a note sen to our blog community reached out in order to help spread the word . . .

"I am a teacher in the Blue Springs School District and our superintendent sent out quite the email today asking teachers in the district to stay quiet on social media about our opinions on a safe return. Many teachers are outraged. I have attached a photo of the email. I ask if you do choose to do a story on this, I stay anonymous because... my job. I know I speak on behalf of all teachers when I say we are desperate for our district to listen to our safety concerns. We have not been sent a survey or asked once by our district."

Check the letter, click this link or the image and screen-zoom to get a better look . . .



Here's the money line:

"Some of us have been on social media posting about our fears for returning to on-site, some issues of concern if we do that, and families and the community not understanding the risks. Please understand, as a board of education and district administration we are doing everything we can to make things as safe as possible for teaching on-site We are, however, beginning to see backlash from our community - parents in particular - regarding comments posted online and shared amongst individuals and groups. We have numerous requests this week from parents that their child not be placed in particular teachers' classrooms because of comments posted on social media. I am asking you to please be very careful about posting online regarding this coming school year. We are not trying to tread on your First Amendment rights but feel it is necessary to communicate with you that sometimes (comments on) social media can be perceived as negative even when that was not the intention . . ."

This is a good district but we've been having problems with leadership for years. Having parents who are active is both a blessing and a curse. But I'm glad word is finally getting out about this e-mail.

Probably the best idea to date. Most likely to save atleast one dipshit Teacher from stating pure ignorance. Looed at how many Teachers have been let go for their Social media stupidity.

You have freedom of speech but your job also has work rules that will get you fired for bringing discredit on your employer. He's reminding you of that so tread lightly. Let the union fight your battle. The bottom line is that you are not going to continue to sit at home and collect a check while other essential workers going to work for the same pay. Quit, someone is looking for a job.

Someone at the school test positive. School shuts down and keeps the childen in quarantine, not going home for 14 days. Good luck parents with the bs they will get taught during all that me time with a left wing liberal "educators".

This was entirely proper. They either show up and teach or get replaced by someone who will. This virus is not going away and the world must go on. The alternative is teachers found starved to death huddled in cardboard shelters.

Amen Kansas Scout. It's time for some old fashioned courage and backbone.

Like the great Dick Vermeil once said, "It's time to take off the diaper." Time to get back to work teachers, your five month summer is over.

90 percent of the Teachers I've been around were fucked up. Screwing each other, screwing students, drugs, booze and then toss in not knowing basics about the subject they teach. I 'd tread lightly before I stood up for any Teacher you haven't spend much time around their working "ethics". Each to their Own. They also spend the most time around your child(s) and your child has to make a career off their influence. Rather sad.

If the teachers don't like their job there is always KCMO. They are hiring social workers.

Same old crap said...

Get back to school. Get these kids in class. CDC shows the death rate of kids from covid 19 is .0000016. All the other countries have school opened. No case of covid 19. Get back to school now. Dont lessen to our dumbass governor Kelly.

If our current crop of teachers are too stupid, ignorant, and fearful to teach the kids then maybe this will be a good time to clean house and replace them.

What I found interesting is the revelation

MindfulMick said...

The Superintendent revealed Betsy DeVoss gave Rockhurst 5 million of Care Act funds for 800 students; 1.2 million to Blue Springs for 15,000 students. Now you Rockhurst alums, if there are any, that follow Catholic Social Gospel teachings instead of the Prosperity Gospel, I suggest you contact the Rockhurst administration with a demand that the school transfer its ill gotten gains to the Blue Springs School District.

Isn’t Blue Springs out of TKC’s jurisdiction? It’s so far away that even the UFO’s stopped going there.

Check out the FB accounts of some of the teachers.
See if they are social distancing.
Check out the Lees Summit teachers as well... see if their vacation pics and Scout activities include social distancing and mask use.
You decide if it’s safe to send your kids.

Do you think this is the only school district faced with these issues? And do you think teachers won't find a way to get this information out by other means? Maybe the head honchos in the BS school district should be more transparent and put all their cards on the table. This is just a very tough time all around.

Trump lied; 145,000 died. Administration abdicated responsibility. Now they control and hide the accurate death toll. White suburban MAGATs trying to cover it up as well. Get kids back to school so businesses can open. The Trump virus will run rampant through the kids and their families. You think the daily death toll is bad now, just wait until school’s reopen. Winning!

I'm Joe Biden and I'm running for the Blue Springs School Board.

Teachers need to go back to work or quit. They could have easily not signed contracts in July and went to work for door dash. People can go to Walmart, Lowe’s and Fast Food they can go back to work.

Wear your mask, wash your hands and stop with all the drama.

Jesus Botello is that all you do all day? What a fucking sorry life.

It’s not safe enough to hold the Republican National Convention yet it’s safe enough to reopen schools. Let that sink in MAGATS. Opening schools will be death traps for kids, teachers, and the families. Too bad Trump didn’t want to kill his MAGAT followers, though.

Lots of shady stuff goes on in BSSD. The bottom line is they control teachers with fear. No one hears the crazy stuff that goes on because of intimidation. I work there and want to go back. The district has already said don't spend any money or expect any money available for anything.

Wow obviously no issues me in your family had been affected. I applaud our intelligent Gov. of Ks. This took place in Mo. Sre your kids school age? Parents send their little darlings to school sick all the time. Also, we have already worked for our pay during the summer. Teachers make less than any other profession, most are there because they live the children. So stop with the bashing and if you don’t work, sign up for ad a sub teacher, sub nurse. Shortage of both.
