"We weren't asking for a whole lot because we don't want to put our district in financial jeopardy. We can honestly, ready to bargain in an honest, good faith way and they came asking for a five years" said Qualls

...Parents or grandparents of the students bring us food. Businesses have donated food and gift cards. It has been a huge blessing," Cook said. "Each day we miss is like a skipped heartbeat. We need to be there. It's all about the children. No one ever thought it would actually come to this."
