But please understand we're following all proper procedures to make sure it is fully investigated show became school officials had police were also notified of the threat, but they didn't specify on which social media outlet. It was posted if they did receive a a threats which again goes to show we were in twenty nineteen how things are different. You know, is it is it some kid who's on a computer thinking he's having or she is having a little fun. Maybe they're trying to get out of tasks. They're mad at their parents. They're mad at their teachers or they did it on the doesn't matter. You take it seriously. Because you know, it's it's we we don't we don't want to be in the national headlines as being one of those places where something, you know, sad and tragic happens in and then you go back to well. You know, had police not ignored that social media threat thou there because this guy actually posted that he was going to do what he was going to do. So all of those things have to be taken seriously. But you know, you really have to hand it Tim to law enforcement for really knowing how to handle this because you know, you can't create a panic attack. You can't just stop what you're doing. Well, every time there's a threat we got close school that that gets us nowhere either. By the way, that's a great point. You mentioned about maybe getting out of test because we are. Are in a couple of Tennessee ready assessment windows, where there is a lot of standardized testing going on saying that may be true. I was just saying out loud that, you know, back in the back in the days when I was a kid. You know, we tried to get out of tips like us to believe when I was a kid. I was like man, you know, what if my mom can run over a nail in the driveway. Maybe I wouldn't be able to get Scott. She'd have a flat wouldn't be able to get school, and it never it. Never worked. It never happened. You know, it'd be like come home that afternoon. The nailed still be there the driveway like, well, why Well, why didn't didn't occur? you dump things like that? As a kid thinking, that's well or Oregon. Valen that good. Oh, well, let's see if you take a temperature in that she hand you and this is before the days kids, see back like when timid I were growing, we didn't have these fancy schmancy electronic thermometers. We had the old ones with mercury in. All right and the safe Marquis that right media. And you stuck it in your mouth. Well, the key to. The the key to it was when you when you when you put it up to the lamp to get your temperature to go up show. It is like don't hold it to the light too long because then it gets up in the thing breaks. Yeah. And then mom knows you're really trying to pull a fast one on her. So the key was to have it just on their long enough to where you could get it to go about one zero one. Oh my goodness. You're running a fever. You better. Stay home from school. I used to look I I've just been planning some bad ideas. I don't can you get away with that with electronic thermometers. I don't know we now use the one where us the temporal the. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. At a nurse. Do that to me at the doctor here in the last couple of weeks? I thought she was getting ready to hit me in the head. I like jerked back like what the heck are you doing Mr. Goodman? I'm just trying to take your temperature. Oh, I felt kinda dumb. Yeah. You can't really use the Homer. Yeah. You can't abuse. The fact that that there's a mercury thermometer anymore since that that is maybe the electric ones do the same. I don't I don't know hack it now that I'm grown. I have no need to you know, fake out. My mom just so I don't have to go to school. Exactly, exactly. Speaking of skipping school, and and school in general Shelby county school still looking for a permanent superintendent, and there is debate. Some numbers on the show becomes school board want to go with Joyce Ray. Who is the who is currently the the interim superintendent. However, there's been some gatherings around town of of concerned citizens concerned parents who want a national search a thorough search as they would say to have have a superintendent. Just cast that wide net to find it for the next leader of Shelby county schools. There's gonna be a little bit of tension there force because I know as mentioned some of the the county school board members say, hey, I think we've got the person right here in house. Let's save that money. But the folks on the outside there are some there. Some factions say, you know, what? Why don't we just cast that wide net to make sure.
