    hmmm. A fire truck was on the scene at 8:00 and the location is Overbrook Blvd. You may want to check your sources.

    nor were the kids at Concord dismissed early. That is very misleading for any parents who have kids there. Who wrote this?

  3. Ron says:

    Many of the parents chose to remove their children from school. The reporting on this situation was horrible, by all parties. The school, school district, emergency personnel, and media neglected to get information our to the public and what information that they did get out was incorrect. The School District official was both rude and arrogant in terms of helping parents to understand the situation, the principal did not take an active role in calming parents, and the fire department did nothing but alarm the parents. This situation was handled very poorly!!!
