This is a post from Betsy's Mom about her visit to the school last Friday:
I spent last Friday, March 2nd, at the school all day. I went to the elementary
chapel right after school started. I waited until all the kids and staff had
left the music room where they hold chapel. I gathered my things and was just
kind of moving slow, when the door opened and 3 high school boys bolted into the
room and shut the door quickly. They went over to a window and were looking
out. I thought to myself "they are watching for a cute girl or waiting for the
music teacher or ??" Didn’t pay too much attention to them and headed out the
door. Denise, one of the teachers, and her 2nd grade class who were on the
other side of the campus started pointing past me and yelling “look out, look
“Look out for what?” I asked.
“THE MONKEY”, they answered!
I did not see a monkey, so started down the stairs (I was on the 2nd floor) and
as I walked onto the parking lot, they started pointing again and there he was…
the monkey. He was just two classroom doors down from where I was at the music
room. And fortunately he was heading away from me and down the open hallway
when I was up there!!!!
They can be quite mean and can bite! So I was glad he was going the other way
from me as I was so unaware of the pending “danger”.
The monkey catcher (yes, the monkey catcher) was called. He set a trap with
bananas for bait. I guess this little guy has harassed the school before. So
he will be caught and sent to the wild… the wild???? In Singapore? So they
ONLY IN SINGAPORE!
