will have plenty to talk about.

As you know, many parents and
teachers are angry over the recent
firing of Cave Spring's athletic
director Randy Meck.

They're also upset that the new
athletic fields at the school are still
not ready, in fact they're months
behind schedule.

There's also been plenty of criticism
towards Superintendent Linda Weber and
her management style.

Over the weekend, hundreds signed a
petition at Cave Spring calling for
Weber's immediate resignation.

On March 7th, an exterminator
sprayed Dudley Elementary with a
chemical known as malathion

The spraying occurred during
school hours -- which officials say
should NOT have happened.

About a week later, FOUR parents
called the school complaining their
children were suffering from flu-like
symptoms.

School officials don't believe
the symptoms are related to the
spraying, but they removed the children
from the affected areas AND conducted

air quality tests just to be safe.
