Thankful for deputy’s concern

Last Thursday, my daughter went with a group of theater students to Bishop for their One-Act Play competition. The group didn’t get back to Skidmore until just before midnight. I had to drive from Beeville to pick her up, so she sat in front of the junior high building, where the building is well lighted.

I stayed on the phone with her as I drove out there (I know – not the safest way to drive, but I didn’t like her sitting by herself so late), and as we were talking, she told me that a police officer had come into the junior high parking lot. He stopped in front of her and asked her what she was doing, then waited with her until I got there a couple minutes later.

So, to that nameless Bee County Sheriff’s Department officer, I want to say “thank you.” I felt better knowing that she was not alone while she waited. I know that it was only a few minutes of your time, but it means the world to know that you were there protecting my daughter.


A thankful parent,

Am I missing something, or was there not someone with the STISD there waiting with this child? If I was the parent of this child, I would be contacting the school and asking WHY there was no staff there with my child. With society today, and having HWY 181 right infront of the school, this child was put in grave danger by being left alone. Seems as if STISD needs to evaluate this situation and correct the problem.
