Today marks the six month anniversary of Macie Opperman’s death and the day Park Side chose for their last day in operation.
I’m sad that Park Side is closing. It’s a real loss for the community which doesn’t have enough quality preschools. My son still calls Park Side ‘his preschool’ even though he hasn’t returned and has been attending a different school for months.
I’m sad that Macie died. To lose a child is unimaginable. To lose her in such a preventable and foreseeable way makes it all the more meaningless.
I’m sad that good and loving teachers are losing their jobs. They’ve suffered through this, too. I hope they can find peace in whatever comes next.
I’m sad that I agree it’s necessary for the preschool to lose their license. There may have been a path where Park Side could have survived this crisis, but they were unwilling to take it.
Today is a sad day.
