Cyberbully response ‘utterly inadequate’

Readers weigh in on harassment at EMCS

Re: Cyberbullying response raises concerns in Sooke (News, March 13)

Anyone want to bet me what would happen if I went to the principal’s office over and over, and uttered similar sentences? Or if I went to a teacher’s house and yelled the same at their young children? The responses from Edward Milne community school and Scott Stinson are utterly inadequate, to say the least.

What kind of parents raise children like this or allow them to do this sort of thing? Why has the school not informed these parents? And why are these monsters still in school? There are way too many unanswered questions. The school and Sooke school board have handled this extremely badly.
