One of our sources reported to us that one of the Farragut lower schools had 236 children out today. The heat was rare in some classrooms and the gym. Several classrooms had no heat. School staff called early this morning to report the heat issues. When the staff tried to call again downtown was not answering the phones.
At Farragut High School the early block class had 3 students, the first block had 2 students, the second block class had 8 students and the third block class had 6 students. The faculty were complaining that this could have been one of the days they don’t get paid for. The list of absences for Farragut High School is rumored to be 20 pages long.
McIntyre has done really well to have his first blunder after 7 months on the job. But this one has cost him some serious credibility.
