I can see why the preschooler got expelled. Learned the behavior from adults around him/her.

Why was there a horse trailer parked or stored on seventh street?

I am pretty sure there is a nice stable at the top of the hill.

Wow - parent of expelled child demonstrates rage and violence (even though it was just a gate). I am sure this parent felt the decision was unjust but that type of behavior warrants a call to child services as based on this brief report there seems to be a lot of strife in the child's life and today's CPA would most likely help pay for services for the entire family and conduct welfare checks and feedback on providing a better life for both the child and the parents. Child and family services is not what it used to be and they work hard to keep family together.

As a parent who has a child at that school who was in class each day with this child, all I can say is BRAVO Bridge Point. This child should have gone a long time ago.

EXACTLY. Children are a product of their environment. The apple didn't fall far from the tree!!
