I see no one is responding to this latest information.

I believe we all knew it was done to get attention and they sure got that.

Now the important next step is to find the folks that caused all this problem and hand out the proper punishment.

I see the DPD is asking for help...Please allow me...the people in Danville are motivated by MONEY...offer a reward of about $5,000.00 cash with no questions asked and you will get the greedy buddies of the people that did the spray painting...MONEY, that's what makes Danville go around and around. The DPD knows how to flush out this matter. It is called contacting and talking to informants...they are motivated by good old money.
I hope the DPD get these crazies.

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

Thank you so much to the school administration and district employees who came out and were so visible during the week. Especially to the guards who were walking around the school; and even though they were not the youngest and most athletic, they did their jobs even when their bodies were sore and tired.

Thank you to the Danville Police. I know you were doing your jobs, but it made everyone more comfortable seeing you throughout the week.

As for yesterday…

I was one of the many parents who had the very difficult decision whether to send my children to school or to keep them home. Ultimately, after being reassured by school administration and police, we decided that 5/8/14 would be the safest day to send our children to school, especially to CWMS.

I was happy to see employees out on El Capitian waving hello, then turning into the parking lot to see such a united front of support by so many people. Students were greeted with fist bumps and big smiles. Parents were greeted with hellos and reassuring words. So…thank you to all who went out of their way to make a bad situation more comfortable.

TO THE CHILDREN who were so brave to go to school…good for you…you should be so proud of yourselves! You proved to everyone that you are not going to let some punk take away your right to get an education. You can teach others that we should not live in fear! We need to stand up and protect what is ours!

I also want to point out that several of the parents who made the hard decision to drop children off stayed in the CWMS area. Walking their dogs, exercising, driving by…You are great parents.

As for today and beyond…God bless our children!

One more thing…

The Town of Danville had many maintenance workers working at Osage Park and around CWMS yesterday. This may be a coincidence, but thank you.
