School Answering Machine.

Postby Shazzam » Wed Nov 23, 2005 12:30 pm

This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School (California) staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine.

This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children's absenses and missing homework.

The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's failing grades changed to passing grades even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough school work to pass their classes.

This is the actual answering machine message from the school:

"Hello! You have reached the automated answering machine service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all your options before making a selection:

"To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1

"To make excuses for why your child did not do his work - Press 2.

"To complain about what we do - Press 3

"To swear at staff members - Press 4

"To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5

'If you want us to raise your child - Press 6


"If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone - Press 7

"To request another teacher for the third time this year - Press 8

"To complain about bus transportation - Press 9


"To complain about school lunches - Press 0

"If you realise this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behaviour, class work, homework, and that it's not the teachers' fault for your child's lack of effort: Hang up and have a nice day!"

If you can read this thank a teacher.

If you are reading it in English thank a veteran.
