I am glad that the school officials realize the importance of keeping parents informed when things like this happen. Several years ago, on a Monday, I was getting out of my car at home when a news reporter got out of her van. She asked me if I had a child that goes to Bellamy. I did. She then asked me if I knew that a teacher and janitor had been arrested the previous Friday and that the deputies were at the school with the drug dogs. It was the first I had heard of it. There was never any information by the school or the school board sent out to let us know what was going on. We now live in Brunswick County and we get irritated with some of the phone calls that tell us about some concert or other such activity that we have no interest in, but as I think about it now, it is better to be over informed instead of uninformed.
