This would probably have gotten me arrested. Consider this story and you might feel the same way.
A drooling moron who runs a high school in Minnesota decided that following fire alarm rules was more important than the physical well being of the students the rules were written to protect. Obviously unable to think for himself, Principal Dan Mesick who administers Como Park Senior High School in St. Paul could not understand that a student who happened to be swimming when the alarm went off must be given an opportunity to dry off and get dressed or stand inside the building until the extent of the danger was determined.
When the alarm went off, the schools officials forbade Kayona Hagen-Tietz, a fourteen year old girl, from retrieving her clothes and either standing in a safe location in the school or...

If the principals have a union, he’s got nothing to worry about.
(Like we really need any more reasons...)
I hope he name and inclination is SUE!
Of course, I tend to be a little hardcore about such things...
Someone should have called social services. If this isn’t child abuse, I don’t know what is.
Don't hesitate to let this POS know what you think of him.
You never know sometimes those swimming pools just go up in flames I tell you.....
“... A drooling moron who runs a high school in Minnesota...”
The above is not needed. ‘Tis sufficient to just say “principal”.
And if he/she/it is also a member of the union, that makes them a drooling ignorant corrupt no morals moron.
Can’t say I hae ever heard of a swimming pool catching fire either.
If it’s a real fire, she gets out of the school and some person with a head gives her a coat and puts her in a car.
If it’s a fire drill, reasonableness prevails, and she is allowed to get dry and dressed before going out.
But this is a public school system. No reasonable heads there!
It takes a LOT of gasoline.
Don't ask me how I know this...
If that were my kid - my lawsuit would already be filed and I would personally go after that Principal.
This is the child of a libtard, notice the hypenated last name. So she either has two “moms” or a limp wristed dad. The communists in Minnesota will never get it.
This sounds like a police report of child abuse should be filed as a prelude to a necessary lawsuit.
I remember one school having a fire drill in winter.
We were not allowed to grab our coats, we were shuffled outside into the snow.
Parents pitched a fit, the principal said, “If we had a real fire..”
Parents got even more outraged, he finally said, “oopsies.”
We had a different principal the next year.
Aside from the idiocy of what was done, where is chivalry in this entire matter? Remember how men used to throw down their coat or jacket over a puddle of water or mud so that a lady wouldn’t have to step into it? Shouldn’t there have been at least one adult who gave the wet and shivering child their own coat or jacket? Also the fact that this was the only person who got frostbite indicates that just maybe the other children and adults in the school were allowed to retrieve their jackets before stepping outside into the below freezing temps. So she was treated differently than the rest.
If someone said that to me I’d say “If there’s a real fire I’ll run outside naked.”
Just googled this guy and a few of his images seem to suggest he’s into the “bear” scene.
“If its a real fire, she gets out of the school and some person with a head gives her a coat and puts her in a car.”
I was just talking to a co-worker about this. His wife is a grade school teacher and claims if someone at this school had witnessed a partially clothed female being put in a car stuff would have really hit the fan.
Can you say AMBER ALERT!
Many teachers these days are only interested in protecting themselves, and their pensions. The wellbeing of the students is secondary.
And these are the people to whom we entrust our children. So lacking in mental abilities that they have to have a book to tell them how to think.
But a fire drill?
In event of a real fire, we wouldn’t have been standing not twenty feet from the building, we’d have been as far away as possible.
And we’d have grabbed our coats anyway.
“Don’t ask me how I know this... “
The glory of Policy Manuals is that no one has to be personally responsible - a perfect scheme for the intellectual and moral bankrupts that operate the Public school system.
A fire in an adjacent area could cause the roof to collapse.
The poor girl should have pointed her hand like a gun. Then she would have been promptly be taken from the other students outside and put into a warm room until the police arrived
One of the qualifications to be a school administrator must be that they have NO common sense and can’t think for themselves. They will blindly follow policy no matter what.
The seamless personal indemnification shell around public school employees must be shattered before any improvement can take place.
The involved principal and teachers in this case should have been arrested for criminal endangerment and child abuse.
