I have made Parvin Ahmadi, Superintendent, Luz Cazares, Assistant Superintendent, Larry Lagatta, Director of Maintenance, and Tom Drescher, Principal, aware of my accident, starting from last June and throughout this past school year, to my last correspondence on May 7, 2014, and asked that this area be repaired or something be done to warn people of this hazard. Not one of these people have had the courtesy to respond. I have gone to Amador several times this school year to check and see if anything has been done to make this area safer, and as of last Friday, it remains the same. The lunch tables have covered this area during the school year, but a trip hazard still exists, and there is actually more potential for serious injury if a student trips and hits his/her head on one of the metal tables.
In my last correspondence to Mr. Drescher, I asked that he take precautions prior to this year's graduation ceremony and clearly designate this area as hazardous, by cordoning off the area, painting the raised edges in bright paint, etc. I also suggested that there be a clearly visible first aid station set up near the entrance of the football field for graduation, as there was no first aid station last year. I also asked that some kind of permanent repair of the cement be done, such as grinding down the lifted edges, or repaving the entire area. Since I never received a response from Mr. Drescher, I have no idea if any of these things are going to be done.
So, if you are attending, please be careful. It would be very unfortunate for a parent or graduate to suffer a serious injury prior to the graduation and miss the ceremony.
